Iraq: Constitution Approved

Truth Teller says that the constitution passed the stage of obstructed labor. The biggest fraud in the history of Iraq. Don't say the referendum at Saddam time was bigger, NO, although those who vote yes to Saddam were 99.96%, they vote yes because they can vote nothing but yes. In this referendum we vote “No” but the result appeared “Yes”.

Hammorabi says that the only two provinces voted No by more than 66% are Tikrit which is Saddam's birth place and Ramadi which is dominated by the terrorists… This is a real democracy by which the constitution passed.

While Christopher asks: “The real question now will be whether the Sunnis will accept this vote as fair. Saleh Mutlaq of the National Dialogue Council and others have said they defeated the referendum in all four Sunni-majority provinces: Anbar, Diyala, Sulahhadin and Ninevah.”

On the other hand, Omar earlier asked – Polls: can we rely on them? He still have mixed feelings about this poll and the way its results were reported and these feelings drove him to the conclusion that we should neither believe nor entirely discredit the report.
