Iraqi Liberation Day


Today, April 9, is Iraqi Liberation Day. It's the day the Saddam statue fell, signaling to the Iraqis that they would no longer live in fear of Saddam Hussein's oppressive, murderous regime.

Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad and General George Casey released a statement.

Families United for Our Troops and Their Mission is commemorating Iraqi Liberation Week, April 9 - 15.

Captain's Quarters has a guest post from Merrilee Carson, a Gold Star Mother, who writes about her son Michael who died while serving in Iraq.

Gateway Pundit writes about Iraqis marching for unity in their country.

Sister Toldjah has a moving tribute to Dustin Derga, a fallen marine who was proud to serve his country, from his father.

The Officers' Club honors Iraqi Liberation Day with this picture.

Michelle Malkin has a roundup of other bloggers who are also commemorating today.

Update: Joe of Joe's Dartblog sent me his pictoral contribution to Iraqi Liberation Day.

I strongly urge everyone (if you haven't done so already!) to check out the Families United website. If you support our troops and their goals and objectives then you will appreciate everything this group is doing. God bless all of our Gold Star families!

"Three years ago on this day, men and children kept small by a dictator grew, even as a bronze gaud glorifying the monster was cut down by their hands." This final quote on Joe's Dartblog is a beautifully written explanation of why Iraqi Liberation day - and every day that this nation continues to have hope and freedom - is important. These people, oppressed for decades - are now able to grow as a people and as individuals without fear and with a renewed confidence. Thank you to our troops and those around the world who have assisted in this effort.
