At the end of 2006, we waited for Iraq to hang Saddam Hussein.  A year later or at the end of 2007, Iraq was a new place and you could hear it in the people’s voices:

“We like to live in peace and are glad that no one in Baghdad can call us terrorists. It has taken a long time but we appreciate the Americans.” (Shami Karim, a 27-year-old fruit stall holder quoted in Baghdad calm one year after Saddam’s death)

Here is a Mr. Hussein, another resident also quoted above:

“The Americans proved that ordinary life was possible here again.”

It was indeed a new Iraq!
