If I may, this is my response to those who claim the pulling down of Hussein's statue was mere propaganda.
I view the images of those Iraqis gleefully pulling down the statue the same way I view the horrific scenes of children in hospitals as the result of the war. Does it play to your emotions? Absolutley. Does it tell the whole story of what is going on? No, it is only one small part of the bigger picture. Did it really happen? Yes, it certaintly did
