"The streets of Baghdad are empty...
It feels like a city preparing for war."

"...Several Iraqis interviewed yesterday said that they saw the election as a movie directed by the Americans to impress the outside world. "It is like a film," said Abu Draid, an unemployed carpenter. "It is the Americans who will control the next government whatever happens."

I'm thinking that stealing the election from Iraqis (who are starving and really pissed) is a completely different scenario than stealing it from a bunch of indolent, affluent suburbanites hooked to the big tit of gov/corporation-driven consumerism. I'm thinking this could really blow-up in the administration's face. Any thoughts re: this being a trigger to real civil-war?

I hope this explodes in the Bush administrations face. It's not that I want the Iraqi people to suffer. It's just, the Bushies have lied and lied. I'd like to see this all topple them down so we can get the truth out to everyone...Bushco losers...
