Nothing resolved by Iraqi elections
Bush and Blair have been quick to hail the elections in Iraq as a "victory for democracy" and a vindication of their brutal occupation of Iraq, but this was largely for public consumption. Editorial from The Socialist, Feb. 5th 2005.
They know that in reality not a single issue has been resolved by the Iraqi elections.

A western-style democracy, with all its restrictions, is not even on offer to the people of Iraq. How can any democratic election take place under the guns of a foreign occupation force? All that imperialism offers the Iraqi people is continued bloodshed, suffering and the looting of Iraq's economic resources.
