    * NOTE that the countdown notice has been amended to qualify the Election as " Scheduled " to give emphasis to the tenuous state of political / constitutional affairs in Iraq in recent days and specifically the mention in the news of a possible delay in the election due to the Anbar diaspora. Democracy is a device that insures one shall be governed no better than one deserves, paraphrasing George Bernard Shaw. And what of democracy in the eyes and words of others over time ?

    - Plato said, " Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty. " ; and,

    - Mahatma Gandhi said, " The spirit of democracy is not a mechanical thing to be adjusted by abolition of forms. It requires change of heart. " ; and,

    - Charles Bukowski said, " The difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that in a democracy you vote first and take orders later; in a dictatorship you don't have to waste your time voting." ;and,

    - John Adams said, " Democracy... while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide." ; and,

    - Charles W. Pickering said, " A healthy democracy requires a decent society; it requires that we are honorable, generous, tolerant and respectful." ; and,

    - Bob Dylan said, " Democracy don't rule the world, You'd better get that in your head; This world is ruled by violence, But I guess that's better left unsaid." ; and,

    - Noam Chomsky said, " Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state." ; and,

    - Orson Welles said, " In Italy, for 30 years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love, they had 500 years of democracy and peace - and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." ; and,

    - Tom Stoppard said, " It's not the voting that's democracy; it's the counting." ; and,

    He has published the official website of the Kurdistan Regional Government yesterday issued a statement confirmed that the President of the Region «Depending on the views of many jurists who consulted make sure that the issue of conversion of Halabja to the province of the issue lies within the loop of administrative powers to the Kurdistan region of Iraq, and the lack of any response by Baghdad on the subject, and the student (regional president) Government of the Territory to begin quickly to take administrative action to raise the administrative level of Halabja, at the request of the masses of the city ».

    Halabja has seen in the past few weeks «a lot of demonstrations that gave the KRG until the sixteenth of March of this year to make the decision to nominate a fourth province of Halabja within the region».


    The decision by the Presidium of the region «coincided with a speech delivered by Barzani during the reception of the remains of 93 Manfela of Albarzanyen, where it was brought in from the deserts Busayyah in the province of Samawah in southern Iraq to Irbil to be buried in a prominent stronghold of the president of the province, where in which he stressed that the position of the region and the response to what The Iraqi government is doing against him would not be expected, which led to the belief that Barzani has taken the first step in the implementation of what he said in response to Baghdad ».

    The MP from the list of the Kurdistan Democratic Party in the Parliament of the region Nouri Hama Ali «that this position by Barzani underscores the seriousness in solving the problems that continue to Baghdad in the stall and play the card of time on them, especially that it has not fulfilled its promises made to the region with regard to this topic» .

    And between Ali told the «Middle East» that attempts by the Iraqi government and Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki personally to delay or disable this decision «comes in a campaign carried out by the latter in order to spread the spirit of hostility between the masses of Halabja and the political leadership of the region, especially the KDP».

    Ali said that the actions of Baghdad «that prompted the head of the region to instruct the government to work to raise the administrative level for this city without reference to Baghdad, which if awaited long when carried out any of its promises, while it is considered primarily responsible legally resolve all the problems of this city and a lot of cities suffered genocide at the time of the previous legal heir of the previous government ».

    Has been Halabja in the sixteenth of March 1988 bombing of chemical weapons by the former Iraqi regime, which led to the deaths of more than 5,000 people and injured thousands is no hope of their respective owners in the treatment, was confirmed by Barzani in more than a meeting with the people of the region and in his journalistic Halabja is the key (luck) of the Kurdish people and that opened the doors of the world to learn about the tragedies suffered by the people ».

    He declined MP for the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) in the Parliament of the region Salar Mahmoud «resolve the outstanding issues between Baghdad and the region through escalation or reactions to the fact that this method will not be in the interest of the region».

    He explained Mahmoud said that «many of the participants gathered between the Territory and the federal government can not neglect some of the issues at the expense of other issues, refusing to be a matter of taking Halabja province by province only one of the reactions followed by the Kurdistan region against Baghdad, stressing that all unilateral decision of the region will give an opportunity to the intransigence of Baghdad more ».

    He called on the region to take Mahmoud fateful decisions «consultation between all parties and not taken by one party». He denied that there will be no competition between the political party and the Kurdistan Democratic Party on the issue of Halabja and stressing that «the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) has a strength and weight to the level of Iraq has national initiatives».
