Card-Carrying Iraqis

Via Iraq the Model, here's an online questionnaire to see which Iraqi party most represents your political views—if you were an Iraqi, that is.

My top match turned out to be the Iraqi Communist Party (76%), which is a more random outcome than it seems—most of the questions concern federalism and the like, not who should control the means of production. Interestingly, the ICP seems to be marginally pro-occupation here: it's "neutral" on whether the U.S. should leave after the December election, "neutral" on whether it's okay for Iraqis to resort to American forces for security, and "disagree" with the idea that killing Americans is a legitimate right for Iraqis. It's actually a pretty good way to figure out where each of the parties stand on various issues.
