"Well, the election in Iraq is now official, and surprise, surprise, Saddam Hussein won with 100% of the vote. That's up from 99.9% last time. Elections in countries ruled by despots seldom have an unpredictable outcome.
To begin with, there were only two choices on the ballot, 'yes' or 'no' for another seven years of Saddam Hussein calling all the shots. Note, too, that voting in Iraq is not exactly by secret ballot. Most voters had to make their 'x's' in plain view of the poll worker, a government functionary and employee of Saddam Hussein. Can you imagine anyone brave enough to actually vote 'no'? The turnout was close to 100% too.
