Can you believe it’s been five years since Saddam was captured?

  1. Thank goodness that guy is gone. A real mass murderer. It still amazes me that France is considered a member of civilization after they went to far in arming this monster and defending his interests… practically right to the end.

    He was just another of the world’s scores of wannabee Hilters.

  2. Seriously?!?

    Time does fly. It seems so fresh, him cowering in the hole…

  3. I was reading about this earlier and again struck by his sheer madness and utter lack of regret or remorse for his war crimes after capture,

    When Saddam found out his U.S. military guards were also using his laundry line to dry clothes, he wrote that he demanded they stop, according to the excerpts.

    “I explained to them that they are young and they could have young people’s diseases,” Saddam wrote. “My main concern was to not catch a venereal disease, an HIV disease, in this place.”

    But hey, his poetry will live on.

  4. Yeah, I heard all about it on the MSM today. Oh, wait…

  5. But what if, instead of a third-world shit-hole like Iraq, he had been born in the Hawaii? Will the Russians “save” us? Or the Chinese?

    I know, I know. It can’t happen here.

  6. BTW, you do know that Iraqis enjoyed, under Saddam*, gun ownership rights that we can only dream of, right?

    *and still enjoy

  7. can you believe that anyone objected to him doing the big shoe dance at the end of a rope????

    and yet, they did.

    they should have just tossed a Willie Pete into the hole and weighted down the door. %-)

  8. It’s kinda funny. In late 2002, I was mildly opposed to the invasion of Iraq. Not on its merits, just on the timing. It was actually the opposition by others to the invasion that sounded like support for Saddam that changed my mind.

  9. Time flies. Can you beleive it’s been 40 years since Apollo 8 circled the moon?

    The conservative mindset for benchmarking history is ‘gravely’ myopic.

    I agree it should be a bigger story, but NPR did cover it yesterday.

    It’s a ‘big’ story for ‘small’ minds with downcast eyes and a limited vision of history.

    Why? Because you opposed going after another nation’s leader who was in violation of multiple UN sanctions for more than a decade?

    Apparently, you never hear ‘Genesis’ read from lunar orbit on Christmas Eve to a festering world full of Husseins. That’s an event to benchmark.

  14. downcast eyes and a limited vision of history.

    No, it’s a big story for the men and women who put their lives on the line for our country. If you think that’s not sufficient enough to be newsworthy, you’re an unmitigated ass.

  15. #14- Dmac- personal attacks show you’re low on ammo.

    I choose to mark celebrating circling the moon. You choose to celebrate a bug in a spider hole.

    As WC said, “Never give a sucker an even break or smarten up a chump.”
