Saddam tells lawyers he faces death without fear
Reuters ^ | November 5, 2006

Posted on 11/04/2006 6:20:29 PM PST by West Coast Conservative

A defiant Saddam Hussein shrugged off a possible death sentence, saying he would die without fear and the US occupiers of his country would leave humiliated like they did in Vietnam, his lawyers said on Saturday.

They said a jovial and highly spirited Saddam chatted with them for more than three hours about the violence in Iraq and mounting US losses just hours before an expected death sentence on Sunday in his trial for crimes against humanity.

"the US occupiers of his country would leave humiliated like they did in Vietnam,..."

Thanks to the MSM, the Dems, and the CPSU-funded "peace groups". Vietnam was military victroy. Battle for battle, the South and its allies won. The Dems and their fellow traveller's pulled support for the Republic of Viet Nam in 1973 while the North had support from both the USSR and the PRC.

Sorry Saddam. The DemocRATS haven't won yet. You need to hold off on your goofy comments until after all the votes have been counted and the fat lady sings.

One goal of mine is to live at least one second later than you, you son of a bitch.

I'm starting to think that I just might do it.

Isn't that nice. Jovial and highly spirited. Let's hope there's a spring in his step and a smile on his face on the way to the gallows, then dawning awareness that this is for-real.

One thing for certain, Saddam won't be spending the most of two decades on death row with endless appeals.

Saddam,
Yuk it up with Reuters while you can. I hope the rope tightens slowly. BTW, your buddies are literally getting "drilled". And having their stinking brains extracted with hot, frayed rusty cable.

Tell people that want Rumsfield out, that that's just what happened in Vietnam, the politicos started running the war. So if they want another Vietnam, then call for Rumy to quit.

I had heard that his one request was that he be shot by firing squad instead of hung. Pretty sure he's going to get the rope though.

Hanging is a good start. Hanging, drawing and quartering would be a good idea. And while they're at it, they should do the same to Ramsey Clark.

I remember this movie with James Cagney as a hard-boiled criminal who's set to die on the electric chair. He shows no fear until he sees the chair, then he freaks out. A priest who tried to get him to change witnesses him as he screams over and over "I don't wanna die!"

Later, a group of teen gang members ask the priest, "So, did he turn chicken at the end?"

I said all that to say this:

I can imagine the guards who will hang Saddam sitting with grandchildren on their knees in the future, retelling the story of how "that pig Saddam cried like a baby when he realized his end had come".

If there were any true justice in this case we would see King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud of Saudi Arabia hanging right next to him. Which one do you think is more responsible for 9/11? Osama and Saddam are just the players...The al-Saud Royal Family is the Game.

"One of the major reasons given for the Sept. 11 attacks by Saudi terrorist Osama bin Laden was the presence of U.S. troops in the home of Islam's holiest sites, Medina and Mecca."

By March, April of 2003, all American troops were withdrawn from Saudi Arabia. A retreat...however you look at it.

There are some facts that many have chosen to overlook. One of them being that Saddam was a staunch ally of ours all through Reagans tenure as President and before. He fought a proxy war for us against Islamic Iran though he did so in an incompetent manner. Reagan distanced the U.S, from him after he used poisen gas in combat against the "human wave" tactics of the Iranian enemy. Then he used it to put down a Kurd uprising. We all saw the pictures. He was, is a brutal man. But how do you maintain power and control in a country with three different factions...each with plans to exterminate the other two and you, while you wage a war with Iran at the same time. I don't know...and it seems that our efforts to bring coheisiveness to Iraq are not all that effective to date, to say the least.

Saddam has become a kind of Goldstein character to many Americans. I know a lot of people hate him but I know at one time the United States considered a brutal secular dictator to be preferable to an Iranian type goverment of Islamic Mullahs. And now sharia law is ingrained into the Iraqi Constitution. Someone tell me what we have gained.

Pretty good. He will sweat the fear out of his eyeballs when the rope is applied to his rotten neck.

That's what the court has said all along. The rope. And he will not be so perky when he walks up the gallow steps.

"It's not about dying for your country. It's about making the other poor bastard die for his."

George S. Patton

He had it right. I don't care whether he fears death or not. I certainly don't and that's an honest fact. However, my intention is to see that those who oppose me die for the privilege.

I have no problem with putting a rope around Ramsey the commie's neck too. Sort of even the score a little for our NAM Vets. Of course that would just break poor widdle Hanoi John's heart...but so be it.

One statement stood out for me late last night. A reporter said that Saddam had said something about God and the reporter added this, "he did not care about God until this moment". I thought that was a telling remark. That may not be word for word but close.

I'LL BE HUNG BY CHRISTMAS

I'll be hung by Christmas
You can count on it
No socks or ties, no mistletoe
Just a noose that better fit

Christmas time will find me
Six feet down below
I'll be hung by Christmas
With a tag tied to my toe

Maybe you're right. If the Rats win they can run him for a Senate seat in Mass. He'd probably win hands down, after all he would have plenty of clowns like you to vote for him. Perhaps Pol Pot,Stalin,and Hitler were not so bad after all, perhaps they just had the wrong friends encouraging them. Better yet lets turn him loose and put him back in charge so he can kill another couple of hundred thousand people just to prove how evil the US is. That will show em. Will that make you feel better and all self righteous?

The really scary part will be when he wakes up in hell. I have no doubt he will know fear and wailing and gnashing of teeth then. The moment they slip that noose around his neck will turn him into a hysterical ,blubbering idiot too. Hell awaits you Saddam.

I wouldn't dare cross intellectual swords with you master. It is obvious that your grasp of the immense evil that is US foreign policy is no match for my poor powers. If only Carter could have had one more term I'm sure everything would have been just fine. Oh look I'm doing it again. BTW mom said we could have pizza if we piss you off real good. I still think Saddam can win in Mass. Oh rats I'm doing it again.
