At least the Iraqis are generally glad to see Saddham gone. Strange
that the people who fought the war, not the beneficiaries in Iraq,
are the ones upset about it. If you're unhappy about the intelligence,
why won't you blame the Iraqi exile we trusted so much and Clinton
for gutting the intelligence service during the eight year period
before Bush? Clinton had a chance to get Bin Laden, he had missiles
fired at an innocent pharmacy instead.
-----Subject: Fw: Very Cool Statue
This statue currently stands outside the Iraqi palace, now home to the
Infantry division. It will eventually be shipped home and put in the
memorial museum in Fort Hood, Texas.
The statue was created by an Iraqi artist named Kalat, who for years was
forced by Saddam Hussein to make the many hundreds of bronze busts of
that dotted Baghdad.
Kalat was so grateful for the Americans liberation of his country; he
3 of the heads of the fallen Saddam and made the statue as a memorial
the American soldiers and their fallen warriors. Kalat worked on this
memorial night and day for several months.
To the left of the kneeling soldier is a small Iraqi girl giving the
comfort as he mourns the loss of his comrade in arms.
Do you know why we don't hear about this in the news? Because it is
warming and praiseworthy. The media avoids it because it does not have
shock effect that a flashed breast or controversy of politics does.
we can do something about it. We can pass this along to as many
we can in honor of all our brave military who is making a difference.
