Honestly, this is it! The payoff begins now. Marines Help Topple Statue; Residents Loot Baghdad

The Iraqi people, free from tyranny are expressing their own dissatisfaction and reclaiming their own lives. We pulled down the statues and people around Baghdad are defacing Saddam’s image without fear of retribution. As I’m sure that some Iraqis oppose Saddam only out of fear of the United States forces, I’m sure that even more of them are doing so despite the possiblity of violent Saddam loyalists, who have acted violently against them. There also those who support our continued presence but with future limitations. It is Iraq, after all, not one of our territories.
