"Democracy" in Iraq

Iraq bans 14 parties from taking part in their next election. That's the "democracy" that "we" are told "we" fought to create.

Meanwhile, in another "democracy" that the U.S. supports (to the tune of billions every year) in the region, Egypt deported George Galloway and forbade him from ever returning, all for the "crime" of delivering humanitarian supplies to the besieged people of Gaza.

It remains to be seen whether the "free press" in the U.S. will even bother to report either of these developments. You can be sure that, if they do get some kind of mention, they won't be the subject of endless discussion on the talk shows, editorials in the major newspapers, or lectures from politicians.
