The future of Iraq, its people, and a new government

Victory and hope are heralded worldwide for the Iraqi people as they cast their votes for new leadership. A point I would like to make is this: a distinction should not be made between “red” and “blue” states; right and wrong policies; for it was a victory as well for the United States and all Americans who treasure their freedom. In this instance, we are all Americans, “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” This is an opportunity for us to learn and study the birth and growth of a new government.

With this in mind, many uncertainties remain, and the question I pose is, will the new government evolve into an Islamic Republic or will the frail seed of democracy survive and grow and claim the hearts of the Iraqi people?

A glimpse into the future may reveal neighboring Iran having influence within the new government, giving rise to another concern for the President, a potential reality, and if this is the case, foreign policy will shift to Iran (as it already has), an historically anti-America country that breeds terrorists and insurgent groups, creating new fodder for the American people and the politicians at home. Former policies that were clear-cut will now stimulate complications, and although an election was held, the war is still far from over, bringing optimistic victory, yet constrained and cautious.

How far is the United States willing to go if its objective is to bring democracy to the Middle East; will this mean another war, and will the American people support it? Iraq and Iran are intrinsically connected and to cut the umbilical cord will be difficult. This concern has validity simply because the Islamic religion is pervasive in the daily lives of the Iraqi people. The world watches and waits.
