the iraqis are a-voting.
the times says that people have dressed to the nines to go vote. and things are going really well "in spite of some explosions". what the hell kind of situation is that?
As the polls opened at 7 a.m., a mortar struck the middle of the Green Zone compound in central Baghdad, the site of the American Embassy and the offices of top Iraqi officials. About the same time, a roadside bomb exploded in Ramadi. There were no immediate reports of casualties in either blast.
sounds like things are really coming together.
