10. Back to reality, please
Fact check:
1) Saddam was indeed a brutal dictator
2) It's not a surprise that the Shia, who are the majority in the country and were dominated by Saddam's party, are glad that they're now going to put their own guys into office.
3) Voting for the first time in your life must be a pretty great experience.

1, 2, and 3 above, however, in no way makes the US-led invasion right or good policy.
