Are insurgents allowed to vote in Iraq?
If not, then what else can they do?

1. This ballot will self destruct in 10 seconds
They're voting but their ballots aren't standard issue. I don't think their voter registration cards meet Katherine Blackwell's paper weight guidelines either.

2. Probably not.
If the US suspects someone of being a part of the insurgency, going near a polling place would be unwise.

8. Well, it does resemble democracy, thats why they are doing it.
Because they can sell it to america as democracy.

3. Don't be silly! Those insurgents aren't Iraqi citizens!
They're outside terrists!

Mmm-hmm.

6. well they're probably going to label 99% of the population "insurgents"...
and hand the presidency to Allawi. I don't think this will be a legitimate election.

9. I think..
...the fact that a person was voting, would make him not an insurgent. Since the insurgents have threatened to kill anyone who votes, I guess he'd then be obligated to slit his own throat.

I am sure an insurgent could vote, if he had the proper ID that they require, if any, but I just don't think that's what they are about, since they've said democracy is "evil" and blew up polling places.

Heyo

10. Are you for real?
I mean, you were kinda joking right? Cause if not, what you said is kinda dumb. It's like you're saying they can't vote because they're insurgents, so therefore they have no choice but to become insurgents. Get it?

They are choosing to become insurgents because they CAN'T vote, but (more likely) because they CAN vote. See they don't want anyone to vote.

I'd imagine that anyone that shows up, is an Iraqi, and is not violent will be allowed to vote.

11. They're giving free rides to the polls, to suicide bombers.
