For Those Who Don't Get It

Yesterday, Iraqis went to the polls in the millions and received their badge of courage, the purple finger. In this country, a cloudy day will stop some people from voting but even amid sporadic gunfire and some RPG's, the Iraqis were determined to vote and vote they did.

This is how it will continue. By taking the children along, they learn the freedom of having a say in government. A new generation now lives in freedom.

These happy faces say it all.

Iraq the Model has updates from all across Iraq in his post We got our purple finger!

The men and women in our military service believe in their mission. They are doing a fantastic job and have brought freedom to a people long suppressed by a brutal and murderous dictator. I salute those men and women and I salute the Iraqi people.

I hope this is a major turning point and that all the defeatists and pessimists start realizing that they stand on the wrong side of history if they continue to act as obstructionists to victory.

Sometime I don't think they can see beyond opposing Bush on everything.

Nothing will stop defeatists from whining.
It's just the way they are we just shouldn't pay too much attention to their moobattery.
Well done Iraqis.

The defeatists do tend to whine a bit. The Iraqis are so brave.

I couldn't be happier to see them. As you more or less say Seawitch, congratulations for all those involved for a job well done!

While I'm at it...all of us who have supported Iraq's freedom deserve a slap on the back as well!
