More cartoons

From The New York Times.

The second shows a pair of army boots on the plinth where the statue of Saddam Hussein used to stand and more boots around. Edward Wong tells us that this was from Al Bayyna al Jadidah, a conservative Shiite newspaper. Of more interest, Khalid W. Hassan, an Iraqi reporter for the NYT, in an Audio Slide presentation : 'We got rid of the statue 3 years ago,  we got rid of the tyranny, but... We have security problems, we have economic problems  We still have the problems. We didn't get rid of them yet.'

(The first reference, Chuckling Darkly in Iraq, is subscriber only now, but the Audio Slide Show: Iraqi Political Cartoons still seems to be accessible.)
