I’ve never been a fan of the Iraq war; but I’ll aways be a fan of democracy (I agree with Churchill), and there can be no doubt that Sunday’s elections were a huge milestone for democratic progress in the Middle East. (Eeyore complaints withstanding.)
This pic doesn’t say it all; but it does say a lot.
A toast to everybody who helped make it happen.
Here’s the thing: You can’t give a people democracy. They have to take it. We’ll see if the images and enthusiasm of this very inspiring day turn into permanent political change.]]>
