In a very short time we had removed Soddam from power and sent into hiding. The mural depicts this by showing a large statue of him being brought down with a marine in the for ground standing watch. This says about the dream of political freedom that with the right movement of influenced followers, even the greatest goals can be achieved.

With the right support you can make anything happen. Operation Iraqi Freedom Copyright Michael Collins 2005, www.oasisofmurals.com Latorre, Guisela.
