It is HOT in Baghdad right now. Polls have been open now for almost two hours. It's shaping up to be quite a busy day. I've heard at least two VBIEDs from my position, and multiple other IEDs and mortars impacting across the city. My guess is that the terorrists have decided to hit early and often to maximize the intimidation factor and make people think twice about going to the polls. Here's hoping it won't work . . .
