Bernard Lewis writes eloquently in Foreign Affairs about the Middle East, Iraq and the spread of democracy. He closes with:

The end of World War II opened the way for democracy in the former Axis powers. The end of the Cold War brought a measure of freedom and a movement toward democracy in much of the former Soviet domains. With steadfastness and patience, it may now be possible at last to bring both justice and freedom to the long-tormented peoples of the Middle East.
