To the people of Iraq

I wish you a long and prosperous democracy. I hope you will quickly become comfortable enough in your freedom that you take the vote for granted. I hope you are able to laugh at your adversaries and vigorously advocate for your allies.

I hope that one day a statue of a woman with a purple finger will replace the statue of Saddam fallen from the pedestal in Baghdad.

You are an inspiration to free people everywhere (though some may not yet have noticed it).
