THE IRAQ WAR MONUMENT
The First NATIONAL Iraq Monument
"The Iraq War Monument" is dedicated
to our Military servicemen/women who
fought in the Iraq Wars.
Posted: June 9,2017
I, for one, am thankful for the power of the Internet.
I would never see this in or on any of this country's main media outlets.
Shame on them.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS? OR WHERE THIS IS?
This statue currently stands outside the Iraqi palace, now home to the 4th Infantry division.
It will eventually be shipped home and put in the memorial museum in Fort Hood, Texas.
The statue was created by an Iraqi artist named Kalat,
who for years was forced by Saddam Hussein to make the many
hundreds of bronze busts of Saddam that dotted Baghdad .
Kalat was so grateful for the America 's liberation of his country;
he melted 3 of the heads of the fallen Saddam and made the statue
as a memorial to the American soldiers and their fallen warriors.
Kalat worked on this memorial night and day for several months.
To the left of the kneeling soldier is a small Iraqi girl giving
the soldier comfort as he mourns the loss of his comrades in arms.
Do you know why we don't hear about this in the news?
The media avoids it because it does not have the shock effect.
But we can do something about it.
We can pass this along to as many people as we can in honor
of all our brave military who are making a difference.
And please pass this on!
