I just saw it come down. It was INCREDIBLE. The second it hit the ground Iraqis swarmed on top of it and where cheering and jumping up and down on the statue. It's wonderful to see the happiness these people are expressing as they are finally freed from the opression of Saddam.

Statue toppled was pretty lame, should have shot it with a tank round.

the tank round would have been ever so sweet. but i think the toppling of the statue is more symbolic, and thats what the Iraqis wanted. LMAO at how they swarmed that dam thing when it hit the ground.

HooRah!!

Yup the Marines pulled it down with their tank. I think the oppression for the Iraqi people is finally over. I hope they are happy and grateful. I would be. As for all of the looting, good for them. They have been deprived for so long and now have the opportunity to take what is rightfully theirs in the first place. Good for them!!

Hell, yes.
LET THE LOTING BEGIN!
Normally, I hate looting, but in their case...more power to em!
They are obviously happy and grateful! The cheering and high fiving of our troops is awesome.

I think, putting a GPS transmitter on his head would have been better. 8 mins later kaboom. Just think all the war haters said we would be hated there. Most of the Iraqis are more grateful than some of our own fellow americans, sad.
