Remember this day boys and girls. The first free election to be held in Iraq in 50 years takes place. While you may not have agreed with us going into Iraq, in the long run it was the best decision. Yes, it will take years for Iraq to become a true democracy, if it ever will, but by doing this we may have set the ground rules for the death of the "let sleeping dogs lie" way of thinking we've had for far too many years. We've seen where that line of thinking can lead us. Maybe now a future president of the U.S. or P.M. of England or Canada will have the courage to stand up and do what's right rather than bury their heads in the sand and hope the bad men will go away like they've done too many times before. This truly is a glorious day. We're seeing something very special being born before our own eyes. One day, years from now, you may be able to tell your children or grandchildren that you were witness to a major shift in the world. It may not seem like it now, but it really is. The fall of the Third Reich, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the rise of freedom in the Middle East. It may start in Iraq, but something tells me it won't end there. I think I'll close this post with the three most important words in the English language. Let Freedom Ring.
The Only Thing Necessary For Evil To Triumph
Is For Good Men To Do Nothing
