"Please state if you think that the electorate voted on political, or religious/ ethnic lines."

Now I know you're not dim Mr T, so I take it you're acting the c**t.
The operative word in that sentense is (((or))).
You and I both know that no matter how many people vote, if they have no choice it is not democracy. These people were voting for power to their religious/ ethnic group and in a way that is democracy of sorts....only problem is, the minorities are not represented at all....and.....   in this case, it is not the sort of democracy which suits the West, hense the American support for the Sunni death squads.

Before long, the status quo will be resumed, the Shia will be persecuted, the Sunni's will have all the power and Uncle Sam will be wearing Saddam's Trilby....Ake
