I enjoyed the video. It was a pretty good advertisement.
But it is really not an election. The same thing happened in Afghanistan. The only guy who was able to go out and campaign was Karazi because he had the whole US army at his side. The other poor flunkies were too scared.
Imagine having an election where it is not even safe enough to have a picture of the candidate on the ballot?
And worse .... this election is the election to choose the people who are going to write the constitution for Iraq. There is another election next year after the constitution is written.
We all know ....
In the U.S. "pretended" ignorance is considered a "strength".
I was reading a blog the other day and where it was claimed that ballots are being sold for 400 bucks each.
There is a problem with the voters list. The names or list was comprised of information from Iraq's food ration program during the sanctions.
Thousands upon thousands of Iranian's are truckin' over the border and buying ballots and to vote. Iran would like "their" man in control. I think that is why the U.S. is bad-mouthing Iran so much lately .... because they know that after the election, Iran will have huge influence within Iraq.
This blog is a pretty good one. I just found it the other day. The spelling is really bad sometimes, but the information is realistic.

This one here is pretty good too.
