Iraq after the war
Breakfast debate on rebuilding Iraq
Damage to a communications centre in Baghdad
As coalition forces move ever closer to the Iraqi capital Baghdad, attention is beginning to turn to what the country will be like when the war is finally over.

Breakfast discussed this with Middle East analyst Dr Toby Dodge and Dr Sultan Barakat who specialises in post-war reconstruction.

We asked the question what will a post-war Iraq look like and what role will the current opposition play?

The US Secretary of State Colin Powell promised a role for the UN in rebuilding Iraq in Brussels yesterday but there are rumours that opinion is split on that back home in Washington.

The issue is of course a delicate one. Some Iraqis may well want rid of Saddam Hussein but do they want to be taken over, as they may see it, by Americans instead?
