Would Saddam Fit in at Your Cocktail Party?
You know you are in trouble when your cocktail small talk is the same as Saddam Hussein's. Recently Saddam urged the United States to pull out of Iraq:
Saddam's Talking Points
A few apparent highlights from his random letter (to the American people) asking for an immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops as reported by the NY Times:
1. Bush misled the American people about weapons of mass destruction;
2. Lack of Iraqi links to Al Qaeda;
3. Israel wanted us to do it (Iran too apparently);
4. Something about Vietnam.
A few choice quotes as reported by the NY Times:
"'People of America, the misfortunes that have afflicted you and afflicted our Arab nation and within it our heroic people -- including the breakdown of America's standing and reputation -- were only caused by the reckless behavior of your government and by pressure from Zionism,' Mr. Hussein wrote, according to a translation of the letter sent by e-mail to reporters."
"'I confirmed to them that Iraq didn't have any of the things the American officials claimed,'" Mr. Hussein wrote."
"The letter ends with a final bit of advice: 'Save your country, esteemed ladies and gentlemen, and leave Iraq.'"
If he wasn't a mad deposed genocidal dictator on trial for his life, he might have a future on Air America. It is hard to deny that what some say on American soil can give aid and comfort to the enemy. Do we need stronger evidence?
