Underlining the sense among the members of the US 3rd Infantry Regiment that their occupation of the enemy's lair was a symbolic victory, Captain Chris Carter, of Watkinsville, Georgia, said: "I do believe this city is freakin' ours."

This is what angers me, and I am sure many (besides the obvious anti-war sentiments) is that the palaces might have been symbols of Saddam, but the city is not.

There is a lack of respect for the people, and plenty of ignorant comments made about one of the most historical cities in the world.

I just don't get it...
