IRAQ ELECTION A RESOUNDING SUCCESS -- BUSH VINDICATED
Today is a nightmare for all the Bush-haters and negative, anti-American doomsayers. They were hoping that the election in Iraq would fail; they were praying that the insurgent terrorists would be able to murder enough military personnel and civilians to halt the election. But, thank God, that didn´t happen.

Not only was the vote not halted, it was a glorious success. Not only were the Iraqi people not afraid to vote, they were chomping at the bit to risk their lives to demonstrate their desire for freedom.

Although there may be more terrorist attacks within Iraq, the power of the insurgents to create fear has been broken. And President Bush has absolutely been vindicated. Despite any lack of WMDs, it was right to oust Saddam, to help Iraq win its freedom and to plant this seed of democracy in the Middle East.

BUSH LIED and People are still dying. Bush went to war based upon an "IMMINENT THREAT´ NOT to spread ´democracy´. Because a proven and known LIAR GLOATS doesn´t mean it´s the TRUTH.

Read some of the other threads that report EYEWITNESS accounts of Bush´s latest fraud.

"BUSH LIED..." blah, blah, blah.

Tell that to the many millions in Iraq who risked their lives to vote yesterday. Tell them they don´t deserve to be free.

I know you´re gnashing your teeth at Bush´s success, but at least TRY to get past your own ideology and be happy for the Iraqi people who had been oppressed for decades.

« EYEWITNESS: BAGHDAD | Main

January 31, 2005
Some Just Voted for Food
Inter Press Service
Dahr Jamail

BAGHDAD, Jan 31 (IPS) - Voting in Baghdad was linked with receipt of food rations, several voters said after the Sunday poll.

Many Iraqis said Monday that their names were marked on a list provided by the government agency that provides monthly food rations before they were allowed to vote.

”I went to the voting centre and gave my name and district where I lived to a man,” said Wassif Hamsa, a 32-year-old journalist who lives in the predominantly Shia area Janila in Baghdad. ”This man then sent me to the person who distributed my monthly food ration.”

Mohammed Ra´ad, an engineering student who lives in the Baya´a district of the capital city reported a similar experience.

Ra´ad, 23, said he saw the man who distributed monthly food rations in his district at his polling station. ”The food dealer, who I know personally of course, took my name and those of my family who were voting,” he said. ”Only then did I get my ballot and was allowed to vote.”

”Two of the food dealers I know told me personally that our food rations would be withheld if we did not vote,” said Saeed Jodhet, a 21-year-old engineering student who voted in the Hay al-Jihad district of Baghdad.

There has been no official indication that Iraqis who did not vote would not receive their monthly food rations.

Many Iraqis had expressed fears before the election that their monthly food rations would be cut if they did not vote. They said they had to sign voter registration forms in order to pick up their food supplies.

Their experiences on the day of polling have underscored many of their concerns about questionable methods used by the U.S.-backed Iraqi interim government to increase voter turnout.

Just days before the election, 52 year-old Amin Hajar who owns an auto garage in central Baghdad had said: ”I´ll vote because I can´t afford to have my food ration cut...if that happened, me and my family would starve to death.”

Hajar told IPS that when he picked up his monthly food ration recently, he was forced to sign a form stating that he had picked up his voter registration. He had feared that the government would use this information to track those who did not vote.

Calls to the Independent Electoral Commission for Iraq (IECI) and to the Ministry of Trade, which is responsible for the distribution of the monthly food ration, were not returned.

Other questions have arisen over methods to persuade people to vote. U.S. troops tried to coax voters in Ramadi, capital city of the al-Anbar province west of Baghdad to come out to vote, AP reported.

IECI officials have meanwhile ´downgraded´ their earlier estimate of voter turnout.

IECI spokesman Farid Ayar had declared a 72 percent turnout earlier, a figure given also by the Bush Administration.

But at a press conference Ayar backtracked on his earlier figure, saying the turnout would be nearer 60 percent of registered voters.

The earlier figure of 72 percent, he said, was ”only guessing” and ”just an estimate” that had been based on ”very rough, word of mouth estimates gathered informally from the field.” He added that it will be some time before the IECI can issue accurate figures on the turnout.

”Percentages and numbers come only after counting and will be announced when it´s over,” he said. ”It is too soon to say that those were the official numbers.”

