Wow, FOX is saying the election is already a victory for us b/c
there haven't been any attacks TODAY. Apparently, "experts" had predicted there would be lots of attacks the day before the election and there has only been one(on the Green Zone). They say it's clear that al-Zarqawi and the insurgents have be "severely" weakened.

BTW, al-Zarqawi declared war on the election.

Tomorrow will be the most violent day we've seen in Iraq.

I changed the channel and have returned to reality.

2. You mean the car bomb
was before midnight Iraq time?

I thought we caught al-Zarqawi, not once but TWICE already.

4. Iraqis need to boycott this election
stay home and stay alive - if they vote they are just propping up Bush policies

this will do nothing to end or stop the insurgency .... they battled the Soviets in Afghanistan how long?

the insurgency will win, shit they have already won

8. I read this morning
that several hundred Iraqi police uniforms and a handful of police vehicles came up missing last week.
My bet is they will appear tomorrow with insurgents in them.

9. They'll just keep smearing lipstick on that pig.
It makes absolutely no difference - no matter what happens, it'll be called a "success" by Bushtards, payolagandists, and Reichophants.

11. CNN is orgasmic over this election.
The euphoria has already started. Female-Backtiar(sp?) is saying how wonderful this democratic process is (with smiling Iraqi footage) and how Iraquis are so lucky to be going thru this. Yeah - lucky like a kidney-stone removal or heart bypass!

12. PoxNews and their commentators have been saying this for the past
two years. That things in Iraq are better than the media make out, there is "success" etc.

16. Bush said a few days ago that the election was a success simply
because it was taking place. Fox the WH Parrot again.
