The article reports on the Arab world's responses to the fall of former President Saddam Hussein's regime in Iraq. In the beginning, many Arabs did not believe the fall of Baghdad. As the fall pushed the Arab world in a state of shock, shame, denial and depression, crazy rumors, wishful thinking and conspiracy theories made rounds. American invasion has widened Arab hatred towards America. No one is buying the theory that the U.S. invasion was meant for liberation of Iraqis from tyranny.
