UPDATE: Obama Thanks UN For Successful Iraqi Elections

UPDATE: Obama thanks UN not US military for Iraq’s successful elections. Gateway Pundit tells us (because he can stomach watching ABC news):

US President Barack Obama has praised Iraq’s provincial elections as an “important step forward” for the future of the country.

“This important step forward should continue the process of Iraqis taking responsibility for their future,” Mr Obama said in a statement after millions of Iraqis went to the polls to elect councils in 14 or Iraq’s 18 provinces.

Security for the country’s first ballot since 2005 was extremely tight, with Iraqi police and military deployed in force, and Mr Obama praised the technical assistance by the United Nations and other organisations to Iraq’s electoral commission, which he said “performed professionally under difficult circumstances.”

Mr Obama said “it is important that the councils get seated, select new governors and begin work on behalf of the Iraqi people who elected them.”

The United States still has 130,000 soldiers serving in Iraq.

The troubled nation has seen a major turnaround due to the Bush Surge in 2007.
Obama did not mention the American military in his statement.

Nor did he mention the great sacrifice that the United States and other Allies have given so that another country can have freedom and democracy. Not only does Obama have stones, he has no qualms about lying or revising history.

Ahmadinejad Struts As Obama Weakness In World Grows

In the Middle East version of Saturday Night Live’s Hans and Franz’s “Girly Men” insults, Iran’s dictator, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called Obama’s tactics ‘a failure.’

This request means Western ideology has become passive, that capitalist thought and the system of domination have failed,” Gholam Hossein Elham was quoted as saying by the Mehr news agency.

“Negotiation is secondary, the main issue is that there is no way but for (the United States) to change,” he added.

After nearly three decades of severed ties, Obama said shortly after taking office this month that he is willing to extend a diplomatic hand to Tehran if the Islamic republic is ready to “unclench its fist”.

In response, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad launched a fresh tirade against the United States, demanding an apology for its “crimes” against Iran and saying he expected “deep and fundamental” change from Obama.

Iranian politicians frequently refer to the US administration as the “global arrogance”, “domineering power” and “Great Satan”.

Wonder how BHO will respond to the whacked Iranian puppet dictator? Will he take back his “citizen of the world” open door policy to meet the tyrant for a quick game of basketball?

On another front, Iraq (freed by President #43, United States military, and our Allies) held his most peaceful elections since Saddam Hussein was in power. Obama had the stones to acknowledge the successful democratic voting procedures by congratulating the country and “hailed the poll as an important step toward Iraqis taking responsibility for their future. I congratulate the people of Iraq on holding significant provincial elections today.”

Would Iraq even be a democratic country today if Obama had been in office at the time of Saddam’s 14th United Nation violations? Would Saddam been allowed to keep trying to build up their chemical weapons of mass destruction?

90% turnout of voters for Iraqi election. Makes apathetic Americans look ungrateful.

It’s a wait and wait and wait era for the United States as to the next time terrorists strike. Meanwhile, Obama sings “Why Can’t We Be Friends?”
