  •  Hope and Wait (none)
    Why ask success?  Right now?  Let the voters speak for themselves, let the process speak for itself.  Look at the relative security under which the process took place.

    Can't we just cross our fingers and look on with hope and maybe even wonder at the stoic devotion of the Iraqi people?

    Understand that this act of democracy might ask us to turn our previously held opinions on their heads.

    Let's wait and see and hope.

    •  Because (none)
      hope is not a plan.  I think you describe Bush policy.  I find that incompetent and irresponsible.

    •  If we were able to leave tonight (none)
      then my previously held views would be happily turned on their head.  But we cannot leave tonight - we cannot leave tomorrow, or next month, and probably not this year.  So what is different???

      I keep waiting for someone to ask one of the neocons, "Where the hell is Osama bin Laden???  Why haven't we attacked Saudi Arabia, home to 15 of the 19 hijackers???"

      The disparity between spin and reality is really disturbing me, and I cannot understand why 45% of the American people cannot see it.  They are blinded by ignorance.
