Iraq's 1st Dot?

Democrazy fans worldwide wait out for the final results of Iraq's crunk and disorderly elections (in a good way!) that act out as a harbinger of a fun, free Middle East instead of the same o same o corrupt, unelected and illegit 'leaders' that lose every war, provide nearly zero services for their people and possess literacy rates from the embarrassing to the the pitiful.

Sexy Beast scored a killer Iview with Sara Allawi, daughter of former Prime Minister Ayad Allawi—the popular, secular, leader who is running to reclaim his old job.

And Iraq's possible next 1st Daughter shares some hot! gossip, visions and insights:

Like her papa's desire for a functional democracy based on egalitarianism instead of Medieval sectarian shiz:

"Our vision, his vision, would be to have the next government based on national unity and a coalition that included all groups, so no group feels ostracized. Really, I’m not sure if he will become prime minister. But I think Iraq has no other choice but to have a government based on national unity and to move away from sectarianism.

"So far, only our party has shown this approach. We’ll have to take that direction. If we don’t, Iraq will spiral into disaster. The tensions will be exacerbated. They could engulf Iraq and spread over to the other regions. It’s the approach that has to be taken to save Iraq.

The wild rumors that her dad executed 'foreign wahabbi' terrorists has been reported like this:

"The prisoners were against the wall and we were standing in the courtyard when the Interior Minister said that he would like to kill them all on the spot. Allawi said that they deserved worse than death - but then he pulled the pistol from his belt and started shooting them.

"He was very close. Each was shot in the head."

Sara reveals:

"I asked my dad about it, and he started laughing. I don’t think it’s true. I don’t think my dad would bring himself to do something like that. But I’ve read articles—I’m not saying he has done it—but I’ve read articles that have said perhaps this isn’t such a bad thing, if he did."

Growing up in London when S'Ddam exiled her folks, Sara admits she has always been hot for coups, regime changes and top secret stuff:

"When I was about 8 years old, I would go to my father’s office in London while he was in the opposition. I would plan how we would topple Saddam’s regime! He used to have maps of his palaces, and Baghdad, and I would say we should get this many soldiers and go there.

"I even labeled it my own “secret file,” as if that wouldn’t tempt anyone to look into it.
