    It looks like Iraqis chose against Iran's wishes, Catawba. The 'open list' takes it in the election law.

    Great! After our 6 years of occupation we almost have Iraq back at the point of stability under Saddam, and it only cost tens of thousands of lives and a couple trillion in taxpayer debt, and it all collapses when we stop occupying Iraq.

    Whoopee!

    Pathetic. You would condone Saddam's malicious rule as stability.

    Like it or not, Iraq was more stable and more civilized than most ME countries. Most of Saddam's malicious rule was carried out when we were his ally. That all changed when he kicked the US oil companies out of Iraq and threatened to switch to the Euro.

    When we moved in to establish military control of the region's oil to allow the return of US oil, Iraq was a defenseless country that we had bombed back a century in Gulf War 1 followed by 10 years of sanctions.

    Imperialism plain and simple.

    No....I think we moved in when he invaded Kuwait, the next country we turned to for oil.

    Too bad we didn't learn the lessons from Vietnam.
