If by "mainly" you mean "sometimes"

Please to Explain

From last night's State of the Union address:

"The United States has no right, no desire and no intention to impose our form of government on anyone else"

and

"Our aim is to build and preserve a community of free and independent nations, with governments that answer to their citizens and reflect their own cultures. And because democracies respect their own people and their neighbours, the advance of freedom will lead to peace."

Is it just me, or do those two sentences sound contradictory? "We don't care what kind of government you have... as long as its a democracy *wink*!"

(by the way, how odd is it that the first link I came to for full text of the State of the Union was The Globe and Mail?)
