Roadside bomb hits U.S. convoy just hours after the last of our combat troops leave Iraq

Not all Iraqis think the U.S. pull-out is a good idea.

I wonder if the remaining U.S. troops there are armed?

An Iraq story our media ignores.

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 , Texas

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.  H/T Chris
