To me, from these photos, I'd guess Saddam is in better health now than he was before the war. Looks like his diet has improved -- whole foods, fresh veggies. He's a strange man with a lot of different motivations, obviously. Dresses like a Tuscany sportsman, likes American fanstasy art, likes old biblical themes, eats the mediterrean diet, and is a ruthless murderer and despotic ruler.

THE PRESIDENT: "Good riddance. The world is better off without you, Mr. Saddam Hussein. I find it very interesting that when the heat got on, you dug yourself a hole and you crawled in it. And our brave troops, combined with good intelligence, found you. And you'll be brought to justice, something you did not afford the people you brutalized in your own country."

Thank you once again. Holy cow, I never saw those morgue photos of Qusai and Uday. I'm not sure I want to know what's in that plastic bag. (But having posted the question, I'm sure someone is going to tell me!)

This is such a happy week for conservatives!

Re: those pro-Saddam rallies. The NY Times reports...
In Tikrit, about 700 people rallied in the center of town Monday chanting ``Saddam is in our hearts, Saddam is in our blood.''

U.S. soldiers and Iraqi policemen yelled back: ``Saddam is in our jail.''

There are probably about 12 AKs in Iraq, and the AP and Reuters boys carry them around as props for the locals to pose with to increase the chance that their photos get published.

(Not really, but their lenses certainly have an affinity for the guns, don't they?)

In the bag is the steel plate that was used to reinforce the fibula of one of the kids (Oday, I think.) They (US Forces) used the plate with the serial number as reinforcing verification of nailing the spawn.

I was thinking the SAME thing...

Why is it that EVERYBODY in that country seems to have an automatic weapon(not that I'm against them)and feels free to shoot them off in the streets? Sure, they point up, but what goes up has gotta come down somewhere.

Reminds me of Detroit.

Hm.

While it's good to see Iraqis happy at the news, it is a sick culture that has the men over on one side shooting bullets into the air (which come down and kill/hurt lots of people) and on the other side clueless women sliding their tongues in and out of their mouths "ulululating" (or whatever it's called) like dumb puppies.

Crass, yes, but it does seem like a 5th Century culture....

Having spent yesterday journeying from Vienna back to the US, I saw the news stands with all of these headlines.

One major point, the European view of the Iraq war is exactly the same as all demonRAT candidates(except Lieberman). Are the candidates mimicking the Europeans, or vis-versa? I don't know, but whatever it smells like treason to me.

Interesting which newspapers printed a cleaned up version of Saddam, instead of what he actually looked like when captured.

And the Chicago Sun Times soesn't even have the story on the front page. At least not where you can see it.

As a practicing (will probably never get it right) Christian, I know this is
a bad thought...
I generally don't believe in extra-terrestrials having visited our planet,
but when I see some of the mania in the Arab/Muslim world, I can't help wondering...

Maybe the Borg aren't a fictional creation.

We left them in possession of their individual weapons. It really chaps my A$$ that they can have full auto AKs with folding stock, flash suppressor, bayonet lug and full capacity magazine. And many Americans can't! Not even a semi-auto version. No americans can have newly manufacutured one, semi or select fire, but Iraqies can? What's wrong with this picture.
