IRAQ: THE STATE WE'RE IN - Belfast Telegraph

A diminishing number of Iraqis were hopeful each time the US and its Iraqi allies announced that some new hurdle on the road to democracy and prosperity has been overcome. In June 2004, Mr Allawi's interim government supposedly took over from the occupation authorities, though many of the ministers were chosen by the US and UN envoys Robert Blackwill and Lakhdar Brahimi. Violence lessened for a few weeks and then intensified. The same thing happened after the elections in January this year when the Shia and the Kurds won a majority and the Sunni boycotted the poll. After prolonged negotiations a government was formed by Ibrahim al-Jaafari, the new Prime Minister. A few months later the Shia and Kurds but not the Sunni agreed a draft constitution to be put to a referendum on 15 October. None of these developments were necessarily bad in themselves but they were grossly oversold and pushed through at high speed to impress the American and British publics. They were not the solutions they purported to be. All raised excessive expectations at home and abroad.
