liberated iraqis taunt saddam

until the blogosphere reaches iraq's general population, iraqis have taken to writing their opinions on the walls.

Samplings of the Arabic slogans include: "Down Saddam the infidel and long live Bush the believer!" "A thousand Americans but not one Tikriti," referring to residents of Hussein's hometown.

Many taunt the deposed dictator: "Saddam the dirty, the son of the dirty, in which septic tank are you hiding now?"

Hussein's family also comes in for abuse: "Where are your wife and daughters, Saddam? Are you pimping them in Jordan?"

"I like what I read," said Karal Nadji, a Shia street vendor who sells shoes. "We appreciate Mr. Bush. We're all waiting for the fruits of change." [source]

like mr. nadji, i, too, like what i read. i felt similarly when i saw this iraqi message to "human shields" a few months ago:

iraqis don't hesitate to taunt idiots

hooray for democracy, whiskey, and sexy! and free speech!
