Bangladesh votes amid violence and boycott
So how long before the "elected" govt of hasina falls?? Usually whenever opposition boycotts the polls, the so called "elected" govt does not complete the full term in bangaldesh.
Wiki is saying more than half of voters need not vote at all as winners have been declared already as there is only one contestant.
I dont think this election will count. there was a rumour that another one will take place on the 24th or something. It looks like BNP are scared of losing and hence are trying to create a situation where they look like the victims of an "RAW-AL" conspiracy.
This kind of election is just wastage of time, money and human lives. I don't understand why Bangladeshis fight so much among themselves when they can peacefully live in their country as they are ethnically and religiously homogeneous nation but, still they get the reasons to fight and kill each other.
So opposition is claiming that democracy is in danger while at the same time opposing election...on this idiotic point alone they must be beaten on the streets.

The minus-one solution - Economist
It seems most of the western media outlets are taking anti-hasina govt stance. This wouldn't be the case if their respective govt's haven't given green signal. Something very fishy here. India should be extra careful.
The economist is the leader of self righteous hypocrites in the western media. They would call AL dictatorial and if BNP ever comes to power they would also call it dictatorial. The only good people according to media thugs of the economists are the ones who jump up and down proclaiming worthlessness of their own culture and grovel before the westerners. The economist and it's kind are the modern version of the colonial newspapers that proclaimed backwardness of natives and a need to "civilize" them by western powers.
West supports fundamentalists, it is a fairly consistent policy of west in most muslim countries and then at the same time preach to others about how liberal they are.
So uncle sam has come out openly against Hasina's govt. So the sharia seeking jamaat-e-islami and usa on same side, now thats a combo.
If the Opposition, notwithstanding that they are disruptive, has boycotted the election, then would it be an election?
Well they have ensured the Muslim world is aflame.
Look at the Middle East!
One more Muslim Nation to fall to the flames!
Absolutely. I just finished reading "The Blood Telegram" - by Gary Bass - a history of the Bangladesh Genocide and later liberation as seen from White House telegrams and tapes (Archer Blood was the US consul in Dhaka, 1970-71). The US could have pressured Yahya to stop the bloodshed - Bengalis were being killed because they won an election. But Nixon and that bastard Kissinger stonewalled and pretended that all was well as millions died. That was because they did not want to upset their lapdog Yahya who was couriering messages to China from Nixon.
So what the US says is not the truth. It is always something that the US will see as an advantage for itself. If the US says the elections are not representative, it means that the elections were fine and the results are fair.
