Iran Backs Elections

The head of the Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq (SCIRI), Abdelaziz Hakim in Tehran says,

"Elections are a great development and an important factor in retaining Iraq's legal structures, which could pave the way for rulership of the people's will."
Help! I'm drowning in irony!

On the other hand, this statement is packed weird nuance. He seems to be suggesting that elections are something separate from "the rulership of the peoples' will." Oh, well. I'll just take the whole thing at face value and assert that free unfettered elections could do the same for Tehran.

  • CMARR Hi! How are you? Glad your posting again, regarding his highness,
    Hakim seems a bit too interested with this "legal" angle for my liking, not to mention "rulership"!? Sounds too much like "dictatorship", but hey, that's just me.

    humming to the tune of 'do they know it Christmas', but use 21st century in place of Christmas, of course!
    (sarcasm intended)

    What an unwhelming vote of support for a free and democratic Iraq.
