Voting In Iraq - A No Win Situation

If you thought voter suppression was bad in Ohio and Florida you haven't seen this article. Chilling warning to Iraqis: Vote and you die
BAGHDAD, Iraq -- The black sedan made its way down Madaris Street, the young men inside tossing leaflets out the window.

"This is a final warning to all of those who plan to participate in the election," the leaflets said. "We vow to wash the streets of Baghdad with the voters' blood."

The pamphlet gets pretty graphic and specific on the blood-letting. Nobody's going to thank us for bringing this brand of democracy to them. And yes, we (the US) did this.
