Finally, some good news!

The two day death toll for fighting among various political and ethnic groups here in Iraq has reached 100. The skirmishes were touched off when the parliament failed to vote on the new constitution, and everyone began blaming everyone else for problems with the document. But that's to be expected when you have things like political parties, opposition groups, and special interests.

It just goes to prove what I've been saying all along: Despotism is superior to democracy.
