The "American Elections . . ."

". . . are rather more crucial for (Iraq) at the moment than our own ." says Alaa in Baghdad at The Mesopotamian. It's not that theirs aren't important, he continues, they are. It's that Iraq is at such a critical stage in its continued progress, the Iraqi people simply can't afford a Bush defeat. And neither, he says, can the United States.

Unfortunately, it seems to me that many in the U.S. don’t quite appreciate how high the stakes are. The challenge is mortal, and you and we are locked in a War, a National emergency; and in such circumstances partisan considerations must be of secondary importance.

More, much more here.
