Iraqis — With American Help — Topple Statue of Saddam in Baghdad
"It was a historic moment: the people of Iraq conveying to the world that they are finally free of the brutal dictator who has maintained a vise grip on them for nearly 30 years.
"As the 40-foot statue fell, some threw shoes and slippers at it -- a gross insult in the Arab world.
"A group of Iraqi men later dragged the head of the statue down the street, taking turns riding on the gigantic head as others slapped it with their shoes."

Keep going!
