Will Iraq Be One of the Middle Eastern Dictatorships to Fall?

Posted by libhom Sunday, February 13, 2011

Here are some interesting news stories that haven't been emphasized by the US corporate media.

Iraq Deaths Estimator
Hundreds of Iraqis protest lack of basic services
(Reuters 2/11/11)

Lawyers lead anti-government protest in Baghdad (AP 2/11/11)

Iraqis step up protest in job and food crisis (The National - Abu Dhabi 2/6/11)

Iraq's Maliki says he won't seek 3rd term, in possible reverberations from Egypt (Washington Post 2/11/11)

Someone who hasn't followed the Iraq story might be asking, "But, isn't Iraq a democracy?" Hardly. George W. and Barack Bush have rigged all the elections there to keep a divided and impotent government in place, a government that was so weak it couldn't even kick out Blackwater (now Xe) after that employees had gotten caught killing Iraqi civilians. If this vote rigging sounds shocking, remember that the 2000 and 2004 US presidential elections were stolen.

If freedom and democracy keep spreading in the Middle East, would it really be that surprising if the Iraqis decided they want some too? No one could blame them for taking what supposedly had been given to them by Saddam Hussein and then by George W. Bush.

Let's hope the Iraqis finally get their freedom.

  1. Wouldn't it be ironic if Bush liberated Iraq and Obama lost Iraq?

  3. I find it amazing that there are people so ignorant that they actually would say that Bush "liberated" Iraq. Murdering over 1 million Iraqis and turning their country into a bombed out colony is hardly "liberating" them.

    Republicans truly are a confederacy of dunces.

     
  4. libhomo: In fairness, the media is really focused on this Lindsay Lohan thing. I mean, she might go to jail!
