[American terror war policy of forcing premature elections as a political exercise, intended to demonstrate a progression of "democracy" in an Arab/Muslim war zone, even though it was a complete fabrication. This imbecilic deception has resulted in the elections of "Islamist" governments from Palestinian Gaza, to Iraq and all of the "Arab spring" countries. Unless this was the American intention from the start, then it confirms that American policies to create a Greater Middle East have been "misguided," at best. Forcing premature elections upon Muslim populations, who have had no previous experience with democratic institutions, is a surefire formula for replacing authoritarian governments with radical "Islamist" ones. In short, it is a policy certain to empower the Muslim Brotherhood candidates, which it has done very efficiently, so far. If this wasn't the intention of the American government, from the beginning, then it is either proof of the shortsightedness of America's bi-partisan leadership, or of their ignorance of the law of consequences.
American politicians haven't a clue about where their wrong-headed decisions are taking us....The only alternative to one of the overwhelming ignorance of America's political class, is one which suggests an answer that is far too sinister for most of us to even contemplate--We are in the mess we are in because that was the plan all along (SEE: The planned collapse of USA).]

Although elections and political reforms are needed in the wake of the Arab Spring, premature elections could usher in a period of continued political instability punctuated by violence, or introduce new totalitarian regimes that would assume power under the pretext of maintaining order and stability.
Of paramount importance is the formation of transitional governments proportionally representative of all segments of the populations for a minimum of five years.
Such a government would be tasked with writing a new constitution and instituting gradual political reforms, while promoting human rights and economic development programs. Otherwise, elections will fail to produce the desired outcome of a free and vibrant new political and social order.
