The new Iraqi givernment dominated by the Shiites want to be followed by Islamic law. Is right for us to say they shouldn't? Even in Afghanistan after the overthrow of the taliban, many women continued to wear burkas and did not object to strict dress codes. Also Uzbekistan and Kazikstan(excuse the spelling) are much worse than say Iran in terms of human rights , but is instrumental in helping the US fight terrorism. is Democracy what we want in the middle east or end of terrorism. I feel that one is not neccesarily synonomis with the other.
