Hussein has had approximately 40 of his own relatives murdered.

2001 Amnesty International report: "Victims of torture in Iraq are subjected to a wide range of forms of torture, including the gouging out of eyes, severe beatings and electric shocks... some victims have died as a result and many have been left with permanent physical and psychological damage."

Human Rights Watch: Hussein's 1987-1988 campaign of terror against the Kurds killed at least 50,000 and possibly as many as 100,000 Kurds.

Refugees International: "Oppressive government policies have led to the internal displacement of 900,000 Iraqis"

Iraq's 13 million Shi'a Muslims, the majority of Iraq's population of approximately 22 million, faced severe restrictions on their religious practice

FBI: Iraqi government was involved in a plot to assassinate former President George Bush during his April 14-16, 1993 visit to Kuwait.

And the liberals in this country are all claiming that our President is a worse mass murderer than this piece of sh*t. Maybe they should read a book or two before they open their mouths and demonstrate how ignorant they all are.

If the USENET Libs can't read, give them THIS to watch. It is from 'The Torturers of Saddam's Abu Ghraib' carried by aei.org. There is no need for any here to watch it. It is EXTREMELY graphic.

As far as libs are concerned, not all victims are created equal.

I think they should write down all the ways he killed people on slips of paper and put them in a hat. Let him know what they are and have him draw one. Exectution by whatever method he used on others. Then he doesn't know until the last minute. He can sweat it out thinking about what he did to all those poor people.

And I suppose all those human rights groups that were documenting Saddamn's atrocities were tools of George Bush, too.

Jeez louise, those people need to use their noggins for something besides a hat rack.

TV news said that Gerald Ford thought the Iraq war a big mistake. Would have been better to let Saddam Hussein continue with his mass murders and hideous tortures? Would have been better to let the terrorists continue to use Iraq and Afghanistan as training grounds and safe havens?

Many Americans, including old Presidents, have lost their sense of right and wrong. They are even afraid to use our military power to protect the United States. What will it take, several more "9/11's" to wake the brain-dead?

A liberal journalist appeared on Fox (I forget his name - Juan something?) and said, "at least Saddam held the country together". !!!
Fred Barnes had a great, immediate response: "so did Hitler and Stalin".

I guess Michael Savage was right when he said that liberalism IS a mental disorder.

What Saddam did to his people: Iraq Mass Graves

What about in between those catastrophic evil deeds? Don't forget Saddam "at rest":

Saddam, a married man, enjoyed picking out young girls on the street or in restaurants, and having them ripped from their families and brought up to his place for sex. Once they got there, Saddam's servants would dress them in his chosen dress and makeup (he liked a slutty look) and make them lie abed and wait for his attack. Some of these girls were murdered after.

Some of the fathers and brothers tried to stand up to Saddam and fight for their daughter or sister. Saddam would imprison, torture, or kill them. One of his favorites was to rape the daughter in front of the father.

He enjoyed good food and lots of J&B scotch.

He treated those who worked for him very evenhandedly. When they brought him good news or pleased him, he'd give them the newest luxury car and tons of cash. When they didn't, well, they were simply tortured and/or killed.
