US Pressure

It seems to me that the US are fogetting that Democracy is rarely a smooth process. Iraq should be given credit for emerging from almost complete chaos and failure into a state which has the capacity to hold free elections. America is hardly in a posistion to tell Iraqis what to do seeing as on Biden's recent trip he emphasised the need for Iraq to reject foreign interference. Surely this should be true for the US then, not just Iran? Progress will be made, but it will take time, but better a long awaited but stable and representative government than a hurried and uneffective one at America's bidding.
