Democracy does suck because it is so easily compromised …

I suggest you not try to get rid of it. Could get bloody, and a generation would be lost before things stabilized.

The 20th century is littered with examples of democratically elected socialist governments that have sanctions put against them…

I can’t think of a single example. What did you have in mind.

What are they scared of?

That Marxists might gain power and burn the place down. The jury is basically in on this one and has been for some time, the latest example being Venezula, but also Cuba, North Korea, the Soviet Union, and the fact that China and Vietnam had to turn into capitalists in order to prevent social revolution. The system simply does not generate the same standards of living that capitalism does.
