They always go in tandem. Democracy promoters always choose the world’s oil and gas rich countries to spread their democracy. This secret love between oil and democracy should not stay in disguise.
Wherever they smell oil, democracy promoters run fast, and they get faster if they smell both oil and gas. Libya, Venezuela, Iraq and Syria have massive swathes of oil and gas existing and newly discovered. Look how many countries are spreading democracy there.
Since oil is unsmellable in North Korea, democracy could be postponed, there is no rush.
So goes money, so goes democracy, so goes politics.
