The terrorists are afraid

I know the MSM views stories like this as signs that terrorism is incredibly strong:

A suicide bomber attacked a police station Saturday in a Kurdish town, killing eight people, and insurgents blasted polling places in several cities on the eve of landmark elections in which the president acknowledged many Iraqis will not vote because of fears for their lives.
I view it as the opposite, though. This is the last ditch effort of an organization that knows its day is over when the people take power. I remain very hopeful that the Iraqi people, who have dealt with so much over the last two and a half decades, will resoundingly inform the terrorists that democracy is the victor. UPDATE: Along the same lines -- i.e., the terrorists' violence is in direct response to their fear that the Bush doctrine sounded their death knell -- I found this great post at Power Line.
