Iraqi Election goes well

The election in the Iraq had a fairly large turn out. This was hardly a suprise in retrospect. Anywhere where there is an election for the first time there always a fairly large turn out. It happen in the ex-USSR states and in South Africa.
However, now they have had an election, we are still to see if the result will accepted by the vast majority and if those elected will ask the US troops to leave.

    Yeah there's a lot of right wing triumphalism going on, see Tim Blair or A western heart, however they are a long way from peaceful tolerant pluralist democracy...

    They felt the same way about the hand over of power in July last year. It is fairly simple, it is too early to tell.
    If it was ODI cricket match it would be the end of the first innings and they have made 267. Yet, there is a whole other innings to go.
