Thanks to Ashley for the find.

We stay till the jobs done.

A few quotes from all sides of the war….

“Never in the history of the world has any soldier sacrificed more for the freedom and liberty of total strangers than the American soldier.

“For it has been said so truthfully that it is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the agitator, who has given us the freedom to protest. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives that protester the freedom to abuse and burn that flag.” – Zell Miller (D) Georgia 2004

“The street was transformed into a swimming pool of blood.” – Shopkeeper Ahmed Hameed, witness to a car bombing in Baghdad that killed 140 people.

“I believe that the goal of a secure, stable and democratic Iraq is within reach.” – U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates

“This is a historic moment for Iraq, a day when Iraqis can hold their heads high because they are challenging the terrorists and starting to write their future with their own hands.” – interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi

July 24, 2003 – “Death is not enough. They should have been hung up on poles in a square in Baghdad so all Iraqis could see them. Then they should have died as people ate them alive.” – Baghdad businessman Khalil Ali after U.S. forces kill Saddam’s sons Uday and Qusay.

“The criminal little Bush has committed a crime against humanity.” – Saddam Hussein

“I think things have gotten so bad inside Iraq, from the standpoint of the Iraqi people, my belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators.” – U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney

try not to laugh at the embedded reporter in this video from BBC as he almost sounds like an American making fun of British reporters. He also makes very little sense.
