Default Congratulations to the Iraqi People

***THIS IS NOT INTENDED TO BE AN IRAQ-WAR DEBATE THREAD!***


I just wanted to congratulate the Iraqi people for risking their lives to turn out in huge numbers to vote in the first national election since the ousting of Saddam Hussein. As National Review's John O'Sullivan put it:

"The crude objection to it that the Arabs are either hostile to democracy, or even merely indifferent to it, has been decisively routed by the civic bravery of the Iraqi voters."

Good luck with your new free country, you have set a courageous example to the rest of the world, and even to ourselves here in America. If the Iraqi people can go out in vote in droves despite well-known deadly threats to their own safety, surely those of us fortunate to have been born and live in a free country can brave a twenty-minute line to do so!
