Soldiers Shoot Iraqi ProtestersIraqis got a taste of "democracy and freedom" George W. Bush-style when soldiers shot seven of them, according to the soldiers, 15 of them according to Iraqi sources. (see Arab Times.
Though Bush likes to confuse issues throwing words like "democracy" and "freedom" around, the invasion and occupation of Iraq is a showcase of power for the New World Order. The intention of the rulers is to show that no one can oppose the order.
Back in the States, democracy is in flux. While it is clear that the regime plans to hold on to power no matter what means it needs to employ, it will maintain the illusion of democracy if it can for convenience. But in America, as in the rest of the world, the rulers have no intention of letting anything like an election or the will of the people get in the way of their agenda.
According to The Boston Globe, while George W. allegedly has an "approval rating" of 70 percent, only 49 percent said they were likely to vote for him in 2004. If a credible opposition leader can emerge, he or she could wipe out George W. in the popular vote. This, of course, also requires a voting system that actually reflects the will of the voters and not just that of the Republicans who own, program and control in secret the voting machines.
