Uncivil Rights

A BLOG rife with wit, sarcasm, and the endless joy which comes from taunting the socialistic and unpatriotic liberal left. Logical thoughts and musings ONLY need reply...unless you're really, really funny. You have the Uncivil Right to be an IDIOT. "Give me LIBERTY, or give me DEATH!"

Is there any group more UPBEAT and Positive than the Liberals?

I can't think of a group of individuals more upbeat and positive than liberals. Here are a few heart warming stories on the Iraq elections:

Train wreck of an election

By James Carroll | February 1, 2005

"Iraq is a train wreck. The man who caused it is not in trouble. Tomorrow night he will give his State of the Union speech, and the Washington establishment will applaud him. Tens of thousands of Iraqis are dead. More than 1,400 Americans are dead. An Arab nation is humiliated. Islamic hatred of the West is ignited. The American military is emasculated."

US military is the big threat now

By Thomas Oliphant, Globe Columnist | February 1, 2005

"The biggest threat is not an Iran-style theocracy ruthlessly imposed by the majority Shi'ites and triggering civil war. Nor is the biggest threat the continuing violence and havoc wreaked by a dangerous insurgency. The biggest threat stems from the huge, omnipresent, overwhelming presence of the US military as an occupying force "

Triumph and Tragedy for Iraq
By Robert Fisk

"But of course it is also Iraq's loss and the Shi'ites' loss too - and possibly America's loss. For without that vital minority component, who will believe in the new parliament or the constitution it is supposed to produce or the next government it is supposed to create?

I asked a Sunni Muslim security guard what he thought would be the future of his country.

He had not voted - in many Sunni cities only a third of the polling stations opened - but he had thought a lot about this question.

"You cannot give us 'democracy' just like this. This is one of your Western, foreign dreams," he said. "Before, we had Saddam and he was a cruel man and he treated us cruelly. But what will happen after this election is that you will give us lots of little Saddams."

Elections Are Not Democracy
By Fareed Zakaria

"The United States has essentially stopped trying to build a democratic order in Iraq, and is simply trying to gain stability and legitimacy."

Some Just Voted for Food
By Dahr Jamail

"Ra'ad, 23, said he saw the man who distributed monthly food rations in his district at his polling station. "The food dealer, who I know personally of course, took my name and those of my family who were voting," he said. "Only then did I get my ballot and was allowed to vote."
