Voting Starts Today!

This picture is a kind of statue of liberty, don't you think?

Congratulations to Iraqis around the world on Iraq's first step into the Free World!

Good luck to every voter in Iraq on Sunday, and God be with the candidates, policemen, and National Guardsmen. Now get out and vote.

Also the military wing of The Islamic Front for Resistance says it will not target the elections, voters, or polling stations. Lets see them put their money where their mouth is and PROTECT those places from attack!

When the Presidential elections approach in the U.S., I like to follow the electoral map to get an idea of how it will go. Well, Zeyad has provided something like that. Check it out. Here's one I thought he should have included.

  • Nice post. I have Sunni Arab friends that are not so happy about the elections and I sympathize with them, but I think the voting will go very well, though perhaps not in Mosul, for example. Not many Sunnis will vote, but the Shia and Kurds will be politically super-mature and include them in the Constituion making process anyway. After all, that's what this election is about: making a Constitution.

    All in all, it will be a triumph. But it won't play that way in the media. For them, it's not "Is the glass half empty or half full." They see a glass full of water and wonder if anybody spat in it.

  • Hello CMARII,

    Tomorrow is the big day and I wish you and all genuine Iraq-loving Iraqis strength and bravery to fulfill your life-long ambition and duty to exercise your basic human right to voice your opinion freely by voting. This is what every honest peace-loving progressive-minded Iraqi wants, regardless of their religion or ethnicity or political pursuation.

    On the negative side, there are always those who are miserable, cynical and pesimistic since the liberation (like those bloggers Raed, Khalid and R'bend). This is understandable, as they lost their comfortable status with the collapse of their beloved tyrant Saddam's regime. In any case, if these types had a good brain and a good heart they would wish to participate with their fellow-citizens to build a new democratic Iraq which is good not only for some (esp. Sunnis) but for ALL Iraqis. Their stance against free elections is a good indicator as to their arrogant and selfish make-up, which only sees the fascist Saddamist way 'backward', and which does not even allow the expression of an opposite point of view, let alone power-sharing with others. Hence, even their blogs which do not allow 'comments', are a clear reflection of their narrow-minded dictatorship-loving mentality, because they cannot stomach anyone who may disagree with them. They consider themselves educated people, but the fact is they still live in the dark ages. However, let us remember that in the New Iraq they are free and so they are free to choose to be big-time losers, too. They have lost my respect long time ago.

    Be safe tomorrow and always, CMARII.
    Long live the voice of freedom and democracy in our beloved Iraq despite the sub-humans and terrorists.
