A qualified success
What a great day for Iraqis. No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, whether you think President Bush is the Second Coming or the Great Satan, this election, at least thus far, can be considered a success. I think Zarqawi and his clan realized that full-scale mayhem and attacks on people attempting to finally be free would probably be a great tactical mistake, though 30 people died in various strikes today. Now comes the intersting part -- making the country work without the U.S. as puppetmaster and law enforcer.
