I just read a very interesting article posted today by Campbell Brown on MSNBC about the Iraqui elections on Sunday. She has been over there, living with the people, and interviewing them. Her perspective is more direct than I will ever get, but is food for thought. The entire success of the elections at this point hinges 1) on the courage of the polling workers--will they show up to run the elections and 2) same courage for the people. Cars will not be allowed on the streets so people will have to walk to the polls. They are close, but people are afraid.
My own sentiments have me pulling for them to buck up. Not necessarily for Iraqui freedom, although I firmly believe that would be wonderful for the Iraqui's after so many years of tyranny from the Hussains. But more so for my strong support of our troops who have been over there paving the way for this event. Godspeed to them and the Iraqui people. May it be as peaceful as it can be.
