Without entering into any discussion regarding the motivation and justification for the invasion of Iraq in 2003, suffice it to say, the justification was a gross error and miscalculation. The calculus that a Western form of government would flourish in Iraq even though democracy is anathema to Islam was really stupid. The Republic of Iran, which is Shia like Iraq, is an example of Muslim democracy. Factions, religious parties, tribes, ethnic groups, pervade Iraq which means any form of democracy is Byzantine squared. Democracy does not mean free elections alone but includes institutions like a free press and an independent judiciary.
