Marine who helped stage toppling of Saddam Hussein has doubts a decade later

Staged toppling of Saddam's statueThere was no doubt in the young Marine’s mind when he clambered to the top of the enormous statue of Saddam Hussein, tied a noose around its neck — and tore down the graven image.

Brooklyn-born Edward Chin continued to believe in the mission, even as the U.S. death toll mounted in Iraq, even as Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction turned out to be a mirage. Now, 10 years after Chin signaled to the world that Baghdad had fallen, he is not so certain.

“What did we go there for?” Chin asked. “As Marines, we just do our jobs. We go where we are told. We hope that our leaders make the right decisions.”

But the Iraq that’s cozying up to Iran and still splintered by sectarian strife is not the country his buddies died for, he said.

TVNL Comment: Chin is 'not so certain'? He's still wondering. After ten years of death and destruction and torture and lies, he's still wondering?  Did Edward Chin admit that he was used to sell an illegal war?  Did he admint that the army STAGED the toppling of the statue for propaganda purposes?  It's taken TEN years to simply wonder why so many died?  How sad is that?
