JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: THE AFGHANISTAN ELECTION NEWS REPRESENTS NO NEWS AT ALL   Leave a comment

POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

Nearly half the votes are counted?

We get almost no reports on the actual turnout of voters, nor do we get much information on what seems to have been very corrupt election management.

I suspect the U.S. is working hard to control the information that tells the real election story.

Fifty percent of, say, a ten-percent turnout, plus heavy corruption, makes an utterly meaningless election.

Afghanistan after more than seven years of occupation and force-fed institutions is no more democratic than Cuba.
