MORE FROM IRAQ: Via Austin Bay: “Major players are coming more and more to realize that dialog, alliances, common interests and just plain politics is the way to win– not violence, intimidation and terror. So this [lesson] is apparently slowly ‘sinking in’ in our confused and frightened Iraqi mentality.”

On the other hand, the celebratory gunfire is “much worse” than after the last election . . . .

UPDATE: Another report from Iraq, here.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Omar has video of celebrating Iraqis. They’re dancing, not shooting.
