A massive post on the Iraqi election at Iraq The Model:
From our correspondent in Kerbala, I.S for pajamas:
People rushed to the polling centers in Karbala since early morning and the first person who voted was a 53 [-year-old] woman who sells dairy products on a sidewalk.
She said: "I had to come early to be able to go back to my work I need to sell all this stuff you see" and she was referring to a tray full of cream and cheese she was holding!
Voting ended a few hours ago.
I had similar notions about Iraq, Mosul, the war and what exactly soldiers do. And it was handily shattered like glass today by a group of soldiers, half of them younger than myself.

The Iraqis gave the terrorists the finger. Again.
