It makes me smile to view positive images from Iraq. Our media is flooded but nothing but negative reports and I just wanted to say, thank you.
Wonderful pictures. It is one small step for a man; a giant leap for Iraqis and for humanity. Congratulations!
What a joy to see those beautiful blue fingers!
Thank you for the pictures.Most people here in North America would have breakdowns if they had to live as Iraqis have for decades.God bless and long live the NEW IRAQ.
Greetings from New York City. Those pictures are truly inspiring, thank you for sharing them. May God save Iraq and her people.
Thanks for the views. This is a huge step forward!!
Thank you for these photos. The Iraqi people honor us with their courage and perserverance. God Bless you all.
Nice to see men and women voting together. Next the burqa will go and Iraqis will truly be free.
Hello from Houston, Texas USA.Congratulations on being in history books forever by having the special opportunity to vote on your country's constitution. Ours is over 200 years old, so I didn't get to vote. But I believe they voted correctly.We keep Iraq in our prayers to blossom into a wonderful free and strong country. I look forward to the day that our help and support is no longer needed and our troops can come home. That will be a wonderful day for the entire world.
Thank you for sharing these beautiful images. It took the United States 13 years to nail down a constitution. Iraq is way ahead on the path to freedom!
Thanks Sooni! :)
Wonderful pictures! I hope all goes well for these brave people. Thanks so much for the post.
Good on ya, Sooni!
Wonderful pictures! I too love to see the smiles on the voters' faces. I notice there is a person with "Press" on the back of his flak jacket .. wonder who that is and just what he will write? Could it be Michael Yon? Congrats, Iraq, you're doing well.
Great pictures, especially when the only non-Iraqis seen in them is the press; fully Iraqi security. Your country, your polls, your election. Someday I hope American tourists significantly outnumber American troops in Iraq (although- considering the normal American tourist- I'm not sure that would be a good deal for Iraq :))Way to go, Iraq!!
SooniThank you for the photos.Our families in Baghdad are celebrating with several sheeps today for the constitution in iftar?God bless Iraq and those who helped its people reach today in history.Kind regardsHameed Abid
Hello and good luck from Northern California.Pictures indeed speak a thousand words, and maybe more if taken from the pages of media of the rest of the world.We salute your efforts - to be free and empowered.
Congratulations Brave Iraqi People!God Bless you and your new free country!
No doubt these photos will never grace the pages of the NY Times, but those of us who want the truth seek it on the Internet. God bless the Iraqis in their quest for freedom and God bless our troops.
It is great to see the Iraqi people voting even bringing their children to witness the voting process. Seems to be the only way we can really see what is truly going on in Iraq. Our media just wants to concentrate on the bad news in Iraq. Congratulations to all the Iraqi citizens.
Welcome to the family of free nations.
Thank you for the photos! It is so wonderful to see the joy on the faces of the Iraqis. Let freedom reign! Congratulations on a free Iraq.
Your pictures bring home to us the reality of the courage and steadfastness of the Iraqi people. We can learn a lot from them.
God bless you.
yes! show the world that freedom and democracy is possible...not easy at times...but very possible. let this be an encouragement to everyone else in non-democratic countries to stand up. let this be an example to the insurgents to become a part of the solution and not a part of the problem. i just wish that the main stream media here in the u.s. would show some good news about whats going on there, not just " x number of people were killed today in iraq..." give people hope. take care iraqis.
While we Americans are worried about the outcome of Saturday's football games, you Iraqis are showing us what is truly important. Instead of "Go UCLA," it's "Go Iraqis." You Iraqis are showing us what is truly important - democracy and the right to vote for a Constitution of your choice. May you all enjoy good health and a long and prosperous free life! So - "GO IRAQ," the overwhelming majority of Americans honor and respect you.
This is truly inspiring!!! Thank you so much for sharing the photos, and congratulations on your new democracy!
As "_gentle" said, your pictures made me smile and as others have said they are beautiful thank you for sharing them, as I won't see them here through my biased media. Unfortunately in Canada they bow to BBC for their news sources (disgusting! sigh) right now they are claiming 'maybe 50% of all eligible voters voted'. Nice eh?Just so you know, as far as Iraqi is concerned I stick with blogs like this now, so I'm getting a much truer picture.
Thank you for the pictures, there is a dirth of them on tv right now. I thought such a momentous thing would be covered wall to wall. Thanks god we have the blogs!Iraqi people are truly inspirational!
GOD BLESS IRAQ!
Today's photos are historic, and should be held sacred in your family for many generations. Let us pray Free Iraq is now well-launched, and will sail the peaceful oceans of the world forever.
Bless you and your fellow countrymen. No matter wehich way the vote goes, you will all have won as Iraqis realize that their vote counts. This is the beginning of a great and positive change.
i'm glad that the elections were mostly free from the chaos that called"the insurgency".i hope you brave people of iraq can finally be on your way to peace and happiness.war is stupid.i'm a navy vet who fought in the first gulf war.all the best
Please tell your brother thank you for these heartwarming pictures!And thank you for showing them to us.:)Michelle
Hold it, did someone mention FOOTBALL?Sorry, gotta REPRESENT.GO HAWKEYES!The Big Ten ROOOLZ!!!*
Amen. I am glad to see progress in Iraq ans I pray for the Iraqi people. Good luck to you all and know the true intention of GWB!
I salute you, noble Iraqi citizens!(These photos make this American cry tears of joy for you.)Liberty, freedom - these must be won by blood, sweat and toil. (Later, we can carp - but only because we have earned this right, too.)
I see these and other wonderful photos of what's happening over there in your country. It's truly historic. And all I can say is this:IRAQ WINS THE ELECTION!
YEA!!!GO IRAQIS!!!GOD BLESS IRAQ!!!
from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA:God helps those who help themselves! Keep up the good work and may God bless your efforts to vote freedom and democracy into your lives and into the lives of your children and your children's children. Sic Semper Tyrannis! A.D.S.

