Small? I don't think so. Huge! And from the rhetoric and acts of desperation by the terrorists it's obviously cramping their style. The battle isn't over, but the terrorists and tyrants are watching the writing appear on the wall. And they are terrified.

I've been looking for that freedom spread that Shrubbie has been talking about. I can't seem to find it in the peanut butter isle at the grocery store. Is it somewhere else? Is it a dairy product? Maybe I've got it all wrong and it's something for the garden and it's with the other fertilizers? ;) :D
You can't buy it with food stamps.

I'm glad they got the opportunity to vote for the leader of their choice. I don't believe the violence is going to stop as a result of it though.

Reckon we could get that purple finger thing going here in the states?
I would gladly purple my finger for the sake of making the inner city graft machine break down.

Truly images of Hope. May they finally find hope and comfort, it's the least for which we (and they) can hope. As to can we expect, that, I'm afraid, may be another matter if expectations are done in upon artificial boundaries.
But those faces, the joy, the ecstacy. May their success not be denied. (Is there a suitable face, a hopeful, prayerful face (or emoticon) to go here...)

"freedom" is "anarchy."
They gave up "freedom" and accepted "laws" to reduce "anarchy" to "order."
Time will tell who gave up the most.

I will never understand the gutteral contempt for freedom that some folks freely express.

I am quite happy that the elections in Iraq appear to be a sucess. Hopefully they will be able to somehow include the Sunits in the democratisation process.

I truly wish them luck !! smile.gif

Pray for them, Pray for our boys, who now have to pick up and delivery the ballot boxes to where ever ballot boxes need to go,
PRAY FOR PEACE!
The images are truly remarkable, and I hope that this is a right step in bringing stability to Iraq and to the entire region and to the world at large!

There is no turning back. There will be problems and stumbling blocks as there were in out own young democracy, including the 2nd war of independence - which was lost by the South and resulted in a united country.
However, they have tasted freedom and found it to their liking. There is no turning back.
Those who find no pleasure in this are not fans of President Bush and do not wish him to succeed whatever the cost to Iraqis or anyone else.

I find pleasure in it and I'm definately not "a fan." :D

Not talking about you, Mike - or any others who don't care for the President, but are pleased at the progress for the Iraqis. smile.gif
I'm talking about those who can not find it in themselves to rejoice over this triumph of the Iraqi people over the terrorists who seek to enslave them. There seem to be a lot of people who find no pleasure in this historic moment and those people seem to be so anti-Bush they can't bear the thought of any success that redounds to him and his policies. They would rather see horrific failure in Iraq than for President Bush to be given ANY credit for having helped achieve even a modicum of success.
