Where are the cheering crowds?

So the crowds
are not cheering in Basra and we're wondering why. Well let's spell it out. In this part of the world the people cheer in the streets when they're told to.

When Saddam was in charge and he told the people to cheer they did.

When the Allies are in charge and we tell the people to cheer they will.

At the moment they're not sure who's in charge, so they don't know who to cheer for.

In future I'm sure we'll be told that the fighting is worth it because the burghers of Baghdad cheer our liberating troops to the echo. So on that logic surely the cheering for Saddam showed how much he was loved.
