MSNBC just reported that 7 minutes into voting a huge explosion just occurred in Baghdad. No details yet but they are checking into the story to follow up.
I figured the terrorist would not let this one go by without trying to stop them. I hope this draws out more voters. While I did not agree with the war I certainly agree with Iraqis getting their own elected government.
This was stated on Tucker Carlsons show.
CNN says also explosions in Ramadi and Baghdad

If you think Iraq is on the path to democracy based on this "election" your very naive or just plain blind to the facts.
This by itself should set the alarm bells off. link
Just about every mistake possible was made in the post war occupation.
The means of goverance arent in place you cant hold a roof up without a soild foundation. I cant fathom why power was handed over to the Iraqi government so soon it should have been a gradual process over 15 -20 years.
And you cant blame the liberal media I had a interesting conversion with a class mate who is a Iraqi and has been in the countrie recently.
I asked him is there a leader who can unite Iraq?
Tell me who should I take the word of right wing members of the media who dont understand the very make up of Iraq or a someone who is from Iraq and understands the make up of the country?
