Iraq has voted. The inevitable violence has unfortunately been there as well. Nonetheless this should be seen as progress and it is hard not to moved by the determination of Iraqi voters to make it work.
This is also a step towards victory in Iraq. In an earlier post I tried to define the conditions for declaring victory in Iraq:
It will be over on the last day coalition forces in Iraq carry out the last combat operations to maintain internal order. Of course we will only be able to determine that date in hindsight.
