Somehow, I had missed the fact that Iraqi expatriates are voting in Syria. Thus, Iraqis living in Syria can participate in a democratic process, but Syrians can’t. A bit odd, that, but it’s another example of the impact this election could have in the Arab world.
The election should also have a major impact in the U.S. If Americans see that Iraqis thirst so much for democracy that they will risk their lives to vote, it’s difficult to imagine a majority supporting the Ted Kennedy cut-and-run position any time soon.
