The Future Of The Iraqi Government

783 words - 3 pages

The future of Iraq is in the hands of the U.S. and with that the U.S. has promised to assemble a democracy for the Iraqi people.

The advantages of Democracy Lite is that the U.S. troops will be over in Iraq for the least amount of time. This is were November's election may come into play.
