A - I N F O S N E W S S E R V I C E

As an anarchist, I guess that, call me bias, but I guess
I just don't understand what the Bush Corporation means by
liberating the people of Iraq and placing democracy in its
place. I guess it could just be double talk and be a play
on words, because today in Northern Iraq we saw what
democracy means to the US Forces. The town of Mosul where
the puppet governor (he was placed there by the US), Mashaan
Al-Juburi, was giving a Pro-US speach to a crowd of listeners
when the crowd started to get hostile against the speech.
That is when the US Forces opened fire on the crowd killing
10 to 12 people and wounding at least 100 more. According to
eyewitness, they said that Mashaan Al-Juburi ordered the
troops to shoot. But of course the US Forces said that they
were shot at first. According to eyewitnesses they said no
one shot at the troops. Well, the democracy is off to a
"great" start. Now that we "know" that it comes at the end
of a barrel of a gun. This is not democracy, this is
corporate tyrany. We need real direct-democracy, bottom up,
not top-down.
