Democracy In Iraq

15 Million Iraqis have given the finger to the terrorists by voting in the first full-term parliament in the new Iraq.

In America, our own voter turnout is shameful compared to those Iraqis who braved death to cast their vote.

Although there were a few disturbances they were minimal, and many were thwarted by an increasingly effective Iraqi Security Force.

More than 1,000 Sunni clerics called on their followers to vote, and Iraqi nationalist terrorists groups pledged not to attack polling stations.

"This is the day to get our revenge on Saddam," said Kurdish voter Chiman Saleh, a Kirkuk housewife who said two of her brothers were killed by sadams regime.

Today we saw the birth of a nation. I salute all those who showed their bravery and voted. I applaud those who gave terrorism the finger.
