Observers endorse Afghan election despite complaints

International observers in Afghanistan have endorsed the nation's first, [alleged], democratic election despite, [pre-emptive strikes on the Sovereign Nation, subsequent occupation, genocide, maiming, torture and a puppet government, as well as], irregularities that caused several candidates to boycott the poll. The, [alleged], voter enthusiasm for Saturday's first democratic poll in Afghanistan was, [allegedly], formidable. [?]

Problems with the ink used in polling stations to prevent voters from casting their choice more than once, threw the legitimacy of the election day into question. So much so that 15 candidates, rivals of the incumbent, [US puppet], President Hamid Karzai, declared that they would not honour the election result.

But now some of those candidates are indicating that they will accept the findings of a UN-led investigation.

Further encouragement for the legitimacy of the vote has come from international observer organisations, such as the Organisation for Security Cooperation in Europe, which has labelled the candidate boycott unjustified.

Kerry attacks Bush's Middle East policy
The US Democratic presidential contender, John Kerry, has slammed, [war criminal], President George W Bush's Middle East policy, saying democracy cannot be imposed on foreign nations.

UK report propaganda
Damaged basic services, cover up of key intelligence and prisoner abuse........They got that right but they got the remedy of the report wrong. Sure as hell they're using this as serious "propaganda".

There is no justification for torture
In the weeks since the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison were revealed, evidence continues to seep out of similar mistreatment of prisoners in other US military detention centers in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo Bay.

Rumsfeld had approved abuse
The revelation was in a wad of declassified US documents that also showed President George W. Bush had claimed the right to ignore the Geneva Conventions when dealing with al-Qa'ida and the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Fahrenheit 9/11: Cannes ends in controversy
Moore's film - about the, [war criminal], George Bush presidency and its response to, [US reichstag, call to arms, false flag], 9/11 and the subsequent, [resource], wars in Afghanistan and Iraq - pulls no punches in depicting George W. as a duplicitous buffoon.

Coalition of the Killing's alliance against law 'the wrong way'
Australia and Britain [and the Coalition of the Killing], could have agreed that the [resource], wars on Afghanistan, Iraq, and liberty, the proliferation of Security Housing Units, and Detention Centres, can be addressed unilaterally - a trend in the US that is feared all over the world - but must be faced collectively.
