Barack Obama, our next President

"Yahia saw Saddam's victims have their hands and feet drilled through with electric drills. He watched people suspected of bad mouthing the regime have their mouths pulled
apart until their jaws broke. He was forced to witness the torture of families: men forced to rape their wives in front of their horrified young children and saw a video of
parents screaming helplessly behind a glass wall in which they could see their naked children in a room with a bee hive, being stung hundreds of times."
Boy, that sounds terrible! How awful! Of course... when things sound too bad to be true... there's often a republican around, or Fox News... so, um, who reported all this exactly? Cause I sorta remember... what was it... something about Iraqi soldiers retreating from Kuwait and taking babies out of incubators which they could then steal and cart back to Baghdad...

"Hey, man, check this out, baby incubators. Let's steal them, tie them to a tank and cart them back to Iraq so we can... well, grow pot or something..."

It's peculiar how these sorts of tales always show up around the time our heroes are out burying live Iraqis with bulldozers and dropping 2000 lb bombs (booms?) on residential neighborhoods? What's a girl to believe?

Kristol’s Bizarre History Lesson

...Kristol’s recommendation is also politically disastrous for Republicans in the present. He writes:

The task of GOP political leaders is to educate the public about the dangers of the world and to inspire people to rise above their weariness.

If the last decade tells us anything about what sort of “education” the public would be receiving from Republican hawks on this subject, it is would be better for all concerned if they didn’t bother. It would be refreshing if Republicans would make an effort to educate the public about the dangers of the world instead of always misinforming them and exaggerating those dangers to justify an exorbitant, unnecessarily large military budget. Telling Republicans to ignore the public’s war weariness is extremely poor advice, since ignoring the public’s attitude toward current wars has contributed to three election defeats and blinded them to the fact that their long-held advantage on national security vanished years ago. If Republicans follow Kristol’s advice, they will most likely be condemning themselves to more defeats at the polls and to increasing irrelevance in policy debates. By the end of his article, Kristol has veered into self-parody with his insistence that more willpower is all that is required. If Republicans are want to avoid the same fate, they’ll ignore what he tells them.

"
brutal rapist with an obsession for beautiful women.”

Every day Uday Hussein and his bodyguards drove around the university and the girls’ schools until the president's son saw a girl he fancied. He would stop her and
ask her to spend the night with him. If she refused his bodyguards would grab her and bring her back to the palace.

There Uday would rape the girl. If she resisted, after he was done, he would give her to the whole team of bodyguards. If she was really a lot of trouble, like one architectural student named Nahle Sabet who had the nerve to publicly reject him, Uday would throw her naked to his pack of wild dogs which ripped her to pieces while he watched, drinking champagne and laughing.

No woman was safe. One day Uday saw two newlyweds walking hand in hand. He wanted the woman and his bodyguards grabbed the couple.

Saad Abd al-Razzek Nihaya was an Iraqi army officer decorated for bravery in the Iran-Iraq War but that didn’t help him or his new wife.

Uday took the girl to a hotel suite. She pleaded with him not to defile her - she had only been married yesterday. Uday beat her until she was bloody then raped her."

If only Uday had been all white.

Cheney Marks Tenth Anniversary of Pretending There Was Reason to Invade Iraq
Posted by Andy Borowitz
HOUSTON (The Borowitz Report)—In a sombre ceremony attended by former members of the Bush administration, the former Vice-President Dick Cheney marked the tenth anniversary of making up a reason to invade Iraq.
The ceremony, held on the grounds of the Halliburton Company headquarters, brought together the former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, the former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the former Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, and other key members of the lying effort.
Calling the assembled officials “profiles in fabrication,” Mr. Cheney praised them for their decade of dedication to a totally fictitious rationale.
“Making up a reason to invade a country is the easy part,” Mr. Cheney told them.“Sticking to a pretend story for ten years—that is the stuff of valor.”
Mr. Cheney added that their “steadfast charade had raised the bar for all future administrations.”
“When it is time to invade Iran or Venezuela, will the President have the will to make up an entirely fake reason to do it?” he asked.“That remains to be seen.”
The ceremony ended on an emotional note, as Mr. Cheney placed a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown W.M.D.
Former President George W. Bush, who was said to be otherwise engaged, was represented at the event by a nude self-portrait.

A decade after the US-led invasion of Iraq, years of violence and disdain for the country's current political class fuel nostalgia for Saddam Hussein -- the man the foreign troops fought to oust.

Though accusations of ties to Saddam and his regime are used to tar politicians in Baghdad, residents of his hometown Tikrit express fondness for a man who, though responsible for ordering the deaths of countless Iraqis, is remembered for having imposed stability, which has long been missing.

"I will remain proud, and remember Saddam," said Khaled Jamal, a watch-seller in Tikrit. "Our country has not changed or developed in the past 10 years."

Along with his frustration over the slow pace of rebuilding -- many Iraqis, not just in Tikrit, suffer from poor provision of basic services and high unemployment -- Jamal also voiced another commonly-cited frustration: the apparent rise in sectarianism since Saddam's fall.

"There was no sectarianism, no Sunni and Shiite," Jamal said.

"But now, that is the first question you hear when you meet someone," he added, referring to queries over a person's province of origin, often used to find out their religious background.

"Once near a Nineveh hotel Uday saw a pretty young girl no older than fifteen. He found her attractive and had her kidnapped. Uday raped the girl who lay silently and
then let her go, bruised and bleeding to stumble back to the hotel to find her parents.
“It turns out the girl had been deaf since birth,” remembers Latif.“She tried desperately to communicate what had happened to guests in the hotel lobby, but couldn’t make her hysterical, silent crying be understood.”
When Uday’s was informed he commanded his bodyguards to grab her again so she wouldn’t make trouble for him. They took her to the nearby forest and gang raped her before killing her and burying the body".
You rightwingers are turned on by that rape stuff, aren'tcha?
Sick in the head.
Hey, btw, speaking of rape, the victim in Ohio is being threatened.
Yep, good old Ammmuuuurrrican football players, think it's okay to have their way with a girl because she wore a skimpy top and shorts and was drunk. Clean up your own backyard first dummy

Saddam was an international pariah by the time of the 2003 invasion, his subsequent capture in 2004 and execution in December 2006.

But in Tikrit, he is remembered far more fondly as a leader who fought for Iraq and was at the helm at a time when Iraqis enjoyed relative domestic stability, especially compared to the brutal violence that followed his ouster.

Uday and Usay as children...

"Dad! I want to drill the holes in their heads today, Uday got do it yesterday!"

Does any of that even sound remotely likely, sweeties? After you've drilled one head, haven't you sorta drilled them all? What do you suppose the Romans on crucifiction duty were thinking when they got up in the morning...

"Well, les' see. I got a date with Sarah tonight an' dunna that wee lassie have some honkin' funbags on her! All I got to do is get through the day without gettin' any blood on the ol' uniform. Can't blame a girl for wantin' her man to be tidy."
