In case you missed it (which would be easy because I haven't seen it mentioned on TV) today the New York Times reported Election Change Seems to Ensure Iraqis' Charter.
So what did they do....
So, let me understand this, in order to reject the Constitution more people have to vote against it than could possibly show up to vote. Nice Democracy! This is certainly worth the lives of our young men and women, not to mention the total destruction of the country and the lives of about hundred thousand Iraqis. Democracy.
I'd sure hope so, but not if the CNN, MSNBC and Fox have nothing to say about it. I can already see the glitzy "Irag Votes" graphics.
And it gets better...
"You should not violate the rights of the majority," Maryam Reyes, a member of the Shiite alliance that controls a majority of seats in the assembly, said in support of the measure.
Ms. Reyes said the assembly members had not changed election law, but only clarified the meaning of the word "voters" in the relevant passage. The legal passage in question states: "The general referendum will be successful and the draft constitution ratified if a majority of voters in Iraq approve and if two-thirds of voters in three or more governorates do not reject it."
Ms. Reyes was last seen coming out of a meeting with Karen Hughes who is in the region to help Iraqi women learn how we do things here in our American Democracy. Well I made that up, but geeze the swift boaters had nothing on this gal.
Karl Rove move over... these guys are good.
But seriously, even for this administration, this is amazing. Bush, Cheney, Rummy, Rice, all of you! People are dying in droves for your murderous lies. There were no weapons of mass destruction. There is no liberation. There is no Democracy.
Lies Lies Lies, and still they keep dying.
Let's take a try at this form of Democracy. In the poll below it will be determined that Kossacks want the US out of Iraq only if 66% of all registered Kossacks vote yes. So we need about a million. If not, Kossacks have shown their support for a US Imperial Fascist Occupation for ever and ever. Happy voting...
