Today, a protest against US occupation marked the occassion.
"In four years of occupation, our sons have been killed and women made widows," cried Ahmed al-Mayahie, 39, a Shiite from the southern city of Basra.
"The occupier raised slogans saying Iraq is free, Iraq is liberated. What freedom? What liberation? There is nothing but destruction. We do not want their liberation and their presence. We tell them to get out of our land."
Again I ask... Just who has benefitted from this war?
