Iraqis Finally Unite—Against the U.S.

Iraqis want Americans out of their country more than ever, as indicated by the recent mass protest in Najaf. But if you ask Joe Lieberman, the sight of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis chanting anti-American slogans and tearing apart our flag was just proof that the “surge” is working.
