Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 17 years ago, in 2006, on the World Wide Web.
You know, I hear people say,Well, civil war this, civil war that.The Iraqi people decided against civil war when they went to the ballot box. And a unity government is working to respond to the will of the people.
Well, then, good to hear that’s been cleared up.
Maybe next we can all have a vote on the nuclear arms race, or perhaps the Second Coming of Jesus.

What an idiot. Voting does not matter without safety and security. Iraq has neither.
