#1 I guess these guys need to learn more about democracy. I would gladly let my opposition win the first political office. The odds of the people understanding how things work in the term of the first politician is slim. So they will be wanting his head in one to two years, then you can come in and be the hero, as now thier expatations are lower.

#3 Having just watched Kurdistan TV (KDP satellite channel), it is clear this article is a lie. There was Masud Barzani talking to some general, Hoshyar Zebari talking to some Arab conference, kindergarten graduation. . . the usual. If Masud Barzani had been wounded and if there were violence in the streets of Hewler (Erbil=Arabic), then KTV would have reported it.

At least al-Quds al-Arabi is living up to its usual journalistic standards. The only reason it's tolerated is because it makes al-Jazeera look legitimate.

We'll see this repeated next week in the Turkish media.