It's really heartwarming to see the Iraqi people with such happy faces as they determine their own future.I'm so glad that for the most part it was peacefull today, and so many went to vote and make their voices known.

God bless you. Congratulations, Iraq.

May your country be blessed.I am proud of you and will continue to pray for Iraq.This day in history will never forgotten by your children and grandchildren.
Dear Sooni:From this day forward a new phrase has entered the Iraqi vocabulary."We, the people"
Thanks for the awesome pictures of the free Iraq people.It is so nice to see and hear the positive side since mostall we hear from the main stream media is the negative.I pray for the people of Iraq that they will enjoy theirnew democracy. Also, thanks to our great President,George Bush, for sticking to his guns to help free thesepeople.God Bless,Becky Hatch
Thank you for the wonderful pictures. These mean a great dealto freedom loving people all over the world and especially they mean so much to those families who have lost loved ones to the terrorists.Iraqis are some of the bravest people on the planet. Enjoy your new democracy and show the world what the Middle East can become.-A Proud American
I'm still wondering how the boy that got both his arms blown off by US bombs voted.
The same way the seven men who had their hands surgically removed by Saddam's doctors. At least we regret the lost and pain that young boy suffered.Beyond that - please forward my congratulations and respect to the Iraqi people. I hope my precinct has purple ink for the next election - it represents a lesson in courage that Americans can learn from you.KenMc - Indianapolis
Beautiful! Thank you for sharing them.
They should of inked the middle finger so they could show that to the rest of the world !!
Dear Sooni,Congratulations to you and yours on Iraq's great achievements!Thank you so much for sharing these precious momentos with us.
Thank you for your blog, your time is well spent, if we listen to our media you are worse off than before, without the internet and people like you we would know nothing, well done and keep it up.ChrisCornwall England

I dont see, there is a diference between living in iraq before and after the invasion of USA into this country. Beside of the missing soldiers of the IRAQ, who were murdered when they defends their country. USA - STUPID nation...
