Tribute to the Military

Saturday, October 15, 2005

Iraqi polls have just closed. Slight firefight, but only 3 Iraqi Soldiers dead, 4 (?) injured. Voting continued. The news is outrageous here.

If it goes well in Iraq, that doesn't mean anything to these people. They seem to be consumed with how it will make President Bush look good.

Excuse me, but isn't it the Iraqi people who deserve a big round of appause? Can you stop your bashing for a moment, and comprehend what you have the PRIVILIGE to witness?!

Omar has much good news. I recommend you go to their site, instead of listening to the news here. It is very uplifting! I am so happy for all the Iraqis who desire their freedom, and all our men and women who helped them to achive it! Thank you.

This is a picture of the ballots being counted!

Update: Omar has the turnout levels recorded in all 18 provinces. This is the latest according to the electoral commission press conference.
High= more than 66%
Moderate= 33% - 66%
Low= less than 33%
Duhok: moderate.
Erbil: moderate.
Sulaymania: high.
Mosul: high.
Kirkuk: high.
Diyala: high.
Anbar: unknown.
Baghdad: high.
Babil: high.
Kerbala: high.
Wasit: moderate.
Salahiddin: high.
Al-Muthana: moderate.
Al-Qadisiya: low.
Najaf: high.
Thi Qar: moderate.
Maysan: moderate.
Basra: moderate.
Great job! I pray it is the right turnout for everyone. You have made all of us proud. Thank you.

There is much celebration going on here! This is the first time they feel as if it is the first time they have the opportunity to vote for the type of government they want. What an awesome experience! What an historic time in history. The gunshots are of joy, the loud talking is shouts of cheers, and there is an air of freedom running freely as the votes are being counted. Great job, everyone.

Great post Rosemary! MSM and the libs want freedom to fail.. However, if it does succeed, you better believe that Teddy Kennedy and his boys will try to take credit and do a lot of back lapping.

Thanks goodness for bloggers, boots on the ground and folks like Omar who get the word out. Dan Rather (I am glad he finally retired) and his cronies are still trying to justify their false reporting of the past,

I know. It's tired, though. People now understand this, because they were exposed by...BLOGGERS! lol.

Thank you for your compiments, but they really belong to Omar and Mohammed. I am always checking with them to make sure of the pulse in Iraq. I have a couple/few peeps in Afghanistan that keep me abreast about how the people are really doing. Can't get that from the press!
