Freedom's a remarkable thing ain't it?

Looks that way, the people want freedom, and the terrorist didn't launch the large scale offensives they promised. Perhaps they're weak now, but I don't have enough optimism that they're about to die out. I feel we will be in Iraq for a good while yet.

If that's what it takes to get the job done, I'll bow my head in acceptance. Though if the conflicts are prolonged, I imagine the American and Iraqi people will tire of our presence.

Though hopefully I'm wrong, and the aggression will fade out and Iraq will quick develop into a democracy, free of terrorism.

I don't know, I don't have a crystal ball. But whatever comes, at this point in time, you can't help but give the Iraqi people a strong salute.

when there is a democratic government and capable Iraqi security troop....the insurgents will slowly disappear or fade away i think..


after all.....who are their bombs killing every day??? aren't most of victims are Iraqis???? do u think Iraqis like those "mask-covered" basterds??

no, the strong turn out shows that Iraqis dont want Insurgents..they want a stable and democratic government of their own.

Only very rarely do elected governments turn into dictatorships. Hitler is the only real example I can think of. Other instances were Coups.
So the signs are good so far.

do u think it is still possible for insurgents and those islam extremists to take over Iraq now?

The thing is, I don't think any of the insurgents are in the position to take over the country. Not even from the start. Remember, they are different factions that oppose each other. Right now it LOOKS like they're on the same side because they're attacking the Americans. If America pulls out for some reason, and the democratic government crumbles, then these guys would just be slugging it out for God knows how long.

religion is still an important part of Iraqi ppl's life....those insurgents fight in the name of jihad (holy war).....hope iraqi ppl will not be "stimulated" by the words of insurgents to persuade them to become enemies of democracy in the name of Islam.

hopefully now all the arabs living in the neighbouring countries will realise that iraq is benefiting from democracy, as does afghanistan, and there will be a revolution in all the backward dictatorships and theocracies, terrorist monarcy's etc...

Hi,

The Turnout was Decent i would say ...................more than i expected ............... But like i said a few times before ................. Statistics scare me .

Let me see they say 50 % of the Regestered Votes came up to vote ..................now lets see what if only 60 % (of all the eligible ) voters were Registered and out of that 50 % voted ............ hmmmmmmmm now what's the actual turwnout

Told you statistics can be easily molded to look the way you want it to be

Why do i have to play Devils Advocate everytime

Peace
