It is pretty crude. I am sure they have things like this all over the middle east. There is a lot of hatred there. It just reminds you of all the celebrations you saw on TV following the atacks.

As crude, heinous, vile, disgusting, etc. as this mural is, what do you expect? Sadaam's regime is as anti-American as anyone in the world. Of course they are going to have as much "kill the Zionist aggressors" propoganda displayed as possible.

I have a problem with ClydeTri's original post, though - he references "nice people, those Iraquis" (in my opinion, should have been named "nice people, those Republican Guard ... or loyal Ba'ath, etc.). This wasn't an act of Iraqi civilians - it was from the military, hung in a military institution. Don't play into Sadaam's manipulation machine and use it to drum up a bunch of anti-civilian sentiment.
