Iraq's 'Young Democracy'
An interesting opinion piece from Gwynne Dyer about Iraq and George Bush's comment in his book “The region is more hopeful with a young democracy setting an example for others to follow.”
Gwynne does not think the 'young democracy' has much future.
Meanwhile, Iraq may be sliding into another mini-civil war, and there is no reason to think that the quite
astonishing level of corruption in the ministries is going to decline. There are not many countries in the
region that want to follow the example set by this “young democracy.” They are just hoping that the
bloodshed and the hatred do not spread.
