This amused me...

SADDAM Hussein did not vote in Iraq's historic election, but he could have done if he had turned up at a polling station, officials said today.
The former dictator was eligible to vote as an Iraqi citizen with no criminal record.

Despite being accused of crimes against humanity and genocide, he has not been convicted.

"If Saddam had wanted to vote he would have been entitled to do so, but he would have had to go to a polling station in person," said Farid Ayar, spokesman for Iraq's Electoral Commission.

The US military, which holds Saddam in a camp near Baghdad airport, confirmed that the ousted ruler had not voted.


I can just image the polling station official asking, "name please?".

Just think, last time there was an election in Iraq, you would have been shot for not voting (yea, I know it was rigged)

Now you get threats of being shot for voting.

If it is not progress, it's democracy!

Btw, I knwo the Iraqis were happy about viting and showing off thier painted fingers... but why was it on thier left hands?

maybe because they wanted to keep the ink for a bit, but wanted to be able to eat with their right hand.....
Hindus are much mroe strict on that.
