...but in our media, the general consensus was that the elections went off without a hitch, and that there were no major terrorist attacks.
Maybe that's because, there are not now, nor have there ever been, any "terrorists" in Iraq. At least not any worth overthrowing a country for.
junior knows the difference:
President Bush called the Iraqi election a resounding success and promised that the United States will help Iraqis fight continuing insurgency as they build a democratic government.
"The world is hearing the voice of freedom from the center of the Middle East," Bush said. "In great numbers, and under great risk, Iraqis have shown their commitment to democracy."
Insurgents... Voting "under great risk"...
...sounds like a bush success to me.
"We will build a statue for Bush," "He is the symbol of freedom."said Ali Fadel, the former provincial council chairman.(and future mayor of Baghdad)
Just trading in one dictator for another.
