Install, fund and arm another dictator like Saddam. As long as he does what we tell him who gives a shit what he does to the Iraqis?

Yep the iraq's should would like to re-instate another dictator similar to Saddam. I mean Saddam got 99.99% of the vote in his elections. Im sure the whole voting in your own blood while being watched by hundreads of iraq's along with bath party members armed with guns had nothing to do with the vote. Beacuse as always the first thing that comes into my mind when i think about what i want my new leaders to represent is opression.

no no, democracy means "the american way", which means, regardless of what the iraqis want, they will have to submit to the awesome power of king bush II.  That's american-style democracy.  Just like when bush asked what we wanted regarding the war and we told him and he said something along the lines of "isn't democracy great?  all these people are free to express their opinions (and i don't have to care what they think)"  woohoo united we stand and all that.  :razz:

That's not going to be a problem. They have lots of experience with such situations. CIA easily prevented leftish to win the democratic elections in Italy after the WWII.

I doubt the Iraqis will enjoy this too much as a secular ideal will follow a U.S. installed democracy.

rofl they SAY they're going to give it a democratic government, but what they'll do it put in a same type of system we have here, where the whole place will be run by large businesses and old greedy politicians who still owe many people many favors.

that's ONE thing that could happen, anyway.

edit: lol changed "democracit" to "democratic"


--------------------
Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.
