CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Congratulating the people of Iraq on their resolve to vote in a national parliamentary election on March 7, 2010, in the face of adversity.

Whereas the people of Iraq held a national parliamentary election on March 7, 2010;

Whereas insurgent terrorists vowed to disrupt the election with a concerted wave of attacks;

Whereas there were a number of explosions in Iraq just before the polls opened;

Whereas Iraqis went to the polls defying the violence to demonstrate their commitment to democracy; and

Whereas the people of the United States respect and admire the people of Iraq for their courage and bravery: Now, therefore, be it

That Congress congratulates the people of Iraq on their resolve to vote in a national parliamentary election on March 7, 2010, in the face of adversity.
