As this German video shows, today in Germany the Left Party parliamentary group has been excluded from parliament for opposing the Afghan war (where the parliament would vote about today); showing that with signs of the names of Afghan civilian victims of the war.
Apparently, the democratic rights of MP’s in Germany are going the way of those in occupied Afghanistan. Where anti war feminist MP Malalai Joya was banned from parliament for calling her warlord fellow MP’s warlords and haters of women haters of women.

The crisis underscores the fact that if democracy is in practice, governments cannot sham. The will of the people is reflected even in crises as shown by the Dutch example. If the people are anti-war, the government cannot be pro-war.
