Iraq's children returned to school yesterday for the start of a fresh academic year with a new syllabus that has all but erased Saddam Hussein from its history.
After two years of debate, the education department has completed textbooks to replace those that portrayed the past purely from a Ba'athist view.
However, in a tribute to the sensitivities of post-Sadam Iraq, the revised version of history is, on some subjects, as partial and shot through with gaps as the old.
Baghdad now no longer wins the Iran-Iraq war nor confronts the evil of Zionism alone. Primary schools will not have to teach reading with phrases such as "I love Saddam".
