Hope this works, it seems other people have been trying to comment to no avail.

Its great to see the sense of humour of iraqis today, please keep up the jokes!!

WELCOME TO DEMOCRACY! It suck right? Guess thats why I have never voted myself. Put it this way, if the americans elect Bush as its president, what hope is there for the human race?

I would like to see your opinions of what could happen if the US pulls out. It doesn't seem likely in the short run, but opinion in the US is shifting and I would not be surprised.

In particular, all this talk on "insurgents", "freedom fighters", "rebels", "Saddam Loyalists"... in the end I have no idea of what is going in Iraq. It reminds me of Algeria where all the news we would get is about people getting killed and it took years before the news reported that it was a islamists v.s. government troops fight and that in many cases it was not clear who had committed the attrocities.

In any case, I have an impresion that:
1- the military will take over and a new dictator will come into power.
2- the extremists will seize control and possibly shift towards Iran
3- that all hell will break loose and there will be a civil war with any of the 2 above as a result.
4- that the country will break up
5- that it will become a conflict for regional tensions to play themselves - Suni/Shii, extremists, Iran / Syria, etc...

Ofcourse it is probable that the US will not leave as they are too stuborn to take no for an answer and in the end democracy will work for you with a bunch of fat bastards pocketing all the oil revenues...

All I can say is that the US/GB is pretty much alone and that many people in the west have only wanted the best for iraqis ever since the kuwait war.

Take care and good luck.

P.D. why not hook up a couple of car batteries to your laptop, it shouldnt be difficult and if the telephone is like here, it has its own power supply, atleast you will be able to overcome the powercuts.

"All I can say is that the US/GB is pretty much alone and that many people in the west have only wanted the best for iraqis ever since the kuwait war."

And here I almost believed the claim you made that you were American!

Well, maybe not.

I like your taste in music also, Dayez. Are you really that old (like me) or do you just like the classaic? :)

anon, I see you didn't actually claimn you were AMerican, you just made a bunch of blanket statements about how things are in America, and what US public opinion is. My apologies :D

Here's an interesting poll for you:

Survey finds optimism in new Iraq

If you look at the poll you'll see that the Iraqi people have much more confidence in there religious leaders than the government and the UN, and even the peace officers. I don't know if that should be considered optimistic for the future.

Hi Mabus, I left you an apology in the other thread if you want to read it. I think I misunderstood one of your comments.

Anyway, about the poll... yeah, I agree. The poll shows more support for dictatorship than for democracy. What really surprises me about the poll, is that more than half of Iraqis thing their lives are "good" now. That's not the impression I get from over here in the US. Maybe somebody can dig into how the poll was conducted and point out where the pollsters are going wrong? If they are, that is.

I was raised on classic rock. I was born in the mid 80s but absolutely love it. That's a tight list! Where'd you get all those songs from? The 'net?
