Iraqi elections delayed until US backed candidates can win

Iraqi elections cancelled by U.S.

So no elections in Iraq until the US is sure the “right” candidates will win. Meanwhile, former officers in Saddam’s Army are being installed as local governors.

“‘They give us a general,’ said Bahith Sattar, a biology teacher and tribal leader in Samarra who was a candidate for mayor until that election was cancelled last week. ‘First of all, an Iraqi general? They lost the last three wars! They’re not even good generals. And they know nothing about running a city.’”

“You see, George, it’s not the lying and the doctoring of intelligence that has me all upset. It’s that you’ve had control of Iraq for over two months now — and you couldn’t even find the time to plant just a few nukes or vats of nerve gas and at least make it LOOK like you weren’t lying to us.”
