    That was a stroke of genius. Moving the date up unexpectedly like that was brilliant.

    Now all the festivities the terrorists had planned are moot.

    Not quite moot, they killed one of the hostages, but certainly going to make it harder to be them.

    Anything they do now, will not be against the US led coalition. It will be against the Sovereign nation of Iraq and its people.

    This was perhaps the smartest move I've seen the Bush Admin take in Iraq. I was beginning to wonder if something like this was going to happen to throw off the terrorists.

    :clap:

    Definitely a good move. Another good one was selecting Allawi. He definitely is not a puppet. He probably will get elected when the time comes next year as the full time leader of IRaq. He is very strong and has a good vision for his country. 70% approval of him being leader from the Iraqi people is a good endorsement. I wish the best for him in these troubling times.

    Not the 100% endorsement Saddam had, but close enough :D

    Yeah, that was pretty funny. 100% of the population voted for Ole Uncle Saddam!

    What was really humorous is that he would even try to proclaim a 100% victory in his little election. What it did was show the world how corrupt he was & what kind of iron grip he had. I remember reading reports about how the 'Election Officials' (with machine guns) would check everyone's ballot prior to being deposited in the box.

    And not ONE hanging chad!
