In less than 2 days, the people of Iraq will go to the polls — and already Iraqis in countries across the world from the United States to Germany to Australia. The spirit of democracy among Iraqis is stretching from the Fertile Crescent to the rest of the globe. It is only natural that other Arab regimes are trying to downplay the elections — they know quite well that once one country in a region seizes freedom for itself, others will follow.
The events of the next few hours will change the world — and despite the threats of the terrorists the Iraqi people remain unbowed. Their will towards democracy and freedom will transform not only Iraq, but the entire world.
