Do you think the Iraqi elections be successful?

I'm not sure what would make them successful. I doubt that the results will conform to the ideals of a democratic society.

I dont know. I hope they are and that the violence does die down after, like the reports say. My brother was just sent back to Iraq last week (he was there for a year when we first invaded) for another year and I just hope and pray that the elections will help set up a new government so our troops can come back home.

I hope that they will be successful. It was very exciting to see people voting when they have never voted before...

In the morning newspaper there was a political cartoon with an Arab in robes, finger marked to show he'd voted, sitting in front of a jigsaw puzzle, "Democracy", with hundreds and thousands of puzzle pieces pouring out of the box.

The Arab had assembled five or six pieces.

The voting was a beginning. I hope a next step is to feature women as part of the solution.

I'm not sure how to measure success. I think they are a good step towards the Iraqi people taking charge of their country, getting the kinds of government they want and being collectively responsible for the actions of their country.
