Iraqis on the Election

In another post from Iraq The Model, Omar (the author) quotes Iraqis and Arabs on the (at that time) upcoming U.S. election, taken from an online poll. Arabs, he says, "showed distrust in the American system" and were more likely to favor Kerry, while Iraqi respondents strongly supported Bush. Some Iraqis quoted in the post:
There will be a great competition between the two candidates but I expect Bush to win. As for what will happen for Iraq, I believe who started the war is the only one who will finish it. Bush has toppled Saddam the tyrant and I'm sure that some Arab rulers are afraid that their fate will be like Saddam's.
Rasoul Jamil-Iraq

Victory will be for Bush because he works to secure the interests of his country and this is what the American voters want. I don't wish Bush to win because I like him, but because I hate the Arab dictatorships that he terrorized when he toppled Saddam.
Saif Ali-Nassyria-Iraq

Most Iraqis favor Bush because he needs to finish what he started, while Kerry might bring the Ba'athists and Saddam back to power.

President George W. Bush will win and the "Big Middle East" will become a reality and all dictatorships will fall.
Karhad Karmity-Holland [oops - this person isn't from Iraq! Nice quote, though.]

I'm not very informed about Bush or any other candidate but logic says that this is the president who will save the world from terrorism and fanatics. President Bush is always serious in his words and does not back of if he sees in it the common interests of his country, like what he did in Iraq. By God's will he will win and I'll be the first one who congratulate all who wish him to win.
Al Muhannad Al Baka'a-Baghdad-Iraq

Bush has won in Iraq and Afghanistan and changed their regimes, and now his role is over and it's time for Kerry to finish the job and stabilize the conditions in both countries in addition to start the efforts to topple the regimes in Syria and Iran, and thus the "Big Middle East" project would be completed.

Ok, that last guy doesn't know much about John Kerry.
