Will you please read a little about Middle Eastern politics and culture before you shoot your mouth off like this again? Saddam is not a muslim fanatic. He's a Ba'athist secularist. He has no interst in holy wars. If you knew anything about his history, you would know that he is a brutal, cynical, Machiavellian dictator. Everything he does or has done is aimed at increasing his hold on power. Right now his hold on power is at its zenith.
Any american death is a success to these idiots. It is about success and establishing themselves in the eyes of the rest of the jihad towel head world.
For people like Bin Laden, yes. Not for people like Saddam. Anti-American Arabs are not a monolith. You have a lot of reading to do.
While you're telling the rest of us to read our Arab history, perhaps you should study up some, too.
In recent years, Saddam has moved closer to fanatical islam in order to have more control over his peasants.
Saddam may be evil, but he's not stupid or irrational
Um, I'd say someone who uses chemical weapons against his own people is pretty much irrational.
Bear in mind that Saddam absolutely hates George Bush (41) for utterly dismembering his little war. Weak men are often guided by hatred. There's your motive.
