Today, the most important elections to be ever held in the Middle East will begin. It will not only be a stepping stone in the shaping of one country, but will set the blueprint for how the rest of the middle East will develop. Let's hope the elections go through without any major brutal incidents.
How will the elections go? That seems touch and go, as there is a chance that the unprecedented security will be able to successfully halt insurgents, or that the insurgents will succeed in mounting a coordinated attack throughout the country. How about the more important issue, that of the future of Iraq? How will things develop after today? How will the country shape up? That, I don't think anyone can predict with much confidence.
