A Democracy of Puppets (Iraq)
[col. writ. 3/5/10] (c) '10 Mumia Abu-Jamal
No matter which way the Iraqi elections turn out, the media bleats about 'democracy's triumph. Not-withstanding, the lives of average Iraqis will remain an intolerable brew of nastiness and ugliness.
The electricity remains a one hour on, 12 hour off affair.
Water is often undrinkable.
According to a recent BBC report, medical officials now counsel child-bearing aged women in Fallujah to not give birth, for fear of horrific birth defects.
That's because Fallujah's water was poisoned by the U.S. use of depleted uranium in shells when they virtually leveled the place several years ago.
Over a million Iraqi refugees have spent of 7 years in neighboring countries, unable, or unwilling to return home.
Iraqis call the U.S. invasion and occupation al-suqut: 'the collapse.' It is a time of destruction, desolation, humiliation and loss.
Will an American style election change this? Hardly.
Who doubts that only U.S. approved puppets will be allowed to run the joint? How can a nation that violated the democratic rights of the American people to wage a war built on lies, build a democracy in another country?
It can have elections. But democracy? I don't think so.

"When a cause comes along and you know in your bones that it is
just, yet refuse to defend it--at that moment you begin to die.
And I have never seen so many corpses walking around talking about
justice." - Mumia Abu-Jamal
