Iraq should be proof enough, that the illusion of a US style Democracy for the region has as much chance of success as a snowball in hell. Iran had the chance for Democracy with the secular Nationalist Mossadegh, if not for a CIA coup that removed him. Otherwise we would not have had to deal with Khomeini and other Mullahs with a Prophet complex and the Islamic Republic of Iran. There is little doubt in my mind, we will see unstable and corrupt Saudi Leadership join their Swiss bank accounts in the not too distant future, unless fundamental changes are being implemented. The support of the teaching and export of Wahabism has come back to haunt them. They may have created the instrument of their own demise.
