Iraq elections

While turnout was not as high as hoped, it was very peaceful, so overall I think we can be pleased with how the weekend's elections in Iraq went.

I think there's less than an even chance that the habit will stick, but whether or not it will stick is in the hands of the Iraqis, themselves now, as it should be.

Now it's time for us to redeploy, remove the irritant of a foreign occupation and redeploy troops to the more important fight in Afghanistan, and start rebuilding the Army.
