Liberty Just in Case

A Dialogue for the September 12th World

History: Giving Terrorism the Finger

Posted by Mark on January 31, 2005

Iraq celebrated its freedom today, and the United States celebrated with them. The pictures are moving, as millions of Iraqis showed courage, literally risking their lives to do something Americans take for granted. Estimates of voter turnout range from 60 to 72 percent, a far higher turnout than in any recent election here. The price of freedom will continue to be high, but the fruits of freedom in a country like Iraq could be great.

There are those who said this day could never happen, and terrorists who murdered dozens to try to prevent it. But the election did happen, and hopefully heralds, in the words of Lincoln, a new birth of freedom.
