I just saw on the CNN that Iraqi insurgents have somehow managed to knock out power to most of Baghdad on the eve of the election. Apparently an electrical power was blown up in the north knocking out water and sewage pumps as well.
This may not be an inconvienence to Iraqi's use to such things but it may be quite demoralizing for Iraqi citizens. Besides, citizens should not have to worry about people blowing up their infrastructure every month or so and right before they go out and vote! Certainly raising more frustration about the dubious origins of this Constitution. That's not a functioning Democracy. Attacks like these undermine the legitamacy and credibility. I certainly will be frustrating to Iraqi citizens who want their lives back to some sense of normal. Something that has been gone since the start of this war.
If the Iraqi government can not even prevent the electricity from being knocked out then how do they EVER hope to defeat this insurgency?!!
