More Iraq News!

I found this article while browsing through Milt Rosenberg's blog.

All of the election news out of Iraq has been so interesting. I just think it is so amazing that in a country where we have been able to have the opportunity to vote without the threat of being killed, without standing in line for hours, without walking or riding for miles and miles, and without the task of trying learn about our candidates in such a short amount of time, we take it all for granted and only half of us vote. Yet, in a country where they are under the threat of death - DEATH, they still had 72% of the eligible voters vote. Even higher in some areas.

While this article is intended to show what a success this past weekend was in Iraq, I think it also says a lot about our country.
