"He was one of Ouja's most remarkable men," said Abu Shehab, a 45-year-old man who insisted that Ali Hassan al-Majid, better known by his macabre nickname, had been hanged to appease Iran and the United States.

"The execution of Majid was done to satisfy the American and Iranian governments, but he will always be one of the icons of Iraq," Shehab told AFP.

I supported the effort to remove Saddam and create a stable govt in Iraq. Now after all the blood and treasure has been spent these savages honor a piece of slime and award oil contracts to the Chicoms. They simply were not worth it.

There is a mental illness that happens to people who are held hostage. I wonder if it is the same with people who are oppressed?

We ought to call in an Apache airstrike and apologize after the fact that we thought it was a terrorist sect. Thinking more about that idea, it would be accurate.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: No one can bring Western-style democracy to a Middle-Eastern islamic nation.

They simply are incompatible with one another.

No, I don’t know how to fix the thing, either. It’s a very complicated beast.
