Today the people of Iraq will elect their first government since the American invasion in 2003. Some violent incidents were reported when the polling places were opened this morning, but participation seems to be substantial.
The Iraqi president, Jalal Talabani, has asked that this be a day of celebration. Around 15 million citizens have been asked to vote, and it is expected that the Sunni population will also participate massively. Some insurgent groups have supported this election, but Al-Qaeda considers it a “Satanic operation.”
