Good for the Iraqi people!


GM Votes for the Iraqi People. Care to Join Me?

Is it possible to trade ALL the Democratic Party(except Joe and a handful of others) to Iraq in exchange for a selection of the courageous people who will get out to vote tomorrow in Baghdad ?

Perhaps we could sweeten the deal by throwing in a Hollywood Celebrity to be 'named later.

I would hate to do this to the Iraqis, but there have to be some perks attached to being a superpower. And I would pay very good money to see Nancy Pelosi telling Al-Sadr that he didn't respect women adequately, that he had to 'dialogue' with the Baathists,and that he needed a better 'plan'.

Crossing my fingers for a peaceful election AND a defeat for the Islamist Alliance.

Go Allawi.

What has been done so far is bloody amazing. What lies ahead, I do not know, but am delighted we have leaders and a military that are world class in so many ways.

The bravery of the Iraqis will be the thing that makes this whole enterprise in their country work, or not.

If it works, imagine what message it will send to others!


1. A reported 100,000 plus Lebanese demonstrated again against the Syrians.

2. The President of Iran said The Holocaust is a myth.

3. More and more terrorist cells are being rounded up in far away places with strange sounding names.

4. In some ways, the times in which we live remind me of the opening line of The Tale of Two Cities.

Semper Fidelis

tad, definitely a strange convergence of minds. Just two minutes ago I posted on another site the opening lines to the Tale of Two Cities (It was the best of times; it was the worst of times)...but I was thinking of holidays. Then I came here. In any case, Merry Christmas to you!

When I heard that truckloads of phony ballots were coming into Iraq, I thought that the Democrats had landed.

Civil Thruth,

And a Merry Christmas to you! Despite all sorts of nitwits, dunderheads and out-right enemies of America, we will prevail.

BTW, "CT" (and I DON'T mean ANYTHING negative towards just popped up in my mind) stood for something during the Emergency in Malaya. Now called Malayasia, the Brits did some very clever things there to slam down terrorism before they left. They didn't cut and run.

I am no longer amazed at the number of "experts" that know little to nothing about the SAS, the Long Range Desert Group, Popski's Private Army, how the Israeli Army is organized and trained, the partisans operating behind German lines in WW II (some did so with great success, and some were mostly ineffectual). Ah, history...the teacher of our past.

Woody, at cooper's blog you said that CNN wasn't cheerleading for the elections in Iraq. I'm surprised you'd say that, I don't see any critics from the left discussing the elections at CNN, do you? I see Anderson Cooper and Nick Robertson loyally playing embedded reporters and relaying the military's perspective on the elections, no?

Hey, steve. I've gotten mixed signals from CNN on the Iraqi vote, but I still believe that the great majority of what they report on the subject is negative and/or inaccurate to the benefit of the left. Part of our differences is that what's right to you is still left to me, and probably vice-versa. I remember Anderson Cooper covering New Orleans with his outrage, and then I found that it was scripted by the higher-ups. After that, I don't trust him on anything.

That's not terribly convincing, over at FOX they were just as harsh, if not harsher. Look at David Brooks at NYT for that matter.
Fact is they were and are always excited about the elections happening in Iraq as a 'major' step forward...Why wouldn't a major capitalist media organ do otherwise?

Posted by steve at December 20, 2005 09:16 PM

steve, don't confuse ownership of an organization, for which profit is the primary the motive, with the product of the company, which may not necessarily agree politically with the owners. Investors look at short-term profits and don't care about long-term issues from opposing editiorials. I know people who don't smoke and don't like smokers around them, but they gladly take their quarterly dividends from the tobacco companies.

hmmm, I"m still waiting for examples of left wing reporting on Iraq from CNN. Seems to me it's pretty much within the corporate spectrum of views on what should be done about Iraq. And at crucial moments, like the 'elections' they have , CNN and FOX are virtually indistinguishable. I don't think the generals at Command Central News will let ya down, really.
I don't confuse those matters you raise though. I acknowledge that there is variety within a corporation. But the corporation places real limits on frames and they will invariably serve the interests of capitalism and the state.
BTW, check out the NYT editorial on the big strike today. Those are left wing editors, eh?
