Iraq Is Moving Along

The Iraqis have begun to vote today as reported on the ground by Pajamas Media. Omar writes:

Early in the morning the Iraqis flocked toward the polling centers not caring about some mortars that went down here and there, the kids kept on playing soccer in the empty streets, the mosques-Sunni and Shii-were calling and urging people to vote. There was a little difference in the two calls; while the Sunni were calling the people to vote for the sake of Arab Nationalism the Shia mosques were calling to vote under the Fatwa of Sistani whom being fiercely attacked by al-Jazeera news channel and this made his Fatwa gain more voters.

The carping from the Bush-lied crowd continues. From Mark Steyn's MEANWHILE, BACK IN THE REAL WORLD...:

As I’ve said on many occasions, when it comes to toppling dictators, there’s no such thing as an “illegitimate” rationale. In his obstruction of UN weapons inspectors, Saddam certainly acted as if he had WMD and, in his “trade” missions to Niger (principal exports: uranium, goats, cowpeas and onions), as if he were eager to acquire more. There’s something to be said for taking a chap at his word.

I will repeat that America can be "the cops of the world" if we want to be. This Iraq clean-up will take fewer and fewer men as the government is created today. Then we should take a short break and look around for the next regime to topple. My choice is Syria. It will take very little if we even have to go there. With the Iraqi democracy next door, many of the Muslim regimes may implode before we fill up the battleships.

As Murtha said, 80% of the Iraqis want us out of Iraq. Their vote today is a big step in sending us packing. Congratulations, People Of The Year!

Now, who do we vote for as the Losers of the Year?

Skip March states:

Thank you for forwarding this. The Iraqi's are the example to the world of what courage really is and how important freedom from tyranny is to everyone. Truly remarkable.

From Bill Suda: Hallelujah! i'm truly excited about this. the intensity--but on the positive side--is that same level as my disgust for kelo decision. the extremes of 2005.

Bill is a man of few words. But they are packed with meaning (though very few capital letters).