Where there was a large turnout, the motivation behind the voting and the processes both appeared questionable. The Kurds up north were voting for autonomy, if not independence. In the south and elsewhere Shias were competing with Kurds for a bigger say in the 275-member national assembly.

In some places like Mosul the turnout was heavier than expected. But many of the voters came from outside, and identity checks on voters appeared lax. Others spoke of vote-buying bids.

The Bush Administration has lauded the success of the Iraq election, but doubtful voting practices and claims about voter turnout are both mired in controversy.

Election violence too was being seen differently across the political spectrum.

More than 30 Iraqis, a U.S. soldier, and at least 10 British troops died Sunday. Hundreds of Iraqis were also wounded in attacks across Baghdad, in Baquba 50km northeast of the capital as well as in the northern cities Mosul and Kirkuk.

The British troops were on board a C-130 transport plane that crashed near Balad city just northwest of Baghdad. The British military has yet to reveal the cause of the crash.

Despite unprecedented security measures in which 300,000 U.S. and Iraqi security forces were brought in to curb the violence, nine suicide bombers and frequent mortar attacks took a heavy toll in the capital city, while strings of attacks were reported around the rest of the country.

As U..S. President George W. Bush saw it, ”some Iraqis were killed while exercising their rights as citizens.”

It may have been a ´resounding success´ to a sadistically delusional megolomaniac like Bush, but, it is no success to the hundreds of thousands of innocents that Bush slaughtered, nor is it a ´resounding success´ to those who have been disenfranchised by this total FRAUD. Just becuse Bush is talking shit again doesn´t make it so.

Re: IRAQ ELECTION A RESOUNDING SUCCESS -- BUSH VINDICATED
Success can be defined in many ways....he claimed it was a success because Saddam Hussein was no longer in power and "the world was a safer place without Saddam"....success could be measured in human terms, as they are trying to do now in the current spin, or success can be measured in economic terms.....what did it cost the American people for the present Adminstration to conduct this war?

First, we destroy the country, then we rebuild it....how much? $500 billion (probably).

Then we send the forces over there, and now bring them home (most of them anyway)....movement of men, materials, etc, $100 billion...(probably)

Next the military contracts to rebuild the lost, damaged, or obsolete equipment....cost...billions probably

Then comes the rehabilitation of the injured and maimed troops, multi-decade benefits to be paid out through VA, social security, disability ....Cost...billions...probably

Then the treatment of thousands of troops and for decades to come through the VA, who will come down with serious diseases from the D.U. ammuniton that was expended....cost...billions probably

Then the fact that most of the returning troops won´t be able to return to similar employment, or any employment for that matter, a reduction in their standard of living for them and their families....cost...billions probably

I am sure that I´ve overlooked a lot, but I just thought about the big stuff....cost...a trillion $, more maybe?

And Bush and Condoleezze Rice, and YOU, call it a huge success. LOL.

I wonder what country we will "free" next, and how much it will cost.

And I wonder what sacrifices our children and grandchildren will have to make for them to conduct this vigilante quest they are on.

Pilfered from Grey Lensman´s Weapons Of Mass Destruction thread. Thanks Grey Lensman.


"One basic truth can be used as a foundation for a mountain of lies, and if we dig down deep enough in the mountain of lies, and bring out that truth, to set it on top of the mountain of lies; the entire mountain of lies will crumble under the weight of that one truth. And there is nothing more devastating to a structure of lies than the revelation of the truth upon which the structure of lies was built, because the shock waves of the revelation of the truth reverberate, and continue to reverberate throughout the Earth for generations to follow, awakening even those people who had no desire to be awakened to the truth."

Total bullshit.
Many GWB naysayers were hoping for an honest election. NOT one where American placed Allawi would "legitimately" take power.

You deserve to live in a theocracy instead of a democracy. under the leadership of a pope, not a president. No deep thought required in a theocracy--just faith and hero worship. You were made for it.

My mother thinks God put GWB in office....well, Mom (now 81) as I told her, there are two Gods....God the Father, and the god of this world, Satan.

These neocon jerks are out to pad their pockets and leave the American people dead broke...just look at the recent news...$9 billion cannot be accounted for...maybe The Carlye Group, or Halliburton or their subsidiaries, or LLC´s have it, along with billions more.

in a couple of years, IMO, the majority of people will be looking back asking what was gained, and was it worth the toll, in lives first, then in dollars, which by then will be the most useless currency in the world.
