An Iraqi Man Created A Statue In Honor of the U.S. Troops and Our Fallen

I posted this back in Dec 2007. In light of the Iraqi President thanking President George W. Bush for liberating the Iraqi people, I thought of this article:

This statue currently stands outside the Iraqi palace, now home to the 4th Infantry division. It will event-ually 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.
