Elections in Iraq

Hello NATO, anyone home? Canada want to be our friend again, eh? Memo to the E.U.seless, would you like to be relevant for once? Then how about supporting elections in Iraq. You're all against the war, we get it now. But here's some breaking news: the war is over. Without starting any "do the ends justify the means" crap, an oppressive and murderous totalitarian regime has been removed and the people of Iraq are trying to elect a government. Take a stand for liberal democracy (see I can use the word liberal in a non-derogatory way). Even Thomas Friedman gets it! And Andrew Sullivan too! These guys aren't exactly warmongering, Bush-loving Republicans (to put it mildly). For the last time, you don't have to like support Bush, or even like him, to support the spread of Democracy in Iraq.

And for those of you who think the war isn't over, on account of all those "freedom fighters", here's the thing: Freedom Fighters fight for freedom and democracy, not against it. People that target violent attacks against civilians with the stated goal of disrupting elections and suppressing the will of the people to advance their own politics are called... Terrorists.
