  • “Iraq election may yet be postponed”

    Posted by Jonathan on November 22nd, 2004 (All posts by )

    So say the foreign ministers of Egypt and Jordan (via Drudge). Sounds like wishful thinking on their part.

    Given who the messengers are, the message I am taking from all this is that the sooner Iraq holds elections, the better. The worst thing we could do would be to reward terrorists and non-democratic Arab regimes by postponing the election. It would be nice if Iraq could even advance the scheduled date, just to make its enemies squirm. For dictatorships, violence is just another business tool but elections are terrifying.

    Bring on the elections in Iraq and elsewhere.

      _ non-democratic Arab regimes_

      Which Arab regime do you deem to be democratic?

      Well, Iraq is becoming one (I hope).

      Elections in Afghanistan in 2004, Iraq in 2005,…maybe Iran in 2006?

      That would be great!
