    More evidence Iraq is not as Bush wants us to believe. Rumsfeld has said that more than likely only about 4/5s of the country will be able to vote in the upcoming election. Can we please get our heads out of the sand and call a spade a spade?

    I think they've already announced their intentions to clear out some of these "no-go zones" by December. I doubt there will be many places where voting doesn't occur in January. I think Rumsfield is trying to say that elections will take place regardless, not that he doesn't care if people don't have the chance to vote.

    If more than half of em turn out it'll be a bigger demonstration of democracy than the US. Is it going to be perfect NO. Anyone can go to Iraq right now and find an Iraqi to descibe the situation in a number of ways.

    I think it would be a GREAT idea to have voters gathering under the sniper tower! :poke:

    I think it is very interesting how they say they will clear out the "no-go" zones before the election - but won't do it now. Seems they know there will be a lot of US causualties and they don't want to have that before the election.

    Clarifying or correcting words is not a 'flip flop'. Here's the difference, Kerry gives 2 speeches in 2 days, with 2 opposing positions. Then when called on it, his response: "Both are correct, you don't understand the nuance..."
