The regime that ruled Iraq for 23 years, residents of this city realized yesterday morning, was apparently gone. So they took to the streets, shredding Saddam Hussein posters, toppling Hussein statues, looting Hussein offices.
Jubilant Iraqis greeted US troops with cheers, victory signs, and flowers. Weeping Iraqi elders kissed grinning US soldiers. A few Iraqi men, apparently caught up in the moment, rushed into the street clad only in underwear to greet passing US troops.
