Not us. Them. In Fallujah. They didn’t have fireworks, so they burned the U.S. and the Israeli flags. Yup, there’s a victory celebration worth the lives and treasure we poured into Iraq. We sure build a modern democracy ready to join the civilized nations. Won’t be any more trouble in that part of the world.
Hundreds of Iraqis set alight U.S. and Israeli flags on Wednesday as they celebrated the impending pullout of American forces from the country in the former insurgent bastion of Fallujah.
Shouting slogans in support of the “resistance,” the demonstrators held up banners and placards inscribed with phrases like, “Now we are free” and “Fallujah is the flame of the resistance.”
