I guess we know now who they would vote for

The Viet Cong would have voted for him and now we know the peaceful islamofacists would, too.
"If the U.S. Army suffered numerous humiliating losses, [Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John] Kerry would emerge as the superman of the American people," said Mohammad Amin Bashar, a leader of the Muslim Scholars Association, a hard-line clerical group that vocally supports the resistance.
Superman? Does Mohammad Amin read EiP?
"American elections and Iraq are linked tightly together," he told a Fallujah-based Iraqi reporter. "We've got to work to change the election, and we've done so. With our strikes, we've dragged Bush into the mud."

Like Rusty said, Abu Jalal seems to understand what is going on in this election. But it does not seem he understands our soldiers and their families:
"They say there are 1,100 dead soldiers. That means 1,100 families hold grudges against Bush and hate him. There are 6,000 families whose sons were injured who hate Bush and will not re-elect him."
Yeah, you see Abu, that's not quite how it works around here. Most of those families are proud of the sacrifice their loved ones have given, and so are we. You just don't get it and that is why you will lose this war. It's NOT Vietnam, Abu, and we're NOT the Vietnam generation.
Mr. Bashar, a professor at Baghdad's Islamic University, said he and many of those who oppose the U.S. presence in Iraq were rooting for Mr. Kerry. "I think if Kerry wins, he's going to try to get world support and United Nations involvement," he said during an interview at Baghdad's Um al-Qura mosque. "You'll see a different situation in Iraq if the United Nations is involved."
You got that right, Professor Bashar. There would definitely be a different situation - much worse.
