"God bless Iraq and its allies and friends" - Hammorabi
A quick roundup of some voices that I like to listen to in Iraq and the greater Middle East on this historic day. For those who don't know (which doesn't surprise me seeing as how the coverage of the voting has been looking more like an "also ran" type of story unless something bad happens), Iraqi's today are voting for their first ever
freely elected democratic government.
First up is Hammorabi
