The gamut of non-democracies from A to B

Dubya today in Virginia provides a span of countries that will be affected by his brilliant democracy in Iraq:

The success of democracy in Iraq is sending forth the news from Damascus to Tehran that freedom can be the future of every nature [sic ... nation?].

Err ... a line from Damascus to Tehran takes in 2 countries besides Iraq, namely Syria and Iran. Odd how North Africa, from where most European Islamist terrorism seems to have originated, the Arabian Gulf, and Afghanistan and Pakistan are not in the list. Has the GWOT run into "Just two will do?"
