The wr is almost over, with allied forces at the gates of Bagdd. However this article from the NYT does not paint an optimistic picture about the success of the "hearts and minds" battle for public opinion. Before the wr began, the State department wrote a paper on the region entitled "No Dominos." It explained why installing a democracy in Irq was unlikely to produce a domino effect amongst neighbouring countries. The reality of the region? There is not a functioning democracy in existence. The challenge to gov is not a nascent democracy movement at all, but fundamentlism. This wr will just further inflame those movements and radicalise one of the few countries that while barking mad, was at least secular.
