R Fisk: "Cheering 'democracy' as the Iraqis still die".

Didn't read it. Wouldn't pay for the privilege. And I don't recommend you do, either. The headline is painful enough.

Both the violent crimes being committed and the hopefulness of those taking part in the elections deserve most of the attention today. But spare a thought for all the Naomis, Fisks, Alis and Chomskys for whom today is a bleak one indeed. They can't believe it's actually happening. Wanted anything but.
