    DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS? OR WHERE THIS IS?

    THE STATUE

    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.

    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.

    That is something else, quite incredible for sure.
    Now if we can get Kalat to help out those Christians that are being singled out for harassment at a minimum and death.

    Iraq is turning for the worse, turning toward fundamental islam. If Iraqi's install a shria based law system, all will have been in vain.

    At least there's one Iraqi who is grateful that we got rid of Saddam Hussein.

    It is even possible that most Iraqis were happy to be rid of Saddam. But what is the final outcome?

    The next several years will tell whether our troops' sacrifices were justified.

    So far, it doesn't look too good -

    Iraq's war on Christians
    Oil and geopolitics prevent the United States and Western European countries from speaking out against what amounts to genocide against Christians in the Middle East.

    Op-Ed December 15, 2010|Tim Rutten
    As much of the world once more prepares to celebrate the birth of Christ, it is a melancholy fact that many of the most ancient churches established in his name are being pushed to the brink of oblivion across the region where their faith was born.

    The culprits are Salafist Islam's increasingly virulent intolerance, the West's convenient indifference and, in the case of Iraq, America's failure to make responsible provisions to protect minorities from the violent disorder that has persisted since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.

    When America intervened to overthrow Saddam Hussein, Iraq's Christians — mostly Chaldeans and Assyrians — numbered about 1.4 million, or about 3% of the population. Over the last seven years, more than half have fled the country and, as the New York Times reported this week, a wave of targeted killings — including the Oct. 31 slaying of 51 worshipers and two priests during Mass at one of Baghdad's largest churches — has sent many more Christians fleeing. Despite Prime Minister Nouri Maliki promises to increase security, many believe the Christians are being targeted not only by Al Qaeda in Iraq, which has instructed its fighters "to kill Christians wherever they can reach them," but also by complicit elements within the government's security services.

    The United States, meanwhile, does nothing — as it did nothing four years ago, when Father Boulos Iskander was kidnapped, beheaded and dismembered; or three years ago, when Father Ragheed Ganni was shot dead at the altar of this church; or two years ago, when Chaldean Catholic Archbishop Paulos Faraj Rahho was kidnapped and murdered; as it has done nothing about all the church bombings and assassinations of lay Christians that have become commonplace over the last seven years.

    The human tragedy of all this is compounded by the historic one. The churches of the Middle East preserve the traditions of the Apostolic era in ways no other Christian rites or denominations do. The followers of Jesus were first called Christians in Antioch Syria, and it was there that the Gospels first were written down in Koine Greek. For 1,000 years, the churches of Iraq and Syria were great centers of Christian thought and art. Today, the Christian population is declining in every majority Muslim country in the region and is under increasingly severe pressure even in Lebanon, where it still constitutes 35% of the population

    I heard a staggering stat this morning; about 1/2 of Iraq's Christians have left the country.

    Here is another article about the way muslims are treating Christians, I hope you read it. I would have reposted it but it's to long.

    Analysis: An exodus of Christians from Iraq



    Those Iraqi's that are grateful for freedom should stand and fight FOR Christianity!

    Too many , i'll ask one lady if i can display her photo , she has had 11 operations so far on her face after a attack on her church in Iraq left the padre dead and 9 worshippers as well she survived but was horribly disfigured and that's just one story ..

    But know this , i've only met one complaint about the allies and its the same one over and over , after the fall of saddam why did we back those who formed the Islamic militia's seems the first lot of folks we installed encouraged all these tin pot terrorists and Islamic groups fought back and it then degenerated into a bun fight where they fought each other more than they fought us , and Iran , just kept it all fuelled up

    i had thought this before but with so many of them saying its kinda fixed in my head ya know??

    we do stupid stuff eh ...

    Saw an interesting booklet about 20 years ago, called The Communist-Capitalist Alliance. Here it is online -

    Good reading for people who served during the Cold War.

    I wonder if the Globalists are just "playing" us again. Maybe it's time to bring all the troops home and keep them here, protecting our own country for a change.

    There's a few hundred in Congress too.

    If the country's founders were alive today, I think they would burn Washington D.C. to the ground and use the inhabitants for bayonet practice.
