SUICIDE BOMBERS V. SUICIDE VOTERS

January 30, 2005

Greetings Friends,

I bow in respect and awe to the men and women of our people who, armed only with faith and hope are going to the polls under the very real threats of being blown to pieces. These are the real braves; not the miserable creatures of hate who are attacking one of the noblest things that has ever happened to us. Have you ever seen anything like this? Iraq will be O.K. with so many brave people, it will certainly O.K.; I can say no more just now; I am just filled with pride and moved beyond words. People are turning up not only under the present threat to polling stations but also under future threats to themselves and their families; yet they are coming, and keep coming. Behold the Iraqi people; now you know their true metal. We shall never forget the meanness of these bas…s. After this is over there will be no let up, they must be wiped out. It is our duty and the duty of every decent human to make sure this vermin is no more and that no more innocent decent people are victimized.

My condolences to the Great American people for the tragic recent losses of soldiers. The blood of Iraqis and Americans is being shed on the soil of Mesopotamia; a baptism with blood. A baptism of a lasting friendship and alliance, for many years to come, through thick and thin, we shall never forget the brave soldiers fallen while defending our freedom and future.

This is a very hurried message, while we are witnessing something quite extraordinary. I myself have voted and so did members of my family. Thank God for giving us the chance.

Salaam for now

I heard an interesting interview with an Iraqi woman..to para-phrase----she said the people are determined to vote regardless of the danger...people risk death every day just doing ordinary daily things in their lives, so the risk to vote is no greater.

Let the idiot spin it any damn way he wants...even HIS audience will see through this one.

Bottom line: it's a sad day at the DNC.

The obvious truth that the msm didn't mention.

And old baba boxeer will be testifying in congress that it is no democracy when people are inconvenienced enough to walk 45min. or an hour to stand in line for hours for the privilege of deciding their own future.

The MSM is going to go nuts...they wanted so bad to have this election go badly for the Iraqi's and Pres. Bush. Such a shame that the MSM/Dems cannot/will not allow the Iraqi's and their allies to celebrate a victory for Freedom.

Boy, from his lips to God's ears; but I have my concerns.

Hugh Hewitt was broadcasting from a voting location in California Friday. I heard oh, maybe 45-60 minutes of it. He spoke with a number of Iraqi's. Voter after voter said how great it was, how brave the Iraqi's are, how the Iraqi's have sacrificed, how happy they are.

NOT ONE of them (that I heard) said how great President Bush is, or how great the American troops are — until the last one. He did, bless him.

Now, let me say, maybe I missed it. It is a three-hour show. But I heard what I heard. Hugh even asked one about their feelings about American troops staying or leaving, and the answer was in terms of "international coalition."

Now, I don't want to be mean or unfair, but are are some undeniables:

And he has taken a lot of heat for it, internationally and locally, and precious little credit.

I observe it to be a rule that foreign countries who benefit from our largesse as a rule are about as grateful as the ten lepers Jesus healed (read about it: Luke 17:11-19). It doesn't help that modest folks like W are reluctant to toot their own horn, and not great at promotion. So I fear that the knives are already being sharpened among SOME of our newly-liberated friends in Iraq, and choice portions of the collective American back are being targeted.

But then I'm so easily shocked.

The msm did their best not to make a big deal over Iraqis signing their constitution. Wasn't even a lead story.

(what media bias?)

Happy Wiping, with the blessings of every civilized person in the world!!!

My condolences to the Great American people for the tragic recent losses of soldiers. The blood of Iraqis and Americans is being shed on the soil of Mesopotamia; a baptism with blood. A baptism of a lasting friendship and alliance, for many years to come, through thick and thin, we shall never forget the brave soldiers fallen while defending our freedom and future.

I hope the soldiers know these sentiments!

Same happened with the Afghanistan election. They only want to cover what shows America and its partners in Freedom in a bad light.
