Election Time in Iraq
The hour is here. The polls open this weekend. Fox News is reporting jets flying over and 50 caliber fire is ringing out. This all happening as we close in on catching Zarqawi. The people in Iraq face a huge choice this weekend. They have been threatened by the insurgents if they vote. I still believe over 50% will show up to declare freedom at the polls. The sad thing about this election is that even if 80% show up to vote and we catch Zarqawi, it will still not be good enough for the MSM and Boxer-Kennedy and company. They will find fault, cry fraud, kick and scream. I use the 50% number for good reason. After our own election the Democrats cried about almost 50% not supporting him. If 50% vote in Iraq despite being told they and their families would be murdered, you Democrats must lend your ear. If half the registered voters show up, facing death to obtain democracy, what will be your excuse?
I myself wonder at the courage these people have. Most Americans wont go out to vote if it is raining. In Iraq it could be raining bullets. We as Americans, as does the world, have a chance to see democracy being born. Born out of blood, out of tears, and out of sacrifice. If this dream of freedom for Iraq is realized, and democracy is born, America and its allies shall be long remembered. How will Kennedy and Boxer be remembered? France and Germany? The big thing to them is how will Bush be remembered. They want failure in Iraq as much as Zarqawi. Say a prayer tonight for our troops as lives will be lost. Also say a prayer for the people of Iraq who brave the danger to vote. I ask: would you?
