Liberate Iraq? but where's OUR democracy? (english)
21 Mar 2003
How can we give what we don't have???
Nevermind Iraq, where's our democracy???

What I want to know is ,
HOW can a nation whose own democracy has FAILED so utterly bring democracy to Iraq? In the nation that is supposed to be governed by the people for the people, George W. Bush stole the office of president through little brother Jeb's finagling in Florida and dady's supreme court connections, and it went over most people's heads. So how the heck are we going to make sure that Iraq gains a strong, supposedly unshakable democracy -given the lives that are being lost every moment to secure it- when even WE don't have that?
This is ridiculous! We have to drown out the voices of insanity, the mass media war propaganda, the white house war mongers, who are feeding everyone irrational nonesense! Why are the people sitting back and buying it? The poles showed today that over 60% of the country is approving of this war! Have we lost our ability to think clearly, have we lost our common sense?
