“The Americans Brought Us Rosy Dreams”

This is from Muayad Muhsin, the Iraqi artist of a painting of Rumsfeld.

“Rumsfeld’s boots deliver a message from America: `We rule the world,‘” Muhsin, 41, said in an interview. “It speaks of America’s total indifference to what the rest of the world thinks.”

Muhsin said he signed the painting in the middle, instead of the customary bottom corner, to avoid having it under Rumsfeld’s boots.

“The Americans brought us rosy dreams but left us with nightmares.

They came with a broad smile but gave us beheaded bodies and booby-trapped cars.”
