All For One, One For All

Does that picture not just say it all? Iraq has held its first truly free election in decades today. And what of the "blood baths" that insurgents promised? Well, apparently that was about as much media hype as it could have ever been. Of the hundreds of supposed attacks that were going to happen there were only 9 suicide bombings, and of these, (to show you how desperate they are) one of them was committed by a disabled kid.
"He claimed the rebels had used a handicapped child to carry out one of nine suicide bombings Sunday, calling it a sign of their depravity. Police at one Baghdad blast said the bomber did appear to have Down syndrome."
The age of tyranny in the middle east is coming to an end.
