Io triumphe, io triumphe; stronger than the scumbags...

Two good quotes for a historic event...

...The United States has no quarrel with the Iraqi people; they've suffered too long in silent captivity. Liberty for the Iraqi people is a great moral cause, and a great strategic goal. The people of Iraq deserve it; the security of all nations requires it. Free societies do not intimidate through cruelty and conquest, and open societies do not threaten the world with mass murder. The United States supports political and economic liberty in a unified Iraq.

The fact that there wasn�t a major mass casualty of voters, SBVIED in polling centers or assassinations conducted that the foaming mouth reporters could get in the middle of just reinforces how far the Iraqi forces have come and how they are getting stronger than the scumbags. Reporter�s countrywide saturated the area days prior to the elections to hopefully catch the US forces failing. Well to damn bad it didn�t happen so pound sand! You be the judge on just how much coverage there is of the actual elections on the news tomorrow. My bet is that there won�t be much beside some BS doubters or what if this or what if that negative crap on. I know that if there were an unsuccessful election, it would have been nothing but �Breaking News� shots about how we failed. It�s a good day to be an American, stand tall America we helped a country get on its feet today. Semper Fi-Capt B
"It's a good day to be an American." Yes.
