Joyful Iraqi Exiles Vote in Landmark Election

Topics: Iraq Elections

The Iraqi election has begun and the MSM nay-sayers will soon have to eat a little crow. And while we are on the subject of birds, have you ever know such a bird brain as this guy? For a U.S. Senator, drunk or sober, to castigate a sitting president in a time of war, call him a liar, and say that our troops are part of the problem, not the solution, is treason. He needs to sober up for an extended period of time, get some psychological counseling to accept that the election is over, visit his priest and confess what really happened on the Dike bridge that day so he'll be a little less angry, and help this country move forward as one nation committed to wining the War on Terror.

AMMAN (Reuters) - Jubilant Iraqi exiles cast their ballots in a "vote for freedom" on Friday and urged their compatriots in Iraq to defy insurgents and do the same.

In the United States, Iraqi expatriates defied frigid temperatures and long trips to the polls to enthusiastically cast their votes across the eastern United States.

"I'm 39, but today, I'm just born," said Yaqoob Al-Awsa, a painter from Ann Arbor, Michigan, who was also celebrating his birthday. "This is the first day for me. I was almost crying."

In Irvine, California, a stream of Iraqis, including older men and women wearing headscarves went through metal detectors to vote.

Talal Ibrahim, 52, originally from Baghdad, was the first to cast his ballot to a round of applause from poll workers.

"I'm very excited. I'm so happy. I think this is the least thing we can do for Iraq ... This is the start of a stable Iraq," said Ibrahim, a communications engineer.
