I know I am kind of jumping the gun here on doing more current events then setting the scene in terms of history, but I thought this was a good reference article to see you Iraq’s involvement in the arab spring! I thought it was especially interesting the comparison Washington Post offers that other Arab states could come to resemble Iraq in that they will be “democracies” but with competing Islamic based parties. Given the 8 year Iraq invasion by the US I found it perpexling that other Arab states would resemble Iraq’s outcome. We can discuss this after you read it and discuss implications-if any.
