So I'm watching a Fox News story on Iraqi expatriates in the U.S. voting in the Iraq elections in Michigan... and the reporter is interviewing Iraqis who have voted and they are 100% unanimously elated and delighted to be able to vote -- and so desperately proud of their purple fingers!
And they are showing pictures of the Iraqis who are taking their children to the polls because they want their children to be part of history!
Then they are interviewing a 77-year-old Grandmother -- an Iraqi who fled Iraq when Saddam took power -- and she tells the interviewer in no uncertain terms that she thanks the Americans because if it wasn't for the Americans, they wouldn't have this chance today. And then she says -- wagging her finger at the camera,
"ANYONE WHO DOESN'T APPRECIATE WHAT AMERICANS HAVE DONE -- WHAT PRESIDENT BUSH HAS DONE -- LET THEM GO TO HELL!"
Priceless. Absolutely priceless.
God (by all the names the people of the world call you), please hold the Iraqi voters and all the soldiers and police protecting them in your loving hands. God, let all those who love and yearn for peace prosper in this election. Let Freedom ring (and Our Guys all come home!) Amen.
