Baghdad Burning

There is "an open letter of sorts to Americans" about the elections from "Girl Blog from Iraq".

It reminded me of a Portuguese friend of mine telling an American friend that she thought that everyone should have a vote in the American elections because we will all be so affected by the results. He ruminated on how that would be an alien idea to most people in the US. He wasn't aware of the international surveys which, among other things, asked who people would prefer to see win the US elections.

Not having a vote for the President or Prime Minister in any country, I feel frustrated. Not having any say in the elections of a country whose results mean so much for world peace and for the lives of individuals now and in the future, I feel helpless.
