FALLUJAH, Iraq Hundreds of Iraqis set alight U.S. and Israeli flags on Wednesday as they celebrated the impending pullout of American forces from the country in the former insurgent bastion of Fallujah. Shouting slogans in support of the resistance, the demonstrators held up banners and placards inscribed with phrases like, Now we are free and Fallujah is the flame of the resistance. Surrounded by the Iraqi army, demonstrators carried posters bearing photos of apparent insurgents, faces covered and carrying weapons. They also held up pictures of U.S. soldiers killed and military vehicles destroyed in the two major offensives against the city in 2004.

How many are still in favor of sending our best and finest over there to die and save their sorry asses?????
So unworthy of our blood & treasure. Let them all burn.
Now it has a new meaning for me.
Never again do we shed a drop of American blood or a dollar of AMerican treasure for Muslims.
In Nov. 2004, we had to take Fallujah a SECOND time and lost 51 Marines doing it.
We should have given the Muzzies 24 hours to evacuate and then carpet bombed that nest of jihadis.
They could build New Fallujah next door to the craters.
I wish I had an Iraqi flag to burn in protest.
Hope they enjoy learning Farsi. F’em.
That is exactly the way I feel. Screw them!
So much for GWB’s plan to bring “Democracy” to these cretins
How about we just strafe them on the way out..........
When Iran takes over the oilfields call 1-800-kiss our azz.
When we leave and our money comes out with us, when their communities turn into free for all sh^% holes again, we'll remember this. They will revert to type and start murdering one another real quick.
I say, fine, we'll go and take our money with us. Bye!
As likely to succeed as a plan to domesticate sharks.
ah those cwazy muslims, they sure know how to party
At least they are not burning the corpses of butchered US contractors
The only political tool we should use to deal with Muslims of any significant concentration is the thermonuclear variety.
Gratitude, Muslim style.
Human debris. A lot of women in that photo, huh?
Quick, call Newt, he’s going to bring them to America to educate them about modernity so they like us.
Say, aren’t those two soldiers in the left of the picture ? Are they the nice Iraqi soldiers we just got finished training, provisioning and building nice bases for ?
Did we train them with our real tactics or fake ones ?
Looks like a very trustworthy group. Nice place to take a vacation. Do they have a Disney there ?
I wonder if you can make a flag out of woven detonation cord?
I’m thinking of “Burn Yankee-Flag Kits” shipped into the middle east by the thousands. A 20’ kill radius would be about right.
My thoughts also. The people doing this are radical Sunnis and are not going to fare well under a radical Shia regime.
Didn't see any women in them, but there appear to be two U.S. troops there, just the left of the U.S. Flag.
Stick it where the sun doesn't shine! Imagine.....our President invites these enemies to sit at his table!... I really wish we'd have left them under Saddam to do whatever he pleased with these people who haven't a clue how to measure the value of life nor gratitude of... I have no heart for those people anymoore because they would have it so..... Ranting does wonders for the heart and soul in such casses as this!
Lib....I’m so completely disgusted with the lot of them...including the woman they constantly throw out there for sympathy. Doesn’t work now for me.....I simply don’t care if they are brutilized or abused...to them it’s a lifestyle and I say let them keep it. They are a sadistic people who have no reason or sense of life and glory in death. I’m done with them entirely...let them rot in their own filth. Worse then the scum of the earth. Full of hate and care not for it otherwise.
.....two soldiers in the left of the picture
Enlarge that pic... The one without the helmet looks American, close cropped hair and what looks like a unit patch on his right sleeve....
We should send them a new tyrant just like Saddam. Maybe they’ll appreciate what we did for them.
what does an American look like?
I agree with you 1000%!
There was some small good that came from our intervention. The Kurds have mostly benefited (themselves) by being cut loose from the arabs. Whether they’ll be left alone to thrive is another matter but the start was good. My son deployed twice first to the N in a Kurdish area and then to the south with the arabs. He generally liked the Kurds and their time there was mostly peaceful b/c they (Kurds) didn’t put up w/ the crap going on in the arab areas. His second deployment was vastly different in a negative sense.
Good Luck, folks, you’re on your own now!!!!
So how many billions of dollars in aid will Obama keep pouring in after our troops leave? And how many “civilians” who will train them to fight us and the Israelis?
And how many of the guys in that crowd burning the flags are living on our welfare dollars?
Meanwhile, the Chinese and the French have gotten the oil that we fought for.
Burning “U.S. and Israeli flags”.... sounds suspiciously like it was orchestrated by Iran.
It’s OK. They’ll be killing each other in a month. They are better at it than we are.
Is there an Architect in the house?
Well said. Eff-um.
“Hundreds in Fallujah burn U.S. flag to celebrate troops pulling out of Iraq”
Isn’t hundreds of billions of dollars borrowed from the ChiComs for nation building great?
I can’t believe any one could be surprised by this. They are Muslims. They are our enemy. This is to be expected.
If only our troops would pile up all the Iraqi flags they could find, and torch them as they are leaving that miserable country! I know it won’t happen, though.
And we thought the slaughter in South Vietnam was bad....
In all fairness, it’s short-sighted to let a few hundred in a city thousands drive a wedge between the U.S. and the thousands there who helped us.
It was a staged event to piss off Americans to make sure we never bother to confront Islam again. Judging by the comments here on FR, seems like a lot of you are eager to do as the Islamists want.
Our next military involvement in Iraq should ONLY be from the air!
That is a stupid statement. Wake up!
Odd, there were no Israeli soldiers in Iraq.
No matter, if a third time is needed for Fallujah, don't waste blood and sweat, just nuke it (dial a low yield of course).
Bush made a terrible mistake and Obama continued on with it.
Taking out Hussein was a good idea. Sticking around and WASTING American lives and American money in trying to drag these 6th century savages into the modern world was a big mistake. And we are doing the SAME THING in Afghanistan.
Muslims are savages. Ungrateful, intolerant, violent savages. Islam is NOT a “peaceful” religion - its a death cult full of hate and ingratitude.
These people are not ready for democracy. Each and every one of the Arab Spring governments, generated by that fool Bush’s and that other fool Obama’s foreing policies will degenerate from a pro-western (sort of) military dictatorship, to an anti-western theocratic dictatorship.
Ask those damned fools Bush II and Obama if they are happy with their delusions now. My guess is Bush II is regretting it and Obama is quite happy with things as they turned out.
Hmmm...well, I wonder if they’d have been able to have a similar gathering to mock Saddam?
Probably not. For as much as this turns my stomach, they are actually exercising the freedom we gave them. It’s more ironic than anything that they can now do this (in the way they’re expressing themselves).
Nobody is better at killing than we are! Ireland thought they were fighting a “war” and those posers couldn’t even match the death rate of an average American city - what war were we supposedly fighting?
An American male of fighting age is safer in Iraq or Afghanistan than in the average urban American city.
Nobody kills like we do! Nobody!
Drop a Koran atop the blaze. That'll put it out. No oxygen escapes from that black hole of a book.
I don't think their C/O would have his U.S. troops anywhere near such a happy gathering. Iraqi troops have very similar uniforms now. However, that one sure looks like he's got an Airborne patch.
It is not at all short sighted, not in the least. Their agenda has not changed for centuries and it hasn’t changed now. As long as they adhere to the Koran,Muhammed, and their Imams the environment for hatred of all which is not Islam is not going to change.... The goal is for the world to be Islamic and that agenda continues be it here in the US via Stealth Jihad, or overseas....it’s that simple. Any of them who say otherwise are lying....
