Indeed. Imagine the impact on the Iranians and their drive for nukes, if they saw us completely united on this and ready as ever to do it again if they gave us cause to do so. They'd roll over in a heartbeat.

Very moving story. I too am very happy for the Iraqi people. I am proud of our courageous President and I am proud of my fellow American soldiers.

May this day be earmarked and remembered forevermore as the time the media, liberals, and Democrats everywhere desperately sought to cut and run! As it was so eloquently said:

"With the exception of a child, freedom is the greatest gift one human being can give another"

Let us thank God for His blessing.

Where's John Kerry?

That little child will never be the same.

Thank you, Casey Sheehan, and all the American and Coalition troops who helped this day happen. A pox on all the defeatists and de facto terror supporters.

It's all because, "cowards cut and run, Marines never do"!

Hello again my friend. Great pictures as always. You're the best!

On this great day I cannot help but think that Washington, Jefferson, & Madison are all smiling down on us. This election is a continuance of the American revolution that they fought so passionately for - FREEDOM, DEMOCRACY, and the INALIENABLE RIGHTS of the individual.

DEATH TO TYRANTS!!

Stay on guard so it won't turn into a Washington State Governor election where Dem's went for a recount which confirmed their election loss.
Low and behold these Dem's forced a second recount and discovered ballots in their Cook County stronghold.
The rest is history:
An unelected Governess resides in Washington State.
Such would be a deadly blow to Democracy and unacceptable in Iraq.

This is the very definition of a clueless cyclist: riding in traffic with no helmet, talking on a cell phone. Not to mention all that red and yellow matching stuff.

But his hair is perfect.

I wonder if Teddy gave the Iranians and their truck drivers some tips on ballot box stuffing.

These Dem's took a body blow when Reagan undid the Soviet Union against their will.
Now comes another body blow by Bush when having an election followed by Democracy in Iraq.
Again a world historic event and Democrats against it while crying and denouncing this on the sidelines.
We shortly will find these antagonists rewriting history again when highlighting their nonexistent contributions.
What better proof of success is there when Dem's are maneuvering for historic inclusion...

Elsewhere, Shiite national assemblyman Jalal Eddin al-Sagheer narrowly missed being struck by a roadside bomb near Latifiyah, and Iraqi police arrested two guerrillas carrying 72 bombs they planned to detonate when polls opened in Iraq's notorious Triangle of Death .

Even with the threat of death or injury, the Iraqis turn out a higher percentage than is usual for American elections. Ain't that a crying shame?

Bush is not telling the truth. This is how he manipulates the public. We are being fed lies. This is a quagmire. This is another, shall I say it, Viet Nam.

The Richmond Times Disgrace has this momentous historical event noted on page A-6. MSM and liberals (same) are in HUGH denial.

John Kerry's wig you mean? That is not 'his' hair.

The Dems had their chance, and only 3 of them decided it was over.
