Back in December 2006, the "Blame the US" crowd had additional material, the execution of Saddam.
It is true that some Iraqis were sad that Saddam was executed. This is not a surprise.
However, the "Blame the US for everything" international media did not remind its readers and viewers that today's Iraqis have a chance to express their grievances or discontent with a governmental decision.
This is what happens when you have 3 elections and a government.
No one enjoyed that right during Saddam's reign. In fact, the mass graves are proof of that reality.
