Connect the Dots

I'm starting to see a pattern

The Iraqi elections have been held, the results will not be available for days, but the fact that the elections happened at all is a testiment to the yearning for freedom.

Yeah! {Insert your version of the Happy Dance™ here}

If you take the long view, things are looking up in a big way. Let’s recount, shall we?

· August 2004: Afghanistan holds democratic elections; the first person to vote is a 19 year old woman
· October 2004: Howard’s Convervatives win the Austrailian election in a landslide, when they were expected to loose in a big way.
· November 2004: GWB / Four More Years / ‘Nuff said
· December 2004: The Palistinians hold elections following arafat’s (much too late) death; the new administration is making some small steps
· January 2005: Iraq successfully holds democratic elections for the first time in 50 years.

And expect Tony Blair to win in the parlimentary elections in early spring.

Is it just me, or is there a global movement towards democracy and freedom around the globe?
