Fraud ... Fraud ... and Fraud

At the days following the election, many people and I are very optimistic that there will be deviation to the political processes instead of armed confrontations. This was because of the easiness and peaceful ballot. But it lasted for no more than two days, then the explosions and the clashes started again. You know why? ... I will tell you … I know.

Seven days since the election, every new day we hear news of frauds in the process of voting. There are more than 1250 claims of illegal and cheating acts during the process of voting. All the cheating are done by the militias of the puppet government, (the Badr militia in the middle and the south and the Peshmerga in the north), both are supported by the current government. Many of the complaint are really serious

At Tuesday 20, they announced primary results of the vote; the results are disappointing to all that shared in the election except the United Iraqi Alliance, and the Kurdish alliance. And since then, the tension come back to Iraq, there are demonstrations daily in many of the Iraqi provinces refusing those results and demanding of rerun the ballot

More than 35 fronts and parties reject the results announced by the Electoral commission, including the list of former premier Iyad Allawi

The government from its side, and to camouflage the chaos, announced an increase in the prices of oil products, The Gasoline, the Kerosene and the Diesel fuels. The increase is varying from 5 to 11 folds.

There are two kind of angry demonstrations one against the election's results and the other against the increase in the prices of the oil products

It seems to a problem with the comments moderation.
I received an e-mail from Mister Ghost saying:

"Dr Truth Teller,
I tried to leave the below comment at your Fraud Fraud...
post, but it kept asking me for a new secret word - there may be
a few glitches in the comments moderation."

The comment:

"What percentage change in the vote, do you think the fraud affected? Nibras
Kazini, the best political analyst in the Iraqi Blogosphere, says the Shia gave
themselves an extra 10 percent
in the south from 75 to 85.

Another factor to conside Doctor TT is perhaps the Sunni population in Iraq
isn't as large as originally estimated, and that is why, the Shia list achieved
such a landslide.
So, it may be a factor of demographics more than voting irregulaties.


Best.
Mister Ghost"

Mister Ghost

I can't think in any numbers or percentages, but the fraud was so extensive to a degree that the number of paper in the ballot in one of the cities was 500000 paper more than the number of registered people. If you consider that about 60-70% of the registered people are going to vote. you can estimate the extent of the fraud.

Another factor to conside Doctor TT is perhaps the Sunni population in Iraq isn't as large as originally estimated, and that is why, the Shia list achieved such a landslide.
So, it may be a factor of demographics more than voting irregulaties.


No, the cause is , in most of Sunni areas, people are prevented from voting either by supplying false lists of names, so when they came to vote they can't found their names and so prevented from voting. or the centers are opened few hour before the closing time and their was no enough time to allow all the people to vote. Some area didn't receive the voting boxes at all.
This happened only in the Sunni areas.

Mosul made the AP news today:

U.S. Cites Improvement in Mosul Security

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20051225/ap_on_re_mi_ea/iraq_mosul_s_story;_ylt=AgakaDg_gWE0dOaNO71WxJOs0NUE;_ylu=X3oDMTA3b3JuZGZhBHNlYwM3MjE-

What should we think of it ?

Rachel in London said...

The US claims of "improvement in Mosul security" is belied by reports of the kidnapping, torture and murder of the president of the students' union, at the University. He had been leading protests about fraud and, after being abducted, made a call on his mobile phone to say that he had been captured by Kurdish peshmerga.

May the Truth teller's God keep him and his family safe.

This will go on until the US is expelled from Iraq. Whenever there is an occupying army, puppets have no reason to negotiate fairly with the other side, because they are backed up by massive fire power. Which leads to more factionalism.

Same thing happened in Northern Ireland, on a smaller scale.

Faisal ... said...

This is really appaling. This is not a fair and democratic election. As if it was moulded to a wanted result.

May Allah be with you and your family.

The current government is not a US puppet government. The only politician that the US has expressed any slight favor towards is Allawi, and he is the one protesting with MARAM, and currently aligned with the major Sunni groups. If anything, the US is trying to establish a sense of balance between the varying interests in Iraq, to prevent civil war, promote stability, which will allow a clean and quick exit from the country. Of course, its much easier to characterize everything you don't like about Iraq as being the result of American conspiracy.

wade said...

Thank you Dr. for keeping us informed about what is actually happening in Iraq. The American media reports range from 1. Iraq is hopeless and American troops should immediately be withdrawn regardless of consequences to 2. Except for security, things are getting better every day etc. etc. etc. You let us know that the truth is somewhere in the middle of theses extremes.
Please know that virtually all Americans whether supportive or against the invasion want nothing but much deserved peace and prosperity for all the people of Iraq and that U.S. troops leave Iraq as soon as possible.
May the God of Abraham bless you, your family and the suffering people of Iraq. Wade in Houston

"The current government is not a US puppet government"
I agree with you, it is not a US puppet government. But it is an Iran puppet government. It is a puppet government any way.

Rachel in London said...

From The Washington Monthly, 29 December 2005:

Kurdish leaders have inserted more than 10,000 of their militia members into Iraqi army divisions in northern Iraq to lay the groundwork to swarm south, seize the oil-rich city of Kirkuk and possibly half of Mosul, Iraq's third-largest city, and secure the borders of an independent Kurdistan.

....The Kurds have readied their troops not only because they've long yearned to establish an independent state but also because their leaders expect Iraq to disintegrate, senior leaders in the Peshmerga — literally, "those who face death" — told Knight Ridder. The Kurds are mostly secular Sunni Muslims, and are ethnically distinct from Arabs.


The comments to that article are interesting too.

of course the current government is a puppet. for one thing, they're well-being is 100% dependent on the US military.

With an occupying army in place, there will never be resolution in Iraq. Not in 5 years, 10, or 50. The reason is that compromise is impossible as long as Hakim and Barzani know they have back-up from the US to militarily crush their opposition (i.e. leveling Fallujah, Ramadi etc etc.)

The US has finally made noises about SCIRI death squads after ignoring it for 9 months, and is attempting to reign in Hakin and Barzani. But those guys won the election, and the US - after trumpeting said elections, is going to be compelled to militarily defend the government.

The ability to independently establish security determines whether a government is sovereign and independent or, dependent, and a puppet. Not press releases, flowery statements, or nonsense from a corrupt Iraqi or US poltician. Or bloggers wishing otherwise or believing those flowery statements.
