Iraqis on the elections

Iraqi bloggers write about election day. The Wall Street Journal has a round-up. A couple of examples:

  • "This is a very hurried message, while we are witnessing something quite extraordinary. I myself have voted and so did members of my family. Thank God for giving us the chance." (The Mesopotamian)
  • "In Kurdistan and Iraq now, people check others' index fingers: 'Oh you have a normal finger?!! How come it is not blue?! You are not democratic at all.'" (Kurdo's World)
