Iraq of Tomorrow Makes an Endorsement

|

An amused (but pleased) Arab reader points us to today's edition of the online Iraqi newspaper Iraq of Tomorrow. This is an Arabic-language site, and is unreservedly pro-Bush. How pro-Bush? Well, go here for the site's coverage of Iraqi reaction to the election. The headline above the picture of Bush and Kerry reads: "Iraqis are for Bush and Fallujah is for Kerry." (Actually, Iraqi opinion polls done earlier this year found that while most Iraqis would state no preference regarding the U.S. election, Baghdad's educated middle class strongly favored Bush.) For other opinions about the election from Iraq and elsewhere in the Arab world, go here.

  1. “(Actually, Iraqi opinion polls done earlier this year found that while most Iraqis would state no preference regarding the U.S. election, Baghdad’s educated middle class strongly favored Bush.)”

    Among the minority who expressed a preference, Kerry beat Bush by double digits. But you’d never know it from this post. Far more important than how the country feels is how the right people in that country feel.

    I wonder, do conservatives have a word for when their economic elitism and their foreign policy hawkishness come into perfect alignment?

  2. Charles,

    The article you mentioned talks about reactions of Iraqi-Americans in San Diego, not Iraqis in Iraq. The article does not have any poll numbers just the opinion of the reporter…. He referted to Iraqi-American who favor Kerry as the “Falluja representatives”.

    Not sure what is your point?

  3. A poll of Iraqi-Americans in San Diego would be interesting if you were, say, interested in the opinion of the Chalabi Contingent as it regards the bombing, invasion and occupation of Iraq.

    As I recently commented, there were people on the ground in World War II who supported their own fire bombing; however, Iraqi-Americans in San Diego probably don’t fall into that category.
