Was created by
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
Worked on this memorial night and day for several months.
To the right of the
Kneeling soldier is a small Iraqi girl giving the soldier comfort as he mourns the
Loss of his comrade in arms.
Know why we don't hear about this in the news?
Is heart warming
Avoids it because it does not have the shock effect.
Can do something about it.

Military who are making a difference.
Please pass this on!
