More than ten years after the US army toppled Saddam Hussein, the country has elections, political parties and a functioning news media - but what good is democracy if there is no security? Almost every day brings news of sectarian attacks, most of them carried out by Al Qaida against Shiite targets. Cyril Vanier and his panel discuss whether the country can avoid civil war.
