Rebirth of a Nation

 Something that looks an awful lot like democracy is beginning to take hold in Iraq. It may not be ‘mission accomplished’—but it’s a start.

By Babak Dehghanpisheh, John Barry and Christopher Dickey

NEWSWEEK  Published Feb 26, 2010 From the magazine issue dated Mar 8, 2010

„Iraqi democracy will succeed,” President George W. Bush declared in November 2003, „and that success will send forth the news from Damascus to Tehran that freedom can be the future of every nation.” The audience at the National Endowment for Democracy in Washington answered with hearty applause. Bush went on: „The establishment of a free Iraq at the heart of the Middle East will be a watershed event in the global democratic revolution.” (…)

The elections to be held in Iraq on March 7 feature 6,100 parliamentary candidates from all of the country’s major sects and many different parties. They have wildly conflicting interests and ambitions. Yet in the past couple of years, these politicians have come to see themselves as part of the same club, where hardball political debate has supplanted civil war and legislation is hammered out, however slowly and painfully, through compromises—not dictatorial decrees or, for that matter, the executive fiats of U.S. occupiers. Although protected, encouraged, and sometimes tutored by Washington, Iraq’s political class is now shaping its own system—what Gen. David Petraeus calls „Iraqracy.” With luck, the politics will bolster the institutions through which true democracy thrives.
