There is some sense of rationality in the Arab world.

"I don't like the idea of having the Americans here, but we asked for it," he said. "Why don't we see the Americans going to Finland, for example? They come here because our area is filled with dictatorships like Saddam's."


Here's a great video showing anti-war protesters in New York City. It gives a good indication of what we are dealing with. I'm sure the producer/narrator came in with a bias, but somehow I don't think he did too much editing to get his viewpoint (based on the interviewee's comments) across. Anti-War Video

Satan Lives? Crud! No Saddam!???

Saddam survived attack on building say British intelligence sources

A cat has nine lives and Saddam has how many?

Did they get him? It sure looks and sounds like it.

April 8 — A U.S. Air Force warplane dropped four enormous bombs on a residential complex where “extremely reliable” intelligence indicated that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and one or both of his two sons were attending a meeting, senior administration officials told NBC News late Monday. The sources would not rule out the possibility that Saddam could have moved before the bomber struck, but they said it was likely that he and his sons were dead.

Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf , unintentional comedic star.

In an apparent show of defiance, Iraq's Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf stood in the streets of Baghdad Monday morning amid a U.S. raid on the capital, issuing denials of coalition advances.

Now Check yourself before you wreck yourself.

"Al-Sahaf says 'The Americans, they always depend on a method what I call ... stupid, silly. All I ask is check yourself.'"

Too bad a few, brave men have to die in this war due to guys with room temperature IQs taking over Iraq. But, I'd say the unintentional comedic material is first rate.

His momma Named Him Clay, I'm Gonna Call him Clay.

"Chemical Ali" Dead.

Ali Hassan al-Majid, one of the most brutal members of President Saddam Hussein's inner circle, was apparently killed by an airstrike on his house in Basra, British officials said Monday. He had been dubbed "Chemical Ali" by opponents for ordering a 1988 poison gas attack that killed thousands of Kurds
Chemical Ali found dead in Basra.

Float like a butterfly sting like a bee, dead as a doornail, that the way
it be.

Is this great news?!

"Rumsfeld suggested that Saddam may no longer be in control in Baghdad.

'Where are Iraq's leaders?' he asked. 'The night before the ground war began, coalition forces launched a strike on a meeting of Iraq's senior command and control, and they have not been heard from since.'"

Where are they? Who's running the show?

Howland a Bruin? Looks like a done deal. Nice to see a Gaucho get a chance to coach the Bruins.

My wish to flush Saddam out has begun. "Pentagon Keeps Asking, 'Where's Saddam?'"

Robert Scheer, what a loathesome human being. Why do we/I waste my time. Well, he's in my newspaper, which has some very good qualities, but how can they explain Robert Scheer?

In his article in today's LA Times, he states, "The 'terrorist' is generally considered such because he is indifferent to the fate of civilians."

Uh, no Robert a terrorist intentionally targets innocent civilians. If a terrorist truely was indifferent, a suicide (homicide, murderous) bomber would only intend to blow himself up and accidently take some civilians with him/her. It is the suicide bomber's intention to kill and terrorize civilians by blowing them up in coffee houses, pizza parlors, and any other normal everyday place. The World Trade Center wasn't targeted at 11 at night when there would be few people in the building. It was targeted by the terrorists early in the morning in order to maximize casualties. When is the Times going to take some responsbility for Scheer's comments like NBC did with Peter Arnett?

"Saddam is dead!" Let's all say it together. Flush him out. It should be the top news story everywhere. Why can't we see the Iraqi leader in a war they are "winning?" The Americans should tell the Iraqi people to stop fighting for a dead man. Force their hand. If he's alive he must show himself. Doesn't it seem like the simple thing to do?
