As the United States withdraws from Iraq and eventually Afghanistan will the resources put in to those countries pay a dividend, or will matters inevitably revert to past centuries of tribalism.
One thing for certain, wherever American military might has passed we leave a by- product, the American ‘pop-culture’ remnant taken up by the youth of the country attempting to imitate life in America. In this case there is a strong cultural divide which may mute this process..
