Election Time

So it is election time once again in Iraq and the tension is rising. People are starting to worry about their safety and what exactly they think will happen, but here is my prediction. The elections go off with only a few hitches. A couple suicide bombers here, maybe a bomb or two there, but overall I think more people will come out to vote since they saw what happened when they didn't vote the last time. I also bet that a higher percentage of Iraqis will vote then Americans did in the last presidential election. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

You are right Boggs. If you don't vote you can't complain about things not being done right and you also can't take credit for the things that are being done right. Right? Sometimes we think that if you have never served in the Military you shouldn't complain about how are men fight our wars either. Most people complain about cashiers and waitresses to and I often wonder if those complaining could do those jobs themselves. Please be EXTRA careful for the elections and aftermath as well as every day! We'll be thinking about you all. Good blog that put our attention where it should be tonight. Thanks Timothy! How is the food over there by the way?

Hey Boggs,
Good blog. I was just wondering if you could comment on the morale of the troops. I want to hear it from somebody who is there and rubbing shoulders with the other men. How is your morale? What do you really feel? Do you get to interact with the civilian Iraqis much? How do YOU see them? Do you work much with the ISF and how are they coming along? I'm sending you the questions that I hear from folks at the coffee counter. Those are pretty pat questions though. I want to know how sanitation is in Iraq? Do you guys get sick a lot like from unsanitary conditions and illnesses that you don't see in the US? If you get hurt do they give you a shot in the rear and tell you to get back out there? Do you get lonely or are you too busy staying alive and doing your job to get lonely? I think it would be the toughest job in the world being a soldier in Iraq. Thanks, Boggs for what you do. We at the counter worry about you every day. Please be careful! Thanks for the blog and for making it possible for them to vote over there.

Timothy,
Is there any way you can let anonymous comments be posted? Bet you would get a lot more responses if you could. We noticed that most people will send comments that way because they don't want to get a blogger account and some unfamiliar with computers just have a difficult time setting one up. Just wondered t.f. since you have nothing better to do with your time - - - Don't you just hate people who make stupid suggestions? You may have a very good reason for not doing that. But I have noticed that this is true. G'nite

Hey guys thanks for the suggestions. I actually just wrote a blog commenting on the morale of the troops and will most likely be posting it on saturday once it is completed. I will be writing more about daily life here come soon cause I will be getting wireless this week. As far as I can tell the elections went ok. I will be talking to some Iraqis soon and I would love to hear how they think it went. And I think I will allow anonymous comments, thanks for the suggestion.

It will be great to get your perspective t.f. Most everything I've read from other MILbloggers (MSM stinks!!) is that the election was a success, in relative peace Iraqis went out in droves to vote.

You stay safe!
