Daily voting news today should include one thing.
Why are you ignoring the real story today Brad? Because its good news for Iraqis and America, so its bad news for you.
Your readers and liberal readers are shielded from the truth. If todays iraq vote being absent from the pages of liberal "news" sourses isnt telling, nothing will ever be.
Maybe some Americans will die tomarrow for you.

Perhaps a naive question, what are the chances of getting access to a number of the cards in machines used in 2004 election to re-test them to see how they produce results?

There wasn't any good news about the elections.
Its still a permanent Islamist theocracy now, that is the verdict. They are still forging ahead with exactly what they intended to do. The only actual good news from anything to do with Iraq is that the troops will be coming home soon braindead, because they will be forced to.
This is who owns the Iraq war: Not anyone else, sir dittohead.
Not because any of their leaders "decided" they shall come home, whatsoever.
And I have to say this was a long time in coming for America's own democracy, its always been this corrupted but suddenly everyone realizes-> Two and two together, voting machines=neocons. And nobody wins.

Can we challenge of those diehard Diebold supporters across the country? If Hursti could hack one then he could hack any of them.
If we take out 6 or 7 of them publicly, one after another, then it would make for a great news story.

What Ricky and other trolls will never understand is that if Iraqis were given a vote on the following ballot proposition, it would carry by a larger majority than any of the individual candidates:
"Resolved, that all military forces and embedded personnel of the United States of America leave Iraq at once."
But Iraqis aren't given a vote on that. What's truly amazing from recent polls is that Shiites and Sunnis are equal in this wish...at well over 70%. Considering that Saddam Hussein was allied with the Sunnis (though himself not religious) one would expect Shiites to be more sympathetic to the United States. Not so.
It's a nice day for Iraqis. If the elections aren't rigged, it's a symbolic victory for them, albeit it probably won't matter a great deal in their lives. If the elections are rigged, it will only intensify hatred of the United States throughout the Muslim world.

You people dont even realize what a huge deal it is that they can vote at all. You are so far inside your politics you cant even call a fair election a good thing.
You have no chance of being elected in this country.

You seem to be so far inside your politics, you don't even care whether fair is really fair.

Americans (and Iraqis) seem to be dying for Haliburton and for the oil industry and for the political fortunes of the Bush family and their allies.
But you don't seem to care.

Why is it Liberals think ever election is false? Oh yeah, they cant win them.
Liberals claim to be for freedom but every time there is a vote you never see them happy.

Yes, MARKH, you've got a point. In the past bras have been burned, flags have been burned, many have been hung in effigy, etc., all in symbolic protest. Destroying Diebold machines would be a similar protest, one that would be hard to ignore.
I wouldn't do it, but I wouldn't be surprised if it came to that. As JFK said, "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable". If the Velvet Revolution makes no headway, it won't go away, it will only become something much more monumental than velvet.
This Iraqi election is a sham, the same as the last two presidential elections in The USA. Big money is running the show. What America is trying to force in Iraq has a snowball's chance in hell of succeeding. As Vidal stated, "I don't see us winning this war. We've made enemies out of a billion Muslims". You'd better hope he's wrong. So far, there're not a lot of signs that he is.

Yeah I guess everyone who doesn't agree with you is a liberal and hates america, medium blight.
Give me a freaking break. So what they can vote, its good that they're just alive I'll give them that.
If the morons had let the Zionist Neocons screw it up anymore, Iraq would be a petrie dish with millions dead and never stop warring against eachother. Iran would have taken completely over.
Oops, that's the end goal too. Its not over until the troops are out.

I remember how much I used to want a free Russia, Berlin, and others in the old Soviet Empire.
But I always knew they had to do it themselves, along with some good leaders.
The same in Vietnam. But I knew the difference in reality. And I rejoiced when Russia moved closer to democracy. I was sad when Vietnam did not.
But I accepted the reality that it takes the people of a nation to bring freedom to themselves, no one can walk that lonely valley for someone else. You gotta walk that walk one your own.
That reality is the same today, and tomorrow for the people of Iraq and the middle east.
How I long for the real democracy for Iraq. And how it hurts when the phony type, brought at the end of a gun, poses as the real thing.
This neoCon admin has let not only the Iraqi people down, but the US and the world too. The neoCon view of freedom and democracy sucks.
