Iraq poll 'blow' to global terrorTopics: Iraq Elections
I'm not sure that global terrorism is shaking in it's boots right now, but surely it's hearing the faint voice of the fat lady begining to practice. Free people don't give up their freedom easily, as our friends on the left would not only have us believe but also accept as our fate.
Tony Blair has said free elections in Iraq had struck a blow "right to the heart of global terrorism".
Acknowledging the divisions caused by Britain's part in military action the UK premier said the "force of freedom" was now being felt throughout Iraq.
He paid tribute to the "clear sighted courage" of voters who turned out to participate in the first multi-party poll in the country for 50 years.
Meanwhile, exiled Iraqis in the UK have been voting at three regional centres.
In his statement Mr Blair warned there remained a great deal to do in Iraq's fledgling democracy.
