1. What the hell is this June 30 deadline?
What the fuck is it supposed to mean?

2. What the June 30 deadline means
Bunnypants has recently said that the US would stick to its June 30 deadline to transfer power in Iraq to certain undesignated transferees.

"What the fuck does that mean?" is a good question, I think.

3. How about April 30 2004?
With a cease-fire and withdrawal in between then and now?

Blackwater, MPRI, Sandline, Erinys,
and all the other Executive Outcomes spin-offs
can remain and show us all what they are made of.

4. I cannot answer this poll.
The whole question is illegitimate. The occupation is illegitimate. Now is the time to hand over power to the people of Iraq so that they can determine their own destiny. We must not be the ones to impose the terms on this--they are. We must not impose a social system on Iraq.

5. Yeah, it's kind of a weird one, but I was hoping somebody could
make some sense of it.

7. I think a better poll question is:
Who will be on the Republican ballot for president and vice-president in November 2004 ?

8. To Whom is control being transferred?
Jon Stewart had a good bit on this last night. The June 30 date makes no sense unless there is an Iraqi goverment that we can transfer power to.

9. GGGrrrrrr...
I get furious everytime I hear the talking heads debating this issue. The deadline is a farce. Our military will still be in control. The edicts of Bremer cannot be overturned. Private, American corps will still take over every aspect of Iraq's authority (called Privitization) . The Iraqi governing council will still have the sword of Damecles hanging over their head.

The only difference is that Bremer will go home.

Turn over authority? I DON'T THINK SO. It''s a lie. It's a farce.

10. well
obviously 'yes' is going to be the winner here

liberals who want our troops of iraq as soon as possible will vote 'yes' because they don't want to extend it

conservatives who think that everything that bush does is 100% correct will vote 'yes' because bush said it is a good date to transfer the power

yah it is a weird poll

11. June 30th is the date for *'s photo-op
The wonderful photo that will tell the voters that we've liberated millions of Iraqis, and it's out of our hands now, so now we can get back to the business re-installing our fearless leader.

12. If the intent
is to send Iraq to Hell in a handbasket, then the 30th will be fine.

Iraq is not colonial America. Iraqis have no concept or experience with democracy, only the cult of personality on one hand and brutality on the other. Who's going to lead? Chalabi? That'd be great, an ethically-challenged pretender sent by another ethically-challenged pretender.

Kinda fits, don't it?
