Democracy 'imperfect' shock

  • Iraqis "surprisingly"content
  • Please link to Through the Looking Glass (right) to see yet more photos of lovely US soldiers and smiling Iraqis the like of which you never ever see in the MSM. Then link on the above which was buried in the BBC website today presumably because the BBC who conducted this poll were disappointed with the result. After all if the poll had produced the results al- Beeb and presumably other anti war media elements had wanted, this would have superceded the new London smog as the news item of the day. The Independent and Guardian would have been fighting over the best anti Bush headlines (The Independent would have won purely on the cheesy stakes). But no, turns out the Iraqis think democracy is alright after all, shock horror!! So then, the Beeb probes, how ya gonna sort out those nasty 'insurgents' then eh?? Or how about the fact that not everyone is behind the newly formed government eh?? Someone needs to remind al beeb that thats the thing about democracy you aint ever gonna see a full consensus! I guess theyre just scratching around -true to media form -ensuring a negative spin.
