Brave Voters.

In Baghdad, insurgents rounded up four voters who had left a polling station. Insurgents identified them by their ink-stained fingers, and killed them by throwing grenades at them, Iraqi police said.
I know CNN has been told to run "only good news" about the election. But do you think they could mention the 44 dead somewhere in their coverage? Our good buddies at CNN were so excited about the election they hid the story about 44 killed trying to vote. Where is this story listed? Look at the 5th story down. Under the Big Headline, "Praise for Iraq Elections". Good for them.

300,000 troops on the streets to protect the voters and they STILL KILLED 44 people. Well at least we found those WMDs and took away the threat to America--NOT.

Maybe something good WILL come out of this 200 Billion dollar 13XX US lives, over 100,000 Iraq lives trip into the mid-east. And maybe this WAS the best way to spend our money and the lives of our soldiers. I don't think so. More on this topic later.

Apparently the food list was used to control voters as well. Many were concerned that the rations would be cut if they didn't vote. See First Draft:

I hadn't read about the grenade deaths of the voters. How desperately sad.

Ellroon: God! That give true meaning to Puffy's Vote or Die slogan.

If they hated us "because of our freedom" do you suppose now they will hate themselves "because of our freedom"?

Get it right, Spocko. About eight of these 44 were the suicide bombers themselves. I doubt they planned on voting before they took themselves and the Iraqi voters out. And stop calling them "insurgents". They're terrorists. Seven of these Islamo-Facists were not even Iraqi, but Saudis. You are such a loser.

A textual analysis suggests you are my brother. If you are, contact me offline.

LOL No, I am most assuredly not your brother, Spocko. If fact, I am nobody's brother, as I am a conservative woman who just happened to come across your blog, and I couldn't refrain from responding to your typical, asinine, Leftist dribble.
