Post Iraqi election worry's.....
We only had two candidates running for our election, Iraq has over 7000. Try and tell me that when alawi is appointed, some if not a few of those other candidates, aren't gong to be pissed off.
Do we really think that there is going to be a real election over there? Oh please. Moron* is just going through the motions of what he defines as democracy, aka US puppet.
So when do you think the civil war will begin in earnest? I'm thinking, about a month from now, when alawi has his "mandate". He will use his "capital" to basically squeeze the nuts of every Iraqi male to capitulate to his will. And all the US has to say, "it's their gov't, it's their call". Since we ignore the Geneva Convention, so can alawi.
So alawi the former bathist thug will go back to his old ways and be the new saddam.
The names have been changed to protect the guilty.

1. apparently the "great lie"
that is being told to the Iraqi people is that after the election WE WILL LEAVE... According to tonights Evening News on CBS, the ads encouraging them to vote also hint (you know, like the RW does) that the troops will start to draw down.

3. It's OK, The Fix Is In...Rummy's On The Job
This isn't like our Presidential election, it's like an off-year Congressional one...people are supposed to select delegates to a Constitutional Convention and then in 6 months go to the voters again with a newly written constitution.

It took our founding fathers 2 years to write a constitution and that was without an occupying army camped outside their door micro-managing every little thing. Notice how the concept of "election" is being sold as opposed to specific candidates or issues. That's because this is purely a dog & pony show that is this regime's latest attempt to legitimize it's pillage and destruction of that country and this one.

As long as we have 150,000 troops in that country, we're calling the shots and Rummy will have the final say as to who runs the country and how it's run. This endgame is to put in stooges in the Kurdish and Shiite regions who will control the oil and our corporations will control them.

I'm amazed how many are buying this charade. This is yet another major tactical blunder on what will be known one day as America's worst and dirtiest war.
