[casi] Saddam grabs 100 percent of votes

Dear List,

What are your thoughts on this election?

1. Would you say the Iraqis wanted to really vote for him?

2. Was it a fixed election? (100% of those permitted to vote)

3. Was it out of fear that most voted?

4. Was it from lack of choice?

5. What impact do you think this will this have on the US' determination for ousting Saddam?

I look forward to hearing your views on this. I am sure it will be interesting.

"The referendum outcome was never in doubt with the voting process tightly controlled by the 
government and no independent observers or other candidates. Saddam won 99.96 percent in a first 
referendum in 1995.Saddam's supporters had begun celebrating victory shortly after polls opened, 
dancing outside polling stations in the capital and slaughtering sheep".
