7. blogger from iraq....raed
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 10:52 PM by seabeyond
The number of Iraqis living outside Iraq excedes four million people. Yes, more than 4,000,000. Around three million of them can vote. More than two million of the total number of Iraqis live in the 14 countries that have voting centers.

The total number of registered votes worldwde is 280,303. Which means that less than 10% of the Iraqis outside Iraq registered their names.

If this is the total number outside, I wonder what the numbers are like inside Iraq. I called my brother Khalid today, and he said that Baghdad is like a no man zone. He went walking all around the area without finding a single open shop or restaurant!

If people are not going outside their homes for eating, who will go vote?

These elections are fake and illegal, they are not representative of Iraqi opinions at all.
