Iraqis Vote - BBC Despairs

The BBC are in despair due to the US success in providing Iraq with their first free elections in over 30 years.

In an incredible article, Claire Heald, is almost in tears as she describes how Iraqis living in the UK are going to vote, some probably for the first time in their lives. An exercise Claire probably takes for granted.

Look at the BBC headline for a start "Grey day dawns for Iraqi voters". Only the BBC would call such an historic and joyful day "Grey". But it is a grey day for the BBC not the Iraqis, for the US has given Iraq a chance at democracy, something the BBC have been fighting from day one.

Her first paragraph flows from the headline.

Later this month tens of thousands of UK-based Iraqis are expected to vote in the first elections since the fall of Saddam Hussein. But how keen are they to vote and what do they think the future holds?

"First elections since the fall of Saddam"? Gee Claire, care to tell us when, during Saddam's dictatorship, the Iraqis last voted freely? Claire makes this statement twice in the article to reinforce the idea that, before the US screwed everything up, Iraqis held free elections under Saddam.

Well the US may be providing the first opportunity to vote in over 30 years, but I bet you the Iraqis do not want anything to do with these yankee rigged elections, do you? Claire asks, when she asks "How keen are they to vote"?.

And even if you do get to vote for the first time in 30 years in these yankee rigged elections, you really don't have much of a future, now do you Mr Iraqi?

How bleak can Claire paint these elections? Just look at her next two paragraphs.

North London, on a dark, miserable morning hardly seemed right for the "bright new dawn of democracy" for Iraq.

But under grey skies, off a grey road, inside the concrete walls of Wembley Conference Centre exhibition hall 1, the atmosphere was warm enough.


Claire is not describing the local conditions, she is describing her despair at the success of the US and the BBC's loss. In her own words, Claire tells us her feelings about these elections, they "hardly seemed right".

Claire adds a few barbs at the US for good measure.

Instead of rejoicing at Iraq's new freedom, Claire and the BBC can barely hide their despair at the US success in bringing freedom to the Iraqi people.

What a shameful organization.
