Merk Kennedy: Congratulations Iraq!

Rep. Kennedy's statement on Iraq's elections.

##
"What a difference two years makes.

"In August of '03 I was in Iraq, and every Marine I met wanted to show me the field that Iraqis began digging in as soon as they took control of it. A mass grave was there with 3,000 bodies, part of the 4-500,000 in mass graves around the country.

"This hopelessness has really driven the Iraqis to embrace the freedom that our brave soldiers have given them to opportunity for.

"That's why as we stand here today, millions of Iraqis - Shia, Sunni, Kurd - are giving the terrorists the finger- the ink-stained finger- voting for the third time this year. And as they do that, they are piercing through the hopelessness that breeds terrorism.

"They are giving themselves an opportunity for a better life. They are transforming a region. They are making America safer.

"We applaud the Iraqis, we thank the American troops that have made this possible." (Source: Rep. Kennedy Press Release, Dec. 15, 2005)

The Holy Spirit's message today on The Christian Prophet blog, teaching as it always does, goes into the feelings Iraqi voters are feeling as they begin to take personal responsibility for their lives.
