Afghan elections 2009 – Fraud and intimidation

by Michael Smith (Veshengro)

What else would anyone expect from the likes of Hamid Karzai and his ilk. He is going to try everything to stay in power. We are not talking democracy in a country like Afghanistan. It is not a place where democracy will ever work.

Afghanistan has always been a problem, if we want to put it that way, and is a very fractured place due to the varying tribes and groups of peoples with the Pashtuns, aka the Pathans, having been, due to their warrior nature, being more often than not he dominant group and been running the country.

In a society where tribal links and such count more than anything democracy, as perceived by the West, will never ever work.

Afghanistan is a feudal society and will remain such for many years and more than likely decades to come.

While many observers have great doubts about the 2009 elections in Afghanistan those from the United States and Britain and the European Union are willing to declare Hamid Karzai as the victor, in spite of the many irregularities that have been observed.

Not that that comes as a surprise to this writer for it has been obvious now for months already that the only government the Western powers that have invaded Afghanistan just after 9/11 would entertain is that of Hamid Karzai, who is nothing but a stooge of the Western allies.

Let no one believe any different.

Therefore the preemptive, basically, declaration by the likes of the EU mission and others, of the elections having been basically free and fair so that the status quo can be maintained.

So, British and American soldiers, and some from other countries, are dying for what in that country?

They are there and are dying there because of the ambitions that certain Western governments and government groups have in that country.

Let's face it. Afghanistan is bordering which country to the West? Yes, Iran, and between Iraq and Afghanistan, with the use of some the the -stans that once were part of the Soviet empire those powers basically have Iran surrounded.

Now the question: “when will we see a reason created for an attack on Iran?”

And with this question I shall leave the reader for the moment.
