The Statue


This statue currently stands outside the Iraqi palace, now home to the 4th Infantry division. It will eventually be shipped home and put in the memorial museum in Fort Hood , TX.

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 Saddam that dotted Baghdad.....
Kalat was so grateful for the Americans liberation of his country; he melted 3 of the heads of the fallen Saddam and made the statue as a memorial to 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 soldier comfort as he mourns the loss of his comrade in arms.

I bet it never appeared in the NY Times, Time Magazine, the St. Pete times. Do you know why we don't hear about this in the news?
Because it is heart-warming and praise worthy..

The media avoids it because it does not have the shock effect – and they take the position that nothing positive can ever be reported about the fall of Hussein in Iraq. Heaven forbid that people might begin to think that Bush had a legitimate position on the war and that something good came from it. Heck our own TOTUS (Teleprompter of the U.S) could not even say we were winning the War and the Surge worked. The TOTUS, Barry is the last thing our Military needs. He has despised our own Military during his life. He puts up a front now for Political purposes. Some of us knew all along that Barry, the TOTUS was Anti-American.

But we can do something about it. We can pass this along to as many people as we can in honor of all our brave military who are making a difference.

Hat Tip to George & Jim.

This is very heartwarming, positive true story. These libs won't give Bush credit for doing anything good. Bush helped liberate multitudes of Iraqi citizens and now Biden is saying Obama deserves the credit. Gee... That is one heck of a revisionist history. Both Biden and Obama vehemently opposed the surge. I will pass this along. Yes, many positive things did come from the Iraq war.

Beautiful story. Thanks for sharing. (I can't tell you how many of my stories weren't published for the same reason... and I'm a reporter from Iraq.)
