Steve Courtenay Egypt Arab Spring eh, promoted by the UK and USA? Let's give them democracy,eh? Iraq, Egypt, Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria. What is the common link? They are all Muslim states and the don't do democracy. They all need harsh dictators (like Saudi) and that is the only way they can live together.
Dave Pickup Not strictly true, Dave. Preinvasion Iraq was a Muslim state and they had a long war with Iran. Both had strong leaders and dispute that they could not live peacefully together.
Paul Pann Unfortunately, Paul, Dave has a point. Post-invasion Iraq is a Muslim state. Democracy was imposed on Iraq by the West as it was in Afghanistan, but it's an alien concept to Islam and there are no self-generated Islamic true democratic countries..
