Bull****. You are applying western notions to an Islamic Democracy. It does NOT invalidate Iraq's Democracy as a model to other Islamic countries.If its democracy is not formed from a secular and moderate viewpoint, how can you possibly say it is a model democracy? Without these basic principles, how can the Iraqi Democracy ever mature to a level that is acceptable and that respects the rights of all man?
Not incomparable. You are setting an unachievable standard for a 5 year old Democracy. 7 years ago it was a despicable, I mean truly despicable, dictatorship. Now it is a Democracy doing very well. Yes, there is still a long way to go, but as young as it is, it inspires Democracy through the Arab world. You keep claiming it does not and you are simply wrong.Nothing to the extent of the US. Incomparable even.
Prove it is censored. Not an anecdotal example of singular censorship, but broad consistent censorship.Your judging a successful Democracy on the amount of newspapers there are in Iraq and the amount of political parties, which according to you, is evidence of free speech - a poor argument indeed. Media is censored just like it is in Jordan or Egypt and political dissent is handled just like it is in any other part of the Arab world. So how does it stand out? It doesnt.
I am not looking through 1446 ****ing posts to find your weak-assed evidence. If you want me to take your point seriously, you will repost your evidence.Please feel free to view our previous discussions.
Not at all, I know I am right. The Bush Democracy Agenda (Riots erupt in Egypt as protesters demand end to Mubarak regime) is completely 10,000% vindicated with current events. Current events have the democratization of Iraq as both a model and an inspiration for what they are now about.You may feel cornered or intimidated by me or whatever it is going through your mind right now, but there really is no need.
