This article is written by Howard LaFranchi for "The Christian Science Monitor". The target audience is the general public. This article is about the Iraqi government working too slowly and not succeeding to do anything. The government is moving at a snails pace and has yet to accomplish a goal in the steps toward democracy. The article also discusses the controversy between people opinions on how the U.S. should be helping. Some say that America should be forcefully encouraging the government to hit "benchmarks". Others say America should focus on the civilian rights and such realted topics.
