Woudln't it be nice if al Jazeera showed these types of pictures, rather than only casualties? They seem more interested in whipping the Arab world into an anti-American fervor than showing how horrible of a dictator Saddam actually was (I will use was from now on, because he's toast).

Excellent, excellent post. You should post a "Faces of Liberation" thread regularly, every day, kind of like the "Gotta See This" posts. Screw the leftist media for not showing us these more.

Man, that picture of the little girl in the black shawl with the American flag is a winner. What a beautiful child.

I don't think a panty shield would be happy right now with all those smiling faces. There's something about that lady's smile and gesture that shows SHEER JOY!!

These photos signify that President George W. Bush's payday has come. These smiles, this joy--especially of the children--confirms the rightness of his and our cause.

Knowing how easily President Bush tears up over such things, I can well imagine his reaction. I know what my reaction is.

"Man, that picture of the little girl in the black shawl with the American flag is a winner. What a beautiful child."

Uday can't get his filthy hands on her or anymore children in Iraq. (Can you imagine all the horror stories all the people could tell about the regime, after not being able to do so for such a long, long time?)

I just heard the story of that last one. It seems as an Iraqi fled Saddams regime twelve years ago. He served with the Marines as an interpreter when they moved into his home town. That's him being hugged as he is welcomed home after all these years.

The last picture gets me....the one Iraqi hugging the soldier and the older man looking like he giving thanks and about to cry.

That can't be faked.

You know, not to be a wet blanket or anything, but I'm beginning to suspect that Arabs will wave and smile and shout for whomever they perceive to be most powerful at the time. I wonder if it means anything to them either way, whoever's the top dog, grin and show him your tummy, take what you can get and then get back out of way. If another dog comes and beats your top dog, better run up and lick his face, wag your tail, grin and show him your tummy.

Exempting, of course, those who've actually lost family members to torture and murder. But these folks way on the outskirts... how much contact did they ever have with the Ba'ath party?

Oh, I know, I'm just being a grouchy anti-Arab. But having seen them in action over the years I really DON'T have a warm, fuzzy feeling about any of them.

I don't think that's true -- remember all the government-organized pro-Saddam rallies held before the liberation began? People would cheer, because they had no choice -- but they were noticably apathetic and even glum. Contrast that to the pure joy in these photos...

Everyone needs to bookmark this page and any time you hear of an editorial, read a newspaper article or see a nasty remark on another site of how we are "bogged down in Iraq" or "it was for oil" or "the Iraqi's are resisting the American's or Birt's" or "it was an unjust war" send them a link to this page!!

BTW: I am watching a report on the British walk over in Basra and as they panned the cheering crowd I just saw one little kid (8/9 years old) wearing a T-shirt with "USA" on it!

Every time I see photos of grateful, liberated Iraqis, I can't help thinking we should make them honorary Americans while we strip citizenship from every single leftist in this country opposed to the war. Just one of these smiling, happy Iraqis is worth more than all of our leftists put together.

Compare this photo to all the sick, twisted anti-American protestors who burn our flag. My contempt for the Left knows no bounds. They have proven without a doubt that they are evil incarnate.

By the way, I invite all Virginian Roman Catholics (and anybody else so inclined) to print and send copies of these to the disgraceful Bishop of the Richmond Diocese. Challenge him to call these pictures immoral and unjust.

Bishop Sullivan.

He can shove his black ribbons up his gilded ass.

Do right-wingers lose their citizenship too if they opposed the war?

Just because they opposed the war doesn't mean they deserve to lose their citizenship. Misguided and willfully ignorant, yes, but treasonous, no.

The people who call this war "illegal", "unjust", "immoral", and "illegitimate" are more than just anti-American. If they were solely anti-American, they could still feel joy at seeing these oppressed, brutalized people finally liberated and able to step out into the sunlight without fear. But they are more than just anti-American. They are evil, and that's the bottom line. This war is being fought against evil, and they have chosen to oppose the war because they support the evil we are fighting against. Those who support evil and condemn good are evil themselves.

Maybe you should read my post again. You apparently missed the fact that it's directed at leftists who oppose the war.

I believe you are correct, at least to a certain degree (some of them are just really, really stupid).

Here's another thread of pictures compiled:

Is Pat Buchanan evil? Or perhaps just misguided?

There were some reasonable anti-war arguments, but they have all been proven useless by this war of liberation. But using the term evil to describe all who opposed the war, or the way the war was entered into, removes the possibility of intelligent discussions about future issues. "How can we talk to the evil?" I'd prefer to just say they were wrong.
