Tens of thousands of Iraqis draped themselves in the country's flags and marched peacefully through the streets of two Shia Muslim holy cities Monday to mark the fourth anniversary of Baghdad's fall.I will concede that Dick Cheney might have been right when he said we would "be greeted as liberators." But that lasted all of, what, a week?
Demonstrators were flanked by two cordons of police as they called for U.S.-led forces to leave, shouting "Get out, get out occupier!"
A lot can change in four years. Now that more Iraqis are dying in the streets on a daily basis than when Hussein was in power, who can blame them for being just a little upset?
