"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 in Iraq:
"In few hours time Iraq will be the Model in Democracy and freedom for the Middle East and the Arab region.Iraq will lead the changes"

Big Pharaoh from Egypt talks about Sen. Biden visiting a polling station in Hillah

Iraq the Model (a 2005 Weblog award nominee) has a great pictorial about going to vote in Baghdad.

Pajamas Media (a conglomerate of webloggers) is aggregating reports from eight different provinces in Iraq.
A Republican in San Francisco (Yes, he's under deep cover) relays his tales of interest... ...ok, "interest" is a strong and subjective word but you get the point.

I shall know but one country. The ends I aim at shall be my country's, my God's and Truth's. I was born an American; I live an American; and I shall die an American. -Daniel Webster (1782-1852)
