December 15th in history

As millions of Iraqis in Iraq brave terror threats, as local insurgents put down their weapons to vote, and Iraqi ex-pats around the world vote to make this day an important day in history lets look at other events that happened on December 15th.

1832, Alexandre Eiffel is born. His creation truly proves the point beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

1964, Canada formally adopts the Maple Leaf as the symbol for their national flag.

1989, Panama under Manuel Noreiga declares war on the US. Noreiga ends up in Club Fed.

I am pretty sure December 15, 2005 will become the most important event on this list. For once a country in the Middle East, that is not Israel, is selecting their government by the ballot and not by the gun as Saddam did over thirty years ago. Lets support the Iraqis as they start to operate a democratic government of the people by the people for the people and applaud them.
