Voters in Iraq

This photo from the WaPo illustrates the success of the elections in most of Iraq.

Powerline quotes this from Reuters:

Samir Hassan, 32, who lost his leg in a car bomb blast in October, was determined to vote. "I would have crawled here if I had to. I don't want terrorists to kill other Iraqis like they tried to kill me. Today I am voting for peace," he said, leaning on his metal crutches, determination in his reddened eyes.

There's a long road ahead, but these are brave people who understand freedom. A pox on all the scoffers, not least the repulsive Robert Fisk!
