I don't thinks that's a given. Right now, they have a coalition with the Kurds. It could happen though, we'll see.
Is right for us to say they >shouldn't?
If that's what they chose, we have to step out. A govenment can have Islam at it's base and still be democratic.

We want the end of terrorism, and we're hoping that Democracy will get us there. It might work, it might not.
However, like I said, I think that once a country becomes democratic, it's not a closed society anymore, thus one of the main factors that lead people to embrace terrorism is gone. ------------------------------
