    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.

    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.

    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.

    And Please pass this on!

    That is very cool. Much respect for Kalat. :D

    And much infuriation at the news media for not showing the American Public this sort of love and admiration that the Iraqi people have for the effort to free them from the most savage butcher of modern times. :mad:

    Very heartwarming!!

    Thanks Jo,

    JD

    And to believe that there are people who think we aren't welcome over there. This proves it, that and seeing pictures and videos of little kids running out to meet American soldiers.

    How about this.

    1 general walks into he studio and with 50 4th id troops armed to the teeth stops and says thank you for doing this but we are not going to be paying you so much money. At that time in sync everyone racks the charging handles on their M-16. Then General does an about face and walks out being followed by all the troops.
