Cheers in Safwan Yes, people

Cheers in Safwan

Yes, people are feeling liberated (at least near Basra) as coalition troops advance:

"In Safwan, just across the border with Kuwait in southern Iraq, civilians greeted the First Marine Division with cheers today as they entered the town. After capturing the town, some of the marines pulled down pictures of the Iraqi leader, Saddam Hussein."
