WAR IN IRAQ WON!

That would have been the headline over at the Washington Post if I were editor in chief. Instead, this is.

Ok, well congratulations America. We did it. They all voted. There were reports of insurgents providing security for polling stations.
"This is our future. This is our destiny," Ammar Ahmed, a self-described supporter of the insurgency, said in Fallujah, a western Sunni city devastated by war. Tens of thousands there streamed to the polls. "If we don't want to live like this, we can't leave it to others," Ahmed said.

The war is over. Democracy is in place. The Iraqi people are free. Time to start bringing some of our troops home.

"Well kids, it's been fun, but it's time to go! Aww, I know you're sad and you want to stay and play with your friends all night, but it's really past your bedtime!" That'd be the byline.

Your blog is very thoughtful and well put together. And while it probably won't increase your traffic any, I'm definitely blog-rolling you. Hope adjusting to post-Iraq life is going well!
