Last Dance at Baghdad Airport
In 2003, I saw this picture showing American troops dancing in Baghdad airport and I said to myself the US is not going to last long in Iraq.
War, these US troops soon discovered, is not fun. And the dancing stopped.
I hope that those kids got back to their families in the US in good health.
These kids, unlike their political leadership, are innocent and just want to have a good time.
By then hundred of thousands of Iraqis were killed either by US bombs or by US backed sanctions.
The Iraqis today are biting back in the most violent way, killing US troops and each other along the way.
