#2 Not all cultures are equal. Some are children that seem unable to govern themselves without starting fights all the time. Not sure what the answer is but democray doesn't seem to work when the population is uneducated and easily manipulated. Perhaps Monarchy because that at least as the stamp of credibility compared to a vanilla flavored dictator.

#3 Islam is a religion and political system for slaves (and perverts). Democracy may not be the best way to go in the ME, but Islam is definitely the other extreme. Maybe a nice constitutional monarchy or something.

#6 A monarchy is a tough sell for Americans.

Obviously not any more.
