So says Neurotic Iraqi Wife. Overall Iraqi blogs were positive toward president elect Obama, but not all bloggers were happy.
Layla Anwar only foresees doom for Iraq during Obama's presidency:
So Obama, the booma, won the elections. [Booma means owl, but in Iraqi dialect it also means someone very stupid]…the vice president for the booma Obama is none other than J.Biden. J.Biden, the Zionist, is an ardent supporter of the partition of Iraq into three statelets. No wonder Maliki and Co were also backing the booma along with Iran… I am glad that the evil, bastard Bush is out. No doubt about it. But I shall not congratulate you on your 44th president. He will simply finish off what the other Zionists had started — The final partition of my country.
To hell with all of you and all of your presidents.
To say that Neurotic Wife is pleased with the US presidential election would be an understatement. She writes:
Change, change, change. Change is on its way. Change to the vicious Bush administration. The Bush administration that lied, tricked, conned the world, and most of all conned the Iraqis. … For me, this is not just about history, this is about someone who was able to bring down the very people that broke my country. Itâ€™s a great punch to the very people that destroyed the individual Iraqi. And that to me is an enough victory.I will only have to say to Mr Obama, donâ€™t let us down. You came thus far, and as an Iraqi Im depending on you. Donâ€™t let dirty politics break your promises. … I learnt a few lessons in life, and that is to never ever over expect things from individuals, but in this instance I am. I am expecting many things from Obama. And disappointment is NOT one of them. As for all the red neck extremists out there, for all you people who cannot fathom how a black American can be your president, Tough luck. Live with it…
Itâ€™s a beautiful clear sky today. A BLUE sky. The start of a new era. The Obama Eraâ€¦
And Fatima, an Iraqi American is at last proud. She declares:
For me, I am so proud of America right now. Proud of it for overcoming so much, and showing us what it is capable of.
And for me, I really hope that Obama does not disappoint. I hope that he leads this nation to justice and equality for all, and that he stays away from aggression, wherever it may be. I hope that he does not become just another one of them presidents.
And finally, I really do salute John McCain on his work and his speech last night. It was chivalrous, and I hope he rests after his long years of service.GOOOBAMA! Long Live Justice, Equality and all this is good in this world!
I end with messages of congratulations from Iraqis to America.
Americans have elected an African American man named Barack Hussein Obama as their next President. God bless America!
Am I happy for Iraq? I don't know. I don't know what will happen and I'm afraid.Will he pull out the troops?
Will he care enough to reach a good compromise â€“ fair to the Iraqi people?
But in spite of all my fears, I am so happy for America – You have come such a long way. You had the strength, the will to elect this man of change. And with all my heart I hope he puts America on the path to recovery.
To see America again on the pedestal of freedom and democracy, a benign force that heals instead of hurts, unites instead of divides â€“ soon inshalla.
I wish to congratulate you all.
Over the years I have often found myself defending Americans from such critics as the French or Arabs, who charge the people of the U.S. are ignorant racist idiots. I have tried to talk to those critics, but naturally I got nowhere. Maybe the election of Barack Obama as president of the United States will tell them how wrong they are. Only the heartless were not moved last night when Obama was announced the winner of the presidency. … So congratulations to Barack Obama. Let no one say this is not an amazing country.
And from Baghdad, Marshmallow26:
Congratulations dear Americans on the elections and the new US president. no matter how the results came out, you hope and we hope that the new president will bring a brighter future to the USA and Iraq.More than 130 million Americans have been voted. That is a massive number.
What I like the most about Americans is that they didn't put ” race” on top priorities while voting, the majority of white people had elected Obama who is an African descent, because they don't believe in colors or religions but principles towards the country and its people…
Once again Mabrook :)
