I thought we got that in the first few weeks of the war when we got to drop bombs on a bunch of Middle Easterners. The Saddam trial and verdict is more of victory and retribution for the Iraqis than it is for the US.


Victory and retribution for all Iraqi's, or just he Kurds? I'm pretty sure the Sunni's are pissed about it, and even the majority Shi'a only hated Saddam for being a secularist.

I'm pretty sure we'll have no retribution until we have Bin Laden. But I'm sure the Saddam death sentence will make us all feel pretty good about ourselves.

Do people really, after all the news and reporting, still lump "Iraqis" together as a singular, united people? If full blown civil war doesn't break out in Iraq by the end of next year, you can consider me surprised.

From what I understand, this is how it breaks down: the Shi'ite majority in Iraq is a devout and theocratic peoples devoted to Iran. They hated Saddam for his secularist rule and modernizing government. If there were truly democratic elections in Iraq, the Shi'ite would vote in a government almost identical to Iran's. The Sunni's, a minority ethnic group (In Iraq at least, I believe the Sunni's are a majority in the Arab world), are Saddam supporters and loyalists and make up a large percentage of actual Iraqi insurgents. The Kurds (who are technically non-Arab Sunni's), the people that Saddam mass-murdered in the late '80's for an assassination attempt and possible government decentralization, have settled in the somewhat peaceful north and are fighting to have their own country break free from Iraq.

I'm not positive on all this, I haven't had a chance to research it, but this is what I've gathered from NPR reports at least.

Amen to that. Although - and I hope this doesn't make me sound too gay - I do think Saddam looked pretty handsome during his trial.

In fact, I often fantasize about buying some meth from him, throwing it away, then having a completely non-sexual, you know, just two guys hangin' in a hotel room, naked, 'just bein' guys' kind-a evening, during which we might occasionally give each other a hot-oil rubdown or two, in the most manly and hetero way, of course. In my fantasy, sometimes I mount his naked body and ride him around the hotel room, but not in a gay way – in a 'just two guys completely confident in their masculinity' way. Does that make me gay?


LOL! :-b

You got that wrong though. Saddam would tell you who a good person to buy meth from is, and then you throw it away. I mean who doesn't love to buy illegal drugs and throw them in the trash? Its a greater high than doing them!

My vote would be for stoning. ;-D


Just go to ACS's stash and make him smoke the whole thing. He'll die within the hour from THC poisoning. :-D

(Yes, I know which kind of stoning you mean.) :-b
