A Tale of Two Pictures

"It was the best of times. It was the worst of times..."

Here's a picture from the anti-American protest held in a square in Baghdad. Notice the crowd. Looks like a fairly good turnout for a protest.

Now let's travel back in time to four years ago, during those heady days when the "Decider in Thief" and his neoconmen were seemingly riding high and whose "coalition of the swilling" had just "conquered" Baghdad. Among other spectacles, the television screens in the US were graced with the demolition of the Saddam Hussein statue in that same Baghdad location. Notice the "crowd" on hand on that day. Not exactly what I'd call an overwhelming show of support for the invasion.

Nerdified link. Next time anyone whines about opportunity lost in Iraq, we would do well to remind them that there was no opportunity to begin with.
