Afghanistan Elections....... What Elections ?

A funding shortage and unrest in war-torn Afghanistan have forced authorities to postpone parliamentary polls due in May for four months, an election commission official said Sunday.

The ballot was originally planned for May 22, as required by the Afghan constitution, but will be postponed until September 18, Fazil Ahmad Manawi, a senior commissioner told reporters in Kabul.

The Independent Election Commission made the decision because of “lack of budget, security and uncertainty and logistical challenges,” the official said.

====================

“Funding shortage” – The American government will be suckered into…….. er……… threatened……… um……… asked…….. yeah, that’s it……  The American government will be asked to provide all the money, plus much more.

“Unrest” – George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and YOU will be blamed.

“As required by the Afghan Constitution” – The one in America doesn’t matter, so why should the one in Afghanistan ?

“The Independent Election Commission” – I like that…… Really…… I haven’t laughed that hard in days.

“Logistical challenges” – Not enough guns in-country yet to put at everyone’s heads for the vote to be a completely legitimate win for The Taliban.

………..while the current administration here, their owners and The Left watch and drool over the prospect of ‘postponing’ the elections here.
