An historic day unfolds as the polls open in Iraq:

"BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraqis vote for a new government on Thursday in the hope it will end decades of suffering, boost living standards and pave the way for U.S.-led troops to leave, nearly three years after they invaded.

In the first election for a full four-year parliament since the fall of Saddam Hussein, 15 million Iraqis are eligible to vote and at least 10 million are expected to do so.

From the Gulf to the mountainous borders of Turkey and Iran, war-weary voters will file into more than 6,000 polling stations, ink their fingers to guard against multiple voting and drop their votes into plastic ballot boxes."


Polls opened at 11pm EST. Looks like Iraq is moving into Democracy. The plan is working.
