The End is Near

US Forces are gaining complete control of Bagdad.

And in the process, making a lot of Iraqis quite happy.

US tanks drove unhindered into public squares on the eastern bank of the Tigris for the first time, including the area surrounding the Palestine hotel, where the international media are based.

As word spread, people began congregating in the al-Fardus square in front of the hotel.

The cheering crowd began trying to pull down a huge statue of Saddam Hussein with a rope and a sledgehammer. An American armoured personnel carrier is now lending assistance.

All is becoming right in the world again.
