Liberation

The moment the statue of Saddam came down, it should have been apparent to any objective observer that the Americans were in deep trouble.

This is the liberation of Paris:

This is the "liberation" of Baghdad, as U.S. Military PSYOPS staged the toppling of Saddam's statue for the benefit of American TV cameras.

Just to round out the story, here's Rumsfeld meeting with Saddam in 1983 as the United States provided military assistance, including WMD, to support Saddam's illegal invasion of Iran:

Got to your webpage through your extended discussion on evolution (Polipundit).

The French liberation may have something to do with the french being free several years earlier. Most Iraqi's have never known freedom. They are probably weary of the U.S. withdrawing (again).
