Michael Yon’s Coverage of the Recent Iraqi Election was wonderful

I just read Michael Yon’s account of the latest Iraqi election, “Purple Fingers.” This was my first opportunity to read what Michael had written.

Here is an excerpt of the beginning of Michael’s coverage of election day:

“I walked through the morning darkness to meet the soldiers, who were laughing at the terrorists: “Don’t those dumbasses know that the voting will happen during the daytime?” When it comes to winning hearts and minds, cutting off the electricity didn’t win any support. I have been saying it for many months: The terrorists are losing. But today was litmus-day.”

If you have not done so already, go to Michael Yon’s blog and read his summary of the preceding votes and his full coverage of the latest elections in Baghdad and all over Iraq. Michael accompanied the CSM as he visited the polling stations through out Baghdad election day.
