Yet, despite all that, I don't want to rant about the Republicans today. Instead, I just want to wish the people of Iraq luck in today's vote. I didn't agree with the decision to go to war in Iraq, and I am disgusted by much of our conduct since the invasion. However, despite the unfortunate events that brought it about, I hope that what emerges is a stable, healthy government with which the Iraqi people are happy. I know that if this happens, Bush and the other Republicans will claim it as a vindication of their policies, and it may spell defeat for Democrats in the upcoming elections. Yet, still, I think such a trade would be a worthy one.
Good luck Iraq. I hope your elections are fair, and your future is more secure than your present.
