Democracy in Iraq?

Back in August I briefly posted on the question of how easily a democratic form of government will (or won't) take hold in Iraq.

Someone who knows a lot more about these things than I do is NRO contributor Stanley Kurtz. I'd like to link to a few articles he's written and/or recommended on the question of democracy in a post-war Iraq.

Finishing the Job
With Eyes Wide Open
Review of the Huntington/Fukuyama dispute
Bali & Karachi
Address to the 2002 Weinberg Founders Conference by Martin Kramer, Editor of the Middle East Quarterly

Kurtz does support a war against Saddam. But he's also aware of the difficulties we'll face in establishing democracy in post-war Iraq.
