Answer: the Syrian Law University.
In Syria, on his way back to Russia with Iraqi information to be kept for America, this Russian diplomat
feigned an attack to cover his sequestration of critical info.
His head is bandaged but there is no blood. There is no trauma, no bruising, no contusion,
and his friend has what appears to be a military tattoo on his arm where he also feigns injury. But, there is no
laceration, no bruise, no swelling, no bleeding, etc.
Perhaps most telling about the tale is the Russian's smile on the ambulance, when caught offguard.

The Flower Grew in the Dark
How can it be?
From under the snow
The flowers emerge
And begin to grow
How can it be?
The seed that dies
Goes into the ground
Only to arise
How can the humble
The meek and the lost
Find redemption again?
Only at great cost
How can a people
Break the tyrant's chain?
If the strong will help them
They can rise again
Every single day
If we will only work
If we will only pray
Saddam's wife, Sajadeh, has settled in the Syrian port city of Latakia. Western intelligence sources said she was joined by most of her children and grandchildren. Many of them arrived in a convoy from Baghdad to Damascus last week.

The resilience of Saddam has surprised some Pentagon officials and intelligence analysts. They expected Saddam to either flee the country or at least lead a glorious battle to the death. Saddam has done neither. Instead, he has taken a leaf from Osama Bin Laden's book and is waging a resistance from underground. It appears Saddam has a core of people who feel they have nothing to lose and are ready to die for him.
The problem is that most of Saddam's troops have largely left him. Those fighting in Baghdad are mostly Al Qaida insurgents and Arab volunteers who were recruited to conduct suicide missions. These people are not fighting for Saddam; they are fighting the Western coalition and fully intend to take over Iraq if they succeed. It's the second stage of Al Qaida's war against the West, only the stakes are Iraq.
The Muslim fight against coalition forces is largely a Sunni affair. But Shi'ites are expecting such allies as Iran and Hizbullah to intervene.
In the end, the prospect of a Sunni-Shia war in Iraq looms large.
How do you hide 100 combat jets?
Intelligence officials said Saddam has done his homework. Since the 1991 Gulf war, Saddam has been preparing bunkers for his air force. Then, he spread the aircraft in underground hangars around Iraq, a territory the size of Texas.
It could take the United States or anybody else years before the MiG-29s and MiG-25s are found.
The missiles were also believed to have stored in the mountainous areas between Iraq and Syria. Many of the missiles and launchers have been hidden in tractor-trailers inside Syria.
Last month, on the eve of the war, Saddam honored two ex-Soviet generals. They were Vladislav Achalov and Igor Maltsev, purged from the Soviet military for supporting the abortive August 1991 coup against Mikhail Gorbachev. They had no future with either Gorbachev or his successor, Boris Yeltsin. But the generals had plenty of friends and supporters in the military, parliament and particularly the defense industry.
Over the past few years, Achalov and Maltsev were believed to have helped Iraq procure weapons and training for Saddam's forces. The two ex-generals made a series of trips to Baghdad to help Saddam prepare the Republican Guard for the war against the United States.
On the eve of the war, Saddam wanted to show his appreciation. On March 10, Saddam personally honored the two ex-generals in a secret ceremony. For Saddam, this was almost unprecedented.
Russian President Vladimir Putin probably didn't know anything about these trips. But other officials and those in parliament knew about the ex-generals. The Russian defense industry and military have long had a large foothold in Iraq and scores of Russian advisers helped Saddam prepare the army for the current war.
Gotta see this, Tiger.
Sniper's out sir!!
LindaSOG: Have you seen a picture of a little Iraqi boy in a white robe standing in the Iraqi desert giving a thumbs up? I was hoping it might show up on this thread, but I don't see it.
Anybody ? . . .
In the Russian/Syria sequence, it should (of course) say " ...from America"
and not "... for America".
BREAKING: UPDATE: Saddam's personal yacht
|Too much to watch
|A Jordanian in Amman covers his face in front of a television showing a U.S. Marine draping a U.S. flag over the face of a statue of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein in Baghdad on Wednesday. Jubilant Iraqis tied a noose around the statue and pelted it with shoes as Saddam's 24-year rule collapsed in chaos.|
|Not a game
|Elevator operators Darwin Cabadeana, left, and Ensley Taylor from the V-1 Division look at the positions of aircraft on the flight deck in a control room aboard the USS Kitty Hawk in the northern Persian Gulf on Wednesday.|
|Chamber of horrors
|An alleged torture chamber is seen in the basement of a jail in Basra, Iraq, on Tuesday. Locals told journalists that for decades Saddam Hussein's secret police tortured inmates at the jail with beatings, mutilations, electric shocks and chemical baths.|
|Pfc. Mark Bennett drops a line in the lake surrounding one of Saddam Hussein's palaces in western Baghdad. Bennett was using noodles from a chicken with noodles MRE as bait, but didn't have any luck.|
What wonderful pictures of all the happy and FREE Iraqi people.
Reaching out and "touching someone"

Does anyone know anything about this flag? Is it pre-Saddam? Its missing the writing between the stars.
Kinda like a stainmaker we know who performed at Ron Brown's funeral.
