Now this article I found to be fascinating.
Should a statue of President Bush stand in Baghdad, I wonder what long term effects this would have on the fundamentalist climate thereover. If you don't know, in traditional Islam, any artistic rendering of an animate object is a grave sin. The Ba'athists are socialists, so the creation of statues to Saddam Hussein evinces this departure from radical Islam. Now, if that departure accepts a non-Muslim into such a category, it will be interesting to see how this evolves the social mind of such people.
