My two Euro-cents worth....

The Cap'n and others have already commented on the Iraqi elections and here are my two Euro-cents worth: Anyone with half-a-brain should be able to see the writing on the wall. When given the choice between tyranny and democracy, people will choose democracy everytime. Our forefathers did so over 200 years ago when they declared their independence from the English throne and the Iraqis have done so today when they declared their independence from Saddam's tyranny.

Many of President Bush's detractors love to quote him to point out the way that he destroys the English language. Unfortunately, they conveniently overlook this quote which is so a apropos today:

"The liberty we prize is not America's gift to the world, it is God's gift to humanity." President George W. Bush, 26 March 2003

They would do best to remember this and reflect upon its meaning before opening their "pie holes".
