For those of my readers who don't understand what we are fighting for in Iraq, here is one reason.
It's also proof of tremendous progress, although you won't hear much about it from the MSM and it will be downplayed by leftist Democrats. Seventy percent turnout? When there is the threat of being bombed? Hell, we can't get half that and some Americans won't vote just because it is raining.
And it was a joint effort with all the various factions voting, including the Sunnis who boycotted the last election. Again progress.
There is still much to be done, but we are on our way to victory and we must continue our support for this burgeoning democracy.
