Democracy Quiz

Which of the people's legislatures plan to work the whole month of August?

a. Iraq
b. U.S.
c. both Iraq and U.S.
d. neither country

The correct answer is d, which makes sense when one considers the U.S. exported its version of democracy to the Middle East. Is this the model Bremer and company used in setting up Iraq's government?

In a story on appropriations bills CNN said "Congress is expected to recess, as usual, for most of August." It appears their time off is more important than the people's business. Why should Iraqi's feel otherwise?
