About The Book 
As the Middle East caldron continues to boil and the Iraq experience is constantly called on as an example of failure, one little known story of the Iraq conflict has finally been told. While the military and civilian `Liberation` of Iraq is well known and well documented to have been full of mistakes compounded by a precipitous departure, there was a little known, but far more influential second `Liberation`. The other Liberation was led by nearly 2.5 million Americans and coalition forces that fanned out throughout a broken nation and loved a people, broken from 40 years of the terror of Saddam Hussein. One for nearly every one of the 25 million Iraqis, America`s best and brightest rebuilt hospitals, fixed the electricity, set up NGO`s, counseled the broken, repaired the roads and schools, helped write a constitution and set up a government. This `second Liberation` was an astounding success, bringing back a broken people from the brink. Beyond the on-the-ground help, personal relationships continue to this day; and as America did in Europe, Japan and Korea a nation has been launched into freedom. Was the Liberation of Iraq a failure? Did 4,888 give their lives in vain? Were another 32,000 permanently injured for a big mistake? Did 2.5 serve for nothing? The answer could not be a bigger NO! Things could have been done better, but in spite of all the mistakes and failures, as they always do, the best and brightest of America did what they do best – love a people. Stunned at the selflessness, faith and joy of the American troops and coalition forces, little by little the Iraqis stood up. As they travelled throughout the region, they repeated the `Liberation` they had experienced. contributing to the `Arab Spring` which continues to move the Middle East, even with all its faults, towards freedom. Asking an exhausted soldier in the middle of a dusty Iraq, “Why are you here?” He replies in the simplest way possible, “I just want the Iraqis to have what we have – I really love them.” It was this simple, but sincere love that touched the hearts of a broken nation, healed their brokenness, gave them hope and a way forward. Amir George is the author of the newly released book, LIBERATING IRAQ: The Untold Story of the Assyrian Christians, which is being presented to each American family that lost a loved one in Iraq.
