No, that is an Iraq victory dance

Drudge is all wet on this one, as it Breitbart/AFP. They title it "Iraqis mock US soldiers and themselves on YouTube" and make statements like,
US soldiers are lampooned, policemen are shown as buffoons and Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr is irreverently cheered by penguins... Iraqis are turning more and more to You Tube to express their dark-edged humour.
It mostly reads just what it is, but the title and tone in places I think misses the major point. If you are our enemy, we are your worst nightmare - but if not, we are just a big bunch of goofs - I think the Iraqis are starting to figure that out; and that is good.

This isn't mocking; this is affection (and a little interested confusion too). Look at the videos on the left side of the link to Breitbart's site or do a YouTube search for "Iraq dancing" or some'n'other. It's all good.

I see victory; heck, just look at the below.
