UK tank unseats 'Saddam' in small Iraqi town
More Iraqi's glad to be liberated.....

A crowd of about 500 Iraqis cheered on Wednesday after Britain's Desert Rats unit demolished a five-metre high, five-ton bronze statue of President Saddam Hussein.

Lance Corporal Graeme Church said the British forces were shocked by the response they received when they began to knock down the statue.

"As soon as the locals saw what we were doing, they started coming out to watch," said the 27-year-old from the north-eastern English city of Middlesborough.

"It was as though over the years the statue had helped to put a stranglehold on the whole town and by its destruction the people had been emancipated.
