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".

Wait, you mean the vast majority of the population got out and voted in spite of the doom and gloom prognostications from the LWNJ's like Duhnise? Fancy that.......

Even left leaning Cokie Roberts this morning on the ABC Sunday news program said Americans should be ashamed of how we take voting for granted when it comes to the example Iraqis showed us today.

She said Americans just need to roll out of bed to vote when the Iraqis had to risk their lives. For once I agree with her.

Holy crap. Dan Rather just said the limited amount of terrorist activity on election day might indicate the insurgents are on the run.

It was just announced that a polling place in Southern Iraq had to be closed. So the resisdents in that area walked 13 miles to the next closest poll. Walking 13 miles!! Incredible. They had pictures and it wasn't just a few, it appeared as if there were hundreds. I'd say that represents a burning desire and points to the hope that the population has. How can we not help?

Better get Keith Olberman over there to investigate the voter fraud ASAP.

At any rate, 72 percent voting, that's great to hear.

I saw some really neat footage of Iraqis voting on the news yesterday, a lot of them were crying, putting their ballot in the box.

Reminds you of how spoiled we are in the greatest country in the world.

The thought that ran through my mind was that the insurgency was not quite as big and bold as we are led to believe by the media.

And...

Where is Ted 'bubbles' Kennedy? I thought he went on a big tirade about how the elections had to be pushed back, that they couldn't be held yet and would be a disaster if not postponed?

Also I would like to point out that the actual numbers of voters is going to be less than 72%. If I have heard correctly the numbers in a few precincts was as high as 72% and some as low as 4%.

However the numbers will be fairly strong but closer to the 50% or slightly less.

But damn good job for our troops and the Iraqi people that threw the big Fug you to the terrorists.!

The mostly Shiite South estimates are around 90%

Kurdish region is also nearing 90%. Bahgdad is hovering at around 70%.


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....
