Anything is possible, but likely I do not think so. I think that some people there really want it to be but the forces of Al Queda are still to strong and people are still to afraid what will happen if they go against everything there and what has been done for years.
But it should be up to them to decide what they want, not what we want for them. We need to stop trying to control other nations choices, and allow them to make their own for themselves. This is part of why so many hate us, because we try and force our way of living on others even if they don't want it. It needs to stop. So yeah democracy is possible in Iraq, but only if they want it.
Democracy is possible in Iraq, but only if the Iraqi people determine their own fate. The United States and other western democracies can only assist in the nation building. A puppet government should not be in place. Iraqis need to determine the leadership of the country, if the head of state disagrees with U.S. policy.
Iraq, and the Middle East in general, do not have a long tradition of democratic rule, nor do they have the kind of institutions in place that help to ensure a free and fair society. It is possible for them to build up these institutions, but it will take a very long time, and more effort than the US is probably willing and able to put forth, especially when there are so many far more pressing and relevant domestic problems.
I believe that democracy is possible in Iraq if the people of the country are truly devoted to it and receive support and assistance from other nations in order to achieve an autonomous democracy. Revolutions against tyrannical governments in Libya, Syria and Egypt also offer further encouragement that there are movements toward democracy in the region.
