Dewey Election in Iraq (161* d) RE: Election in Iraq 01 Feb 05

How utterly pathethic that mudcatters are so immersed in politics, as to not rejoice in the liberation of another group of human beings, every bit as smart, every bit as intelligent, and and every bit as deserving of their freedom the rest of you are here on thuis board, that already have it and deserve it.

So you didn't like Bush's invasion of the country, So you didn't think it was right to destroy and rebuild so much of the country's infra-structure. So you thought the Amercian government was a bit a of nosey, ignorant, imperialistic bully. So be it! Those things are your God given right! and be it far from me to tell you that you are wrong to believe as you wish to believe.

But the follow is terrible and unforgivable to anyone living under Tyranny whoever they might be throughout this world:

to actually make fun of and scoff at the first free election in modern middle-east history, merely because you do not agree with the sitting U.S. President, and the means by which this miracle came into being. Despite the war and occupation, I doubt if the Iraqi people, would share your sentiments at all, (at least concerning the elections)

After all, If you, yourself lived in such a country,you would want a vote, especially after being half gased to death, tourtured, imprisoned without cause, mutilated. etc.

There were far worse gorvernments in the past that have emerged than the one that is imerging now. Or are Mudcatter noststalgic for the days of Saddam,

In truth, It can be said that any form of government, even the fragile one that is emerging now is better than the one that was and is now thankfully over. (I already know many of you do not like the current U.S. President, but that is not the issue we are facing today, Yesterday was about the free election in Iraq, it is about the Iraqu people)

The Iraqi people might have not liked the protracted and obviously continued occupation of their country. I seriously doubt, however, that they would not like the right to vote and choose their own destiny and future. FOR THEMSELVES BY THEMSELVES.

The Iragi people are every bit as smart, every bit as capable and every bit as deserving of freedom as any other group of human beings on this existing planet.

Freedom is for EVERYONE! Not just opinionated Spoiled rotten mudcatters (from free nations by the way) that have NEVER had the wieght of tyranny at their throats, nor the threat of death and/or torture in their lives.

Even if you don't respect the Bush Policies over-all, at least have the respect to rejoice in this first ever free election, a clean election which generated more turn outs than the recent U.S. election.

A 60 percent voter turn out in a dangerous country is an amazingly admirable feat, and should make even the most caloused left winger out there understand the power and potential of freedom.

Surprise! Surprise! Folks! Guess what! The Iraq's like their freedom and to think and choose just as much mudcatter's do.

Freedom for any group of people is not an ordinary desire. It is a BURNING desire, and is as natural in its postive energy as is running water.

And I gurantee you that if (I mean WHEN) the Iragi's do get their freedom they'll hold on to it for dear life, And they will never forfeit it to anyone who wants to take it away again.


(who had an awesome day yesterday watching fellow human beings get the same previleges I enjoy every day)


I am sorry that many of the rest of your DO take your freedoms for granted, Fortunately/Unfortunately the rest of the world doesn't share your view!)
