The foreign aid and democracy promotion specter of guiding democratic non-violent transition and regime change is witnessed in Mongolia upon the collapse of the Soviet Union with the presence of the NED. They dealt with the provision and direction of funds, of which are assigned by the CIA, demonstrating the depth of proxy through which US foreign policy maneuvers. 
“The National Endowment for Democracy worked for several years with the opposition to the governing Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party to achieve a very surprising electoral victory. In the six-year period leading up to the 1996 elections, NED spent close to a million dollars in a country with a population of some 2.5 million, the most significant result of which was to unite the opposition into a new coalition, the National Democratic Union.” Simultaneously, the neoliberal Western-dominated economic model (Washington Consensus) was applied to the detriment of the country. James Baker III, one of the world’s most powerful men (according to Engdahl), in support of the NED branch IRI traveled to Ulaanbaatar in 1990 to push this through.  Later, USAID provided assistance to some of the largest sell-offs and privatizations of 2003.  This trend of privatization and sale of valuable national production, industry and assets to the highest bidder is well documented by experts such as Jean Ziegler and occurs in many countries. These were complete macroeconomic reforms. It can also be argued that “on the big picture of economic policy, the democratic process has produced a consistent development strategy, with an acceleration in 1996 in response to the will of the electorate.”  This strategizing was largely due to the MPRP, who also changed their flag emblem by placing a red rose at center. Perhaps this was a shape of things to come. A decade later, Baker went on to visit Shevardnadze in Georgia ahead of the elections in what became the “rose revolution.”  The privatization agenda, attributed to the Washington Consensus model of globalization, was in full swing.
Apart from the financial, democratic and economic sphere of transition came the socio-cultural educational assault. Thousands of civil society organizations and NGOs descended upon the newly freed country.  To date, one of the largest civil society planning organizations in operation in Ulaanbaatar is the Open Society Forum. According to their website, it is the
“leading policy related information online resource in Mongolia - in both Mongolian and English. It is a convenient one-stop gateway offering the latest news, information, policy research, and a host of additional information on various social, economic and political issues.” Aside from the sometimes questionable social engineering motives of Soros, not even the watchdogs of liberty, transparency and “open society” are immune to the deep-rooted corruption of post-socialist Mongolia. There have been instances where Open Forum members have admonished fellow volunteers or workers for NOT accepting bribes. 
Indeed, Soros backed the Baker arrangement: “the step-by-step approach advocated by James Baker represents a significant advance…It constitutes a recognition that markets cannot be left to their own devices, that the authorities have to provide some direction if a breakdown is to be avoided.” The view of the U.S.-Mongolian Business Council was that “the vast potential of Mongolia can now be fully explored by American firms.” 
The dangerous form of capitalism in the wake of globalization proved destructive and caused the country to stagnate under extreme debt. Not only do they have to deal with their own deep-rooted corruption but have also to struggle with foreign feudalization. The price it pays for James Baker’s Washington Consensus is dire. Mongolia’s GDP of about $2 billion annually goes to service its foreign debt which comes out to roughly that same amount. 
The new president of Mongolia has deep ties to the civil society organizations that hold heavy stakes in color revolutions. An application little noticed as Mongolia does not pull very much weight on the world scene. However, its geostrategic importance cannot be underestimated as a Russia-Chinese buffer state and link to North Korea. It is considered the only “true friend” of North Korea. Its special relationship with the United States provides access to a very important region. The U.S. may view Mongolia’s relationship with North Korea as a way to gain further insight. Appointments by Barack Obama such as former USAID Mission Director and Program Officer Jonathon S. Addleton as ambassador to Mongolia blatantly suggest continued use of color revolution network interference framework (USAID being a CIA cover).
Current President Elbegdorj Tsakhia started the first independent newspaper during the collapse of communism in Mongolia. In 1990 he founded Democracy. Like Saakashvili of Georgia, he was educated in the United States, at Harvard. In 2000 he founded the Liberty Center which had received its startup funds from none other than the Soros Foundation, NED and Pact (which receives funding from and works with USAID).  The Georgian Liberty Institute worked closely with the Open Society Institute as well. Some view him as the Barack Obama of Mongolia, if you will. Elbegdorj’s history of democratic struggle needs to be taken into account alongside his excelling in Marxist and Leninist studies. What must not be overlooked is his debt to George Soros and Harvard for supporting his democratic growth.
The song remains the same. From Mongolia (1990) to Georgia (2003) and beyond, the usual suspects perpetuated. The Soros assault, IMF, USAID, NED and actors such as James Baker. Macroeconomic restructuring took place according to the neoliberal model, as suggested by Soros in his own writings. The IMF-NATO trend is obvious, be it non-violently in Mongolia or violently in the Balkans and Caucasus. It is “a consistent and calculated strategy of employing each successive war zone” or democratic revolution “as a launching pad for new aggression.”
