To the idiot who said...

By Libby

... in comments that the protests on the streets of Iraq against Maliki's crackdown was a sign of the success of the "new democracy," read this. The Maliki government considers any civil disobedience, peaceful or otherwise, as a crime prosecutable under terrorism laws. I assume the only reason they didn't arrest everyone on the spot is because they were unable to effect a mass arrest of that proportion, even if most of the protesters were unarmed. I don't suppose we'll hear anything from the western press in the event that the organizers are ultimately prosecuted.
