IAWM position on Iraqi elections
Today, Iraqis are risking their lives for a second time, voting on the new Iraqi
They brave the head-hunters' knives and bombs (the 'Iraqi resistance', as some IAWM
members call these Sunni jihadists and ex-Baathists). Whether they vote Yes or No,
they are part of a popular and growing, yet fragile, democratisation process - the first
such attempt in Iraq. It may lead to a future stable democracy, or civil war.
Yet, searching this website uncovers little interest in the Iraqi democratisation
process - or indeed of any good news coming out of Iraq (or Afghanistan for that
matter, see thread). Since there appears to be no posts - or even a strategy - on how
(or if) IAWM wants to support democracy in Iraq, one must ask:
(Q) Does IAWM support the majority of Iraqis now willing to risking their lives to vote
in the referendum?
