Islamic Leaders Win Big in Iraqi Elections
BAGHDAD -- A coalition of Shiite Muslim political parties with ties to Iran won a commanding number of seats in Iraq's Dec. 15 elections, according to preliminary results released today and unofficial numbers gleaned from around the country.
GOI: Isn't Iran on the "axis of evil??" I thought so. Interesting form of "Democracy" that they have going on over there. One dominated by religious political parties. So much for the separation of church and state which is a hallmark of most Democracy's. I guess we should call it a "Theocratic Democracy" then which seems to me to be a "Democracy" in name only. I wonder how many Christian right-wingers would agree that an America dominated and run by Islamic clerics would be a "free Democracy?"
I don't know how much more of this "Democracy" Iraqis' can deal with!
