Iraqi man walks past the election poster of the Iraqi United Coalition reading 'when the others failed we will save our children'

"The U.S. military is working with Iraqi forces and the Iraqi government to provide security for the elections scheduled for Sunday, as daily attacks by insurgents continue. American commanders say Iraqi forces will have a key role on Election Day, but the coalition will provide forces designed to deter or respond to any attack."

How can anyone argue that these people don't want elections, freedom , and a chance to change decades of horror under Saddam.............

We should all "Pray" that the terrorist will be "bound" and unable to do their evil.........

This is one of the most "powerful" images I have ever seen for the liberation of Iraq.

more images from iraq elections











i also "pray" for a peacefull sunday elections,
and that they will bring peace to this country.
but that is going to be very hard,
and "democracy" will have a very high price.
if you ask me, sooner or later,
the iraq will be split in two or three smaller countries,
one for each ethnic-tribal-religious group.
which means,
more borderlines,
with baghdad city in the middle....

i just hope i am wrong.

This is one of those "rare" occasions where you and I completely agree. Including that Iraq will be divided up.

Hey nice pic's...............................

Everyone knows you cant hold genuine elections in a forcibly occupied country. This election is staged, there is going to be trouble out there this weekend, mark my words.

How prophetic there Merc! The whole world knows that "Z" man has threatened to disrupt the elections. If you bother to look around you will find that over 80% of Iraqis want this election.

Forcibly occupied country my arse..............

How is it not a forcibly occupied country? Did they let us in and say, please, please, occupy our country and rid us of our Satanic dictatorship? I dont think so. Anyway, What are you basing the 80% figure on again? I saw you made a thread about it recently but i really cant be bothered too dig it up, 80% seems a bit far fetched considering the amount of electorial candidates and political parties "running" in this "election". Iraqis dont even know where the polling stations are. There wont be a turnout of more than around 30%, and if there is, its rigged.

Answer to question one......ever heard of a guy named Saddam?

Question -2 - this counrty under Saddam was "required" to vote and vote for Saddam. Only men could vote. This time women can vote and some are even running for office. That is why "Z" man is going nuts trying to stop the elections........freedom is Islams worse enemy. The people might actually learn the truth about the rest of the world..........

How is what I said "racest"? Fact....Islamic states are rule by the "mullah's". Fear of them "whipping" up the masses seems to be a fairly contant issue.

I would submitt can't you "go on" without attacking GW?

Don't transfer you personal "hate" for the world into my lap. That is called "tranference". Look into your own heart first, then call me a "racest". Racisim is "hate", I hate no one............

i also fear the same MERC,
i fear that the phrase "bloody sunday" will get a whole new meaning...


Juan Cole, a professor of modern Middle East history at the University of Michigan.



"These elections are a joke,

"The Bush administration has created the worst possible advertisement for democracy because the perception across the Middle East is that democracy means you get a country where everything is out of control," he said.

Critics say Iraq gives democracy a bad name in the Middle East
Before the vote, the administration "has definitely gone into damage-control mode", Stephen Zunes, a politics professor at the University of San Francisco said.

"Once their original rationale [to rid Iraq of weapons of mass destruction] fell apart, they created very high expectations for democracy to be able to justify their takeover," he said.

"Now that they have ended up with a not particularly good demonstration of democracy, they are forced to lower the public's expectations for these elections."



and i also found this interesting fact:

By coincidence, Iraq's 30 January elections fall on the 37th anniversary of the Tet offensive, the Vietnam war turning point that could hold lessons for Iraqi fighters and US policy makers.

Telling the world the "truth" about Islam isn't "bashing". You well know that in my eyes, Islam is a false religion. Too many buy the BS that Islam is a religion of peace and "Allah" is the God of Abraham. And if you will bother to look, EVERY topic I post isn't about "Islam".

So there is that enough of an answer?

So the "war on terror" section should be discussed without any reference to religion................

The terrorist "Jihad", aahhh, screaming "allah akkabar" has nothing to do with religion.

Gezz Bod....your agenda is showing.................
