Saddam betrayed by his wife
Melbourne Herald Sun, Australia - 12-16-03
SADDAM Hussein was captured in a filthy underground hole because of the demands of the one woman he still trusted.

She is Samira Shahbander, the second of his four wives.
And now she may receive part of, if not all, of the $US25million ($33.8 million) bounty the US Government promised for information that led to the capture of the Iraqi dictator.

Israeli intelligence agency Mossad had been tailing her since she fled to Beirut, Lebanon, before the US invasion...
After 12 Years, Sweet Victory: The Bushes' Pursuit of Hussein
Yahoo News - 12-16-03
... The first President Bush has never expressed public doubt about his decision to stop the 1991 war with Mr. Hussein still in power. He did so in part because the international coalition that he had assembled to drive the Iraqi Army out of Kuwait would have crumbled and because he assumed Mr. Hussein, humbled by his military defeat, would fall...

Melbourne Herald Sun, Australia - 12 -17-03

...Asked if he would like to see Hussein executed, Mr Bush, who presided over a record number of executions as governor of Texas, said: "I have my own personal views."

He refused to elaborate, but the US President could barely contain his loathing and contempt for Hussein, who surrendered without a fight...


Being humble is not one of Dubya's personality traits. Can't you just imagine Dubya dancing in his workout clothes? Or his flight suit and helmet?

Subject: Saddam Hussein

Dear Lisa
Some of my thoughts:

The Cost of The Capture of Saddam Hussein:
Over 90 Billion US Dollars
10,000 Iraqi civilians killed
542 Coalition forces killed
2610 US troops wounded

This is because Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and caused the death of a few thousand of his countrymen?

Obviously George W. Bush feels that all the lives he destroyed is worth capturing Saddam.
I guess revenge is sweet if you are an evil person like George W. Bush.

ps. when I get my Christmas cards done I'll make a donation as I love your site.

Thanks for writing Ned.  Bush has twisted the minds of Americans so much they think Saddam was responsible for 9-11. War is hell and Dubya has made it into heaven for his blind followers.  Evil is too nice a word for him.

Donations are sooo welcome. Thank you in advance and Happy Holidays.

Does Bush have Colin Powell irritation?


Happy Holidays All Hat No Cattle Viewers!

Never before in the over-6,500-year history of evil dictators have things
changed in less than one hour on a December Sunday morning for the betterment
for all of humankind.

This unusually-colored image spans about two light years and was taken by the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope in 1999. This Carina sub-cloud is particularly striking partly because its clear definition stimulates the human imagination (e.g. it could be perceived as a superhero flying through a cloud, arm up, with a saved person in tow below or it could be the universe giving Bush the finger).
