Nadz on Saddam

It's pathetic, really, the attitude that some Arabs have towards this trial. It seems that because Saddam is an Arab leader, people feel obligated to sympathize with him. He's "one of our guys" who "stood up to the West", and is now on trial by "foreigners". Beneath all of these supposed concerns about poor, cuddly Saddam getting a fair trial (which he will) is an idiotic mentality that compels people to shed crocodile tears for a mass murderer. Never mind that Saddam has killed, tortured and ruined the lives of countless Arabs, his own citizens. Never mind that he was an autocrat, a sadist who gassed thousands of innocents, an all-round asshole. To the pundits at al-Jazeera, he's "our asshole". Read the whole thing of course.

I can't believe how stupid so many people are when it comes to Saddam. He has killed many Arabs in his own country, (as you have already stated), he has invaded an Arab country and threatened others (Kuwait, Saudi Arabia) and he wanted to be the ruler of all the Arab states; which he couldn't have done without war. As for defending Arabs from West his track record there is pathetic (0- 2 from my reckoning).

If this is the kind of person that the Arab people look up to, God help them. Talk about dancing with the Devil.

I couldn't believe it when the Arabs at my uni were so disappointed about Uncle Saddam's arrest--at the hands of the US. They were calling each other and exchanging condolences. LOL!

Z. You better watch out; You are exhibiting signs of closeted neo-conism. The Neo Con conspiracy may end up...gasp...converting you soon.

Don't say I didn't warn ya!
