So.... Is Iraq going to have elections at the end of next month or not?

I'm guessing not. While Fallujah may be quiet at the moment, there are too many other hotspots popping up across the country. And no sooner do the Americans go in and save the town by leveling it, another insurgency pops up somewhere else. Quite frankly, anyone who seriously continues to believe that the elections will take place on January 30 is living in the Land of Oz.

Incidentally, I heard that a suicide bomber tried to blow up the wizard's palace in Emerald City. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Besides, the way things stand now, even the different groups involved can't agree on whether the elections should be postponed. The Sunnis want to delay it, while the Kurds and Shiites still want them held. Of course, IF the elections are held, and the Sunnis don't participate, they will refuse to recognize the results, and Iraq will slip further into disarray.

But the funniest part about this whole election thing is that now even the Shiites can't agree on what they want to do!!! A number of Shiite dominated political parties have broken off talks with one of their top spiritual leaders, that Al Sistani guy, because they think he's too much of a religious nutcase! One leader even said that "we don't want to be an extension of Iran inside Iraq."

Well, amen to that!

May I offer a compromise to this whole democracy debate? Skip the stupid elections and return me to power. I'm tanned, rested, and ready to straighten out this mess the Americans have made.

Don't take this wrong way, because I really don't give a camel's ass what you think, but I have added a new poll on this very topic. It's on the left side of your stupid infidel computer's screen.
