"We Vow to Wash the Streets of Baghdad with the Voters' Blood"

So... would you vote?

Background on threats to Iraqi voters from yesterday's New York Times.

I mean the question seriously. If you were an Iraqi, would you vote, given the threats of violence at polling places and retribution for those who participate? Remember that the insurgents are already identifying people who work for Americans or the new government, and killing them and their families.

I think we'd all like to think we'd vote. But realistically? Would you? Why or why not?
