That pro-Bush, America-loving Guardian published a piece on reactions of Iraqis to the US campaign to oust Saddam Hussein:
Afraid that the US and Britain will abandon them, the people of Safwan did not touch the portraits and murals of Saddam Hussein hanging everywhere. It was left to the marines to tear them down. It did not mean there was not heartfelt gladness at the marines’ arrival. Ajami Saadoun Khlis, whose son and brother were executed under the Saddam regime, sobbed like a child on the shoulder of the Guardian’s Egyptian translator. He mopped the tears but they kept coming.
"You just arrived," he said. "You’re late. What took you so long? God help you become victorious. I want to say hello to Bush, to shake his hand. We came out of the grave."
Yes, those Iraqis sure resent American "imperialism"…
Of course, the only retort the left will have is that it was all made up – even though the Guardian is one of the UK’s most leftist dailies.
