The Iraqi Election


Spend 2 or 3 minutes viewing this slide show on Yahoo. The photos will make the election more real to you.

The RealClearPolitics blog pretty much sums up the significance of today's events:

"Forget about politics for a minute. You're either moved by the pictures and news reports from Iraq or you aren't. You either believe what Iraqis are doing today is a courageous act of great significance or you don't. From an emotional standpoint there really isn't much of a middle ground."
I'd say that's about right.

I am puzzled by photos 104 and 104 in the photo display. The captions stated that the armed men in the photo, searching voters, were "Iraqi insurgents" who were "securing" the voting site. Does this make sense? Weren't the insurgents against participation in the election? Or could it be that the insurgents were trying to encourage Sunni turnout by guarding a voting site in a Sunni area? Or is the caption just mistaken?
