It looks that there is a good chance that Iraq will become another Iran with Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani.

If this happens will the USA do something about this man or let the Iraqis live with their choice ?

Depends, how you understand 'democrcy':

Democracy:

[...]
1 a : government by the people; especially : rule of the majority b : a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections
2 : a political unit that has a democratic government
3 capitalized : the principles and policies of the Democratic party in the U.S.
4 : the common people especially when constituting the source of political authority
5 : the absence of hereditary or arbitrary class distinctions or privileges
