More Really Good (and Mostly Unreported) News

Afghanistan, once the home of the Taliban and the base of operations for Bin Laden, held their elections yesterday. Millions of people voted...and despite threats from the terrorists, violence was almost non-existent. Seeing the pictures of donkeys carrying ballot boxes into the remote mountain villages filled me with pride---the hard work and sacrifice of America made this day a reality. (It also filled me with contempt for those who take our right to vote for granted and stay home on election days.)

The Fourth Rail has an outstanding rundown of the news...as well as very insightful analysis into the impotence of our enemies in Afghanistan. It's doubtful that the media will ever fully credit President Bush with this outcome, but he deserves the Nobel Peace Prize far more than Jimmy Carter ever will.
