encourage uprising

Egypt, Syria, Lybia and the list goes on.
Certain countries; countries like the USA, Canada, England etc have encouraged, backed and fully supported uprising in other countries. We label other governments and leaders as evil, tyrants, dictators, murderers and we call those who are attempting to overthrow their government as protesters, civilians, amongst other words that label them as innocent.
The media goes along with this. However, usually we see (in due time) that those people are not so innocent, we have heard that they torture, rape, murder, and so on. This is not only done by the opposing military but civilians as well.
The media seems to fail us by siding with one side and not reporting on the other, or not reporting correctly.
Now the question I ask; the reason for this article is this. What if other countries and their leaders were to encourage and support an uprising by civilians in Canada or the USA to overthrow their government because they no longer work for the people? would our governments step aside and say that the people have spoken and they will step down? I don't think so, I think that every person who is against the government will be arrested or even murdered by the police and military.
So why do we allow and encourage such things in other countries but not our own?
The USA is a perfect example where the majority of the people want Obama and his people gone because it has become more of a dictatorship rather than a government by the people/for the people. Canada is very much becoming the same.
The Governments of the countries of North America are hypocrites. They claim to want freedom and democracy for other nations, even supplying weapons and money to those attempting to overthrow their governments but yet will never tolerate the same within their own.
Will this ever change? I don't think so, I fear that it will only get worse.

      2/2/14 O’Reilly’s Super Bowl interview with President Obama

      The Average Federal worker $108,000 Private sector $69,000 Fringe benefits Federal employee $40,000 Private $9,000. PAY INEQUALITY? public servants need a pay cut not a raise.

      How many times have we heard the President and Washington cronies say '' We are a nation of the rule of law ?''

      2009 Obama promised jobs and transparency. we the people received phony scandals and an attempt to take away of our freedoms under the Constitution

      I think my memory is not that bad. And I think I protested our government in the early '70's. And I think our president stepped down and out. Of course he was caught in a lie, but more importantly he continued non-representative armed conflict in Asia. We had another president in the '90's that was impeached and had the people supported it he would have been forced to step down and out.

      So we do allow for that. Happily ours have been reasonably peaceful transitions.

      OTOH we did have brutal civil war and other countries had major influence in that horror of horrors.

      So I think your question is answered by historic truth. Our democracy does not really need outside influence for transitions to occur and sitting rulers to move aside. Even though of course it is there.

      McCarthism was a major movement. Against outside influence which while exaggerated was real.

      Well, despite the fact that this administration tries in everyway it can to move America toward a dictatordship of the liberal elitist class it is still a democracy, well republic anyway. America has only supported people rebelling against their government when it is a totalitarian government (or possibly a democracy in name only) that has no respect for the human rights of their citizens, of course with this administration who knows? Our foreign policy seems to be the same policy Obama used to get elected which is:

      Tell your audience whatever they want to hear and then run and hide, lie if they catch up to you and remember all that government red ink you created can be used to paint imaginary red lines dictators better not cross! or what happens when they do? Memorize this "I didn't say that."

      Mark my words, if we stay on the track we're on there will be a day when democracies across the world will "encourage and support an uprising by civilians in the USA to overthrow their government because they no longer work for the people." That day will come when America's strength in the world has fallen to the extent that other countries no longer have to respect her power.

      As for the media, generally there is no mainstream media in America, it has become the propaganda arm of the Democrat party though it has to give lip service to "journalistic" principles so they can continue to decieve. If it weren't for the technological rise of alternative (other than the mainstream) media sources they would certainly have a monopoly on telling you how and what to think but they still "own" the uninformed voters.
