We'll see how it goes in 20 years. Jim Morrison's or Saddam Hussein's grave. Which will attract the tourists?
Where's MOAB or AC-130 when one needs it?
He should have been cremated and his ashes blown over the entire land. Why in the world would they create a monument to this monster that people can visit? Stupid!
that would be thousands fewer democrats in America
Sounds just like Detroit or Trenton to me.
Soon to be the decomposed leader.
Dozens of relatives and other mourners
Well, was it dozens or thousands? Media has a funny way of rounding. I hope they took pictures of all who attended.
But then no one would know where to put the hog rinds......
Then came another voice: "Let him swing for three minutes."
Alright, who said that?
I condemn the fact that you are using valuable air, and I consider it wasteful.
I hope intelligence types are taking names/pics of all these pro-Saddam demonstrators. They're out of their ratholes for the mourning of their dear leader.
ramsey clark and the rest of the lib/dems are still at the gravesite weeping and burning incense!!!!
And MILLIONS flock to the internet to see his sorry a$$ get hung.
How out of touch can the AP be?I assume from the tone of the article that i'm supposeed to sympathise with the mourners?Good greif.
I'll bet a weeks pay they will be having vacations planned on holiday's to go visit the " shrine". It will be treated like all the other mosques and shrines in the country. Just another target for the opposite denomination. One guy will piss on it an another will bow and cry. Then the shooting will start. Within 2 years the Shiite's will have to dig him up and destroy the bones.
Headline *I'd* like to read.
Bingo! Good post! You just took the wind right out of the sails of the mourning jugheads down at the DNC's Ass. Press. LOL! I love it!
Trenton? I was born there. What's it like now? Is it similar to Dearborn?
December 30th will become a new holiday for Iraq.
""In my opinion, something big is going to happen," said Earp, of Colorado. "There will be a response. Probably not today because they know we are looking for one, but soon.""
A true rocket scientist, here!
"He's gone, but our problems continue," said the Shiite Muslim, whose uncle was killed in one of Saddam's many brutal purges. "We brought problems on ourselves after Saddam because we began fighting Shiite on Sunni and Sunni on Shiite."
So ... at least one person in Baghdad understands.
Is there a line set aside for those who wish to urinate upon the grave?
Be worth the trip....
Screw Saddam and everyone in Iraq except for our folks. We should have never allow the American military to go anywhere in the world to fight the moslems unless we are prepared to get medieval. We need to make sure that nobody will mess with us because they know we will destroy them.
Used hog rinds, I hope. Anything else would be wasteful.
Knew I wouldn't have top scroll far to see this.
I was about to say,"I wouldn't want to smell that grave in after a week or so.
Might just prevent people frrom kneeling and weeping!
"I condemn the way he was executed and I consider it a crime," said 45-year-old Salam Hassan al-Nasseri".
I really don't think that a urine soaked ground will stop a mooslime from kneeling before his/her favorite demon.
When Beethoven passed away, he was buried in a churchyard. A couple days later, the town drunk was walking through the cemetery and heard some strange noise coming from the area where Beethoven was buried. Terrified, the drunk ran and got the priest to come and listen to it. The priest bent close to the grave and heard some faint, unrecognizable music coming from the grave. Frightened, the priest ran and got the town magistrate.
When the magistrate arrived, he bent his ear to the grave, listened for a moment, and said, "Ah, yes, that's Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, being played backwards."
He listened a while longer, and said, "There's the Eighth Symphony, and it's backwards, too. Most puzzling." So the magistrate kept listening; "There's the Seventh... the Sixth... the Fifth..."
Suddenly the realization of what was happening dawned on the magistrate; he stood up and announced to the crowd that had gathered in the cemetery, "My fellow citizens, there's nothing to worry about. It's just Beethoven decomposing."
(Sorry. I can't help but be gleeful over Saddam's death.)
"Ahmadinejad said the execution prevented exposure of the secrets and crimes the former dictator committed during his brutal rule."
I like thinking that we (using drugs on him) downloaded whatever saddam knew in the last month or so.....
Maybe someday I will have the opportunity to travel to distant lands, see some land marks and piss all over Saddam's grave. Does anything thing that would cause an international incident??
He had one particular recalcitrant that simply took more tearing down than the rest. After an unusually difficult day of hammering and screaming at the recruit, the DI finally, exasperated, said, "I suppose when I die you plan to come and p**s on my grave."
"Sir, no sir," the man replied. "When I leave this man's Corps, I promise, I'll never stand in line again."
Pour a bottle of whiskey on his grave -- filtered through your kidneys.
The responses within Iraq to Saddam's death echoed the larger reaction across the Middle East, with his enemies rejoicing and his defenders proclaiming him a martyr.
Just like Sean Penn is to Americans: One man's trash (Penn and Saddam) is another man's treasure (terrorists).
You should have said fornication.
I bow to the authority of the boss, however. Thanks for the followup.
This guy went out as such a useless creature, no grace, no style whatsoever. It seems to me when they bumped off Nicolae Ceausescu, they also hilled his wife, his dog and the family goldfish. Oh, well, when you manage to kill off any worth while folks you know, there is only you left when you go. Still, it's always good to eliminate a waste of air.
IMHO....Those who mourn Saddam should join him.
Tar-get rich en-vir-on-ment.
I'm surprised that Nancy Pelosi didn't send a delegation of Liberals to attend the funeral to show their respect.
Top 9 Signs That Saddam Hussein Is About To Be Executed
9. The New York Times has just released their retrospective of the former Iraqi president entitled, "Saddam Hussein: Visionary Leader, or Truly Visionary Leader?"
8. In a Herculean effort to see that justice be done, Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International had to trudge their way past all of those inconvenient mass graves to protest for leniency on his behalf.
7. (tie) Dan Rather has been inconsolable for days.
7. (tie) French flags are flying at half mast.
6. He just leap-frogged past Fidel Castro and Abe Vigoda in Internet death pools.
5. American college students have started wearing t-shirts with pictures of a black, shadowy, Saddam in a beret.
4. Ramsey Clark has been hitting up Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Kim Jong Il for business.
3. Tim Robbins, Danny Glover and Sean Penn have been leading a prison-side candlelight vigil.
2. "Small town cop" mustaches are on their way out in Baghdad.
1. Rope futures are soaring.
Agree totally. In my parlance it's FIRE FOR EFFECT!
I watched President Ford's funeral this weekend and thought it was dignified and very touching. Compare it to Saddam's funeral, where he was buried at night with a picture of him propped up on a chair. One man so good and fine and one man so evil.
Indeed. The video taped Shiitte chanting and catcalling after the hanging wasn't very bright either. Is ANYONE in charge over there??
At least they put him back where we found him--a hole in the ground.
