Well, we might not be able to afford to, but we're sure enough still providing ROBUST support to the military dictatorship of Pervez Musharraf in Pakistan, and trying to sell him F-16's for some reason. The US has never cared about democracy in its policy in the Middle East, otherwise they would not have assassinated Mohammed Mossadegh, the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran, or backed Saddam Hussein's overthrow of a popular government in Iraq.

And the idea that the Iraq War was primarily about democracy, or that the US has any intention of supporting an Iraqi government that is not pro-American and doesn't open the oil spigots to America at a discount and provide a base for further US military operations in the Middle Easy is laughable.
