Iraqis Honor American Soldiers

Here’s good news from Iraq you probably didn’t hear

Below is a picture of Iraqi sculptor Kalat examining one of his newest creations — a statue of an American Soldier paying his respects to a fallen comrade.

According to reports, Kalat was forced by Saddam Hussein for years 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.

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.
