…by Iraqi reaction to Baghdad’s Fall.” That’s the headline on this Associated Press report. Showing that for some people there is no end to delusion, a British “human shield” is quoted as saying, “Iraq was free until U.S.-led troops arrived.” It all depends, I guess, on what the meaning of “free” is. Her definition is apparently a bit different from the Iraqis’.
My favorite quote is from a Kuwaiti television reporter, who “called the Iraqi elation and their thanks to U.S.-led troops who rolled into the capital a ‘slap in the face’ to Arabs who had sided with Saddam.'” Some would say that the Arabs’ siding with Saddam was a slap in the face to the Iraqi people.
