Iraq Election May Yet Be Postponed: Arab Ministers
Violence and boycotts could yet stop promised Iraqi elections going ahead on time, Arab ministers said, despite Baghdad's confident assertion the landmark vote would be held on January 30.
Iraq had somewhat upstaged a major international conference in Egypt on its future by announcing the date for the first post-Saddam Hussein elections a day before the meeting opened.
But not everyone was impressed by its confidence.
Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit, hosting the conference in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh said the meeting would be deciding whether the vote could be held on time, adding that "the question needs to be re-examined".
You got nothing to say about it. Iraq is a sovereign country that sure as fuck doesn't need your permission to hold elections. Who the fuck do you do you think you are?
What these crapgeysers are up to, is trying to encourage the terrorists to keep the heat turned up to prevent the elections going on as scheduled. Well, it ain't gonna work.

Agreed. I hope the Iraqi PM tells them, in suitable diplomatic language of course, to shove it up their ass sideways.
With their right hand.
Now that Porter Goss is in charge, I would like to see Mr. Gheit the beneficiary of the first sanction authorized under the New Management. Might just send a message.
And you mean a sanction as in "Eiger Sanction", not the worthless ones handed out by Kofi "On the take" Annan...
I mean a fucking whacking, with extreme prejudice.
