God lord....
I almost thought you were pulling my leg and then I turned on the TV...It's on every channel.
Wow...
I'm not really sure what to say right now except...wow.......

Come away! O human child,
To the waters and the wild
With a faery hand in hand
For the world's more full of weeping
Than you can understand...


Quite possibly one of the most beautiful things you will ever hear

my first reaction when i saw this on the news was "'bout f*cking time".

which is a bit too harsh, obviously, but i was sleepy. gimme a break. *sings the kit kat commercial*

but i'm glad they caught him. i mean, even though i'm opposed to the war, the capture of saddam is definitelly a good thing. now, of course, the question comes up: will he be tried at the hague or will the US demand that he be executed and try him here?

Well, this is definitely going to be a big test for America's commitment to justice. With any luck, he'll be summarily executed and the Bush administration will be universally condemned.
And what the hell was he doing in Iraq in his hometown? Most. Obvious. Hiding. Place. Ever. *Smacks head*

The first thing that came to my mind was I hope it doesn't end up boosting Bush's political career. The last thing I want is for him to be re-elected. Blegh. Sort of an odd thing to be the first thought in my mind, I guess, but I just woke up, so tongue.gif

I swear, if he does get re-elected, I'm moving to Canada. dry.gif

And I have to agree with Polo about that hiding place. Yeesh. Not exactly the most clever plan.

HURRAY!!!!!!!!

And when we are done with him we can give him to the Iraqis to be publicly executed as they see fit! Maybe I can help them out. Always wanted to hang someone by their scrotum. laugh.gif

By the way, did you see his face? He looks like hell! Then again I would too if I was living in a hole for a few months.

I do not think saddam deserves any mercy. He has tortured and killed soooooo many people. I am sure there are a lot of IRaquis who would love to get their hands on him.


May the new government in IRaq be one of freedom and peace. Now that the past has been dealt with the future can be planned.

OMG Cand, those are soooo exactly my thoughts right now....it's enough to make me think that somehow GW had a deal with Saddam's buddies to let him capture Saddam just so he'd be able to boost his flagging political career at the time when it's most important....a month before the Iowa and New Hampshire caucuses....

Well, I'm not fooled! Hooray for finding Saddam, GW, now get the hell out of office!

...and your "If he gets re-elected I'm moving to Canada"....if he does get re-elected, you'll probably be seeing me when you get to Canada...happy.gif Some friends of mine from work and I all agreed to do the same thing in that emergency!

The fact that he was captured so early before elections surprises me, and proves its not ALL public relations. The primaries have nothign to do with Bush, so that isn't the issue. However the capture has been laced with PR, like "we gave saddam a shave".

I'm sorry, I have to disagree. The US, it is to be hoped, is not Hussein's regime, nor is the UN. Hussein deserves humane treatment and a fair trial, just like everybody else.

Can I edit that slightly to read:
"May the new Iraq be one of freedom, peace and justice."

If the Iraqi people don't see justice being handed out properly, they may as well rename the country "Camp Delta" and go around calling themselves Osama.

Leave the dog to the Iraqi people. He has caused crimes against them that can never truly be repaired, but the joy of seeing his blood spill ould be a welcome sight to many an Iraqi. You are right Commie, he is not the US, therefore we should have no obligation to treat him humanely.

I'm sorry, that kind of attitude is beyond detestable to me. It is EXACTLY that belief that got the World Trade Centre knocked down, and it is exactly that belief that will bring about the downfall of American civilisation. It is my sincere belief that anyone and everyone who supports that attitude should be summarily executed.

Go vote Republican and get the hell off of my post-Enlightenment planet.
