Well, the Iraqi elections turned out about as expected for a government run with advice from Republicans:|
Iraq parties unite to reject pollAt best it sounds like we've successfully replaced a secular dictatorship that hated the US oppressed its people with a Theocracy that hates the US and will oppress its people. Not a great deal to show for $300 billion and 30,000 - 100,000+ dead.
Sunni Arab and secular parties in Iraq have united to reject the results of last week's parliamentary elections, saying there was widespread fraud.
Representatives from 35 parties issued a statement threatening to boycott the new parliament if their complaints were not properly investigated.
Iraq's election commission says it has received complaints, but does not think the overall results will be affected.
The final results are expected to be announced at the beginning of January.
