the purple ink is supposed to mean that they've voted, isn't it?

anyway, here's wikipedia's entry on the vote:

as far as thoughts on the election results are concerned... i don't have too many aside from that this will probably make the resultant government in iraq percieved as being that much more legitimate by the people of iraq (which is a good thing)

*laughs*

Maybe Larry's right and democracy IS the answer. It says something that even with the threat of terrorism, more iraqis vote than americans....

it's easier to take something for granted when you've always had it. current generation americans have always had it and always known it, whereas iraqis haven't...
