I think by most accounts, expecially those who wants Iraqi to enjoy the same political freedom and power as in Western (and Eastern) democracies, today's election will be a success. Turn out perhaps is over 70%. As expected, polling stations are lively in Shia and Kurds dominated areas. But is is also remarkeable that there are voters in places like Falluja! Who would have though eh? ;)
Cheers to the Iraqi people for they truly appreciate the value of democracy, risking personal safety inorder to vote.
