Iraq elections about done.

There's about half an hour before the polls close and Freedoms winds in Iraq blew strong. The latest numbers indicate 72 percent of the population voted. Think about that. Here in america if we get 60 percent it's considered a high turn out. Normally only 40 to 50 percent of america votes in any election. And as those people vote who do they see? Iraq Security forces, not american. That has to have an effect. I can't help but feel a sense of optimism over the future of not only Iraq but of the Middle East as a whole. And do believe in the long run this country will be safer and we are seeing the decline of terrorism as a global force. It'll be interesting to hear over the next few days how people spin this. Especially those, to borrow a line from the movie "The American President", "People who say they love america but obviously can't stand americans".

Now Kerry is running his mouth about how the election isn't the important part. And...umm...welll....uhh... the Sunnis aren't voting and ummm.... :rolleyes:
The hell with them... they had a chance to vote. If they didn't use it they can STFD and STFU.

Just like in the US, if you don't vote you don't have a right to complain.

Next thing you know it'll be "they (Sunnis) were 'intimidated'.... the US troops made sure they wouldn't vote".

You know, take a page right out of the 'ol dem playbook.

Just makes you wonder how motivated the insurgents will be after this.

Who cares what the left wing wackos think. Kerry is irrelevant now anyway. They should monitor Kennedy closely today though, his head might turn so red that he'll have steam coming out his ears and run the risk of exploding.

Blah, blah, blah...Although that pretty much is the only comeback the Dems have after having their party at its most unified, their bank accounts at their fullest and still whiffing on every level of the most recent elections.

For one I appreciate the fact that they think they need to fight harder...just makes them look stoopider.

John Zogby was just on Fox News saying that because the 72% figure wasn't reached he's not entirely sure that a majority of Iraqis voted and everyone should be cautioned against "irrational exuberance".

Makes you question why so many Arab leaders are so quick to highlight the flaws of the democratic process rather than spotlight the fact that a group of Arabs/Muslims are determining their own fate. It's almost like they're embarrassed that it took the help of an infidel to pull them out of the dark ages.

Of course Zogby's reluctance to embrace the results could have something to do with his polling that indicated only about 40% of Iraqi's would vote.

CBS reported a 60% turnout which still makes our voter turnout pathetic in comparison. Yes Mr. Zogby, we should guard against overexuberance......

Excellent speech by Bush - "We congratulate the people of Iraq". Succinct.
