Eerie seeing him getting a medical, watching history being made.

US forces were able to sneak up on Saddam because he is partially deaf due to playing his guitar too loud.

Initial Tests Show Captured Man Is Saddam

WASHINGTON - U.S. raiders were not certain at first they had their man when they pulled a bearded man from a hole in a Iraq cellar, but soon were able to determine it was Saddam Hussein. The Associated Press was shown documentary evidence that the person captured is Saddam Hussein.
The evidence depicted Saddam as disheveled and wearing a long beard.

Yeah, yeah.
Then out to California through the forests and the pines.
Ah, take me with you, Jesus.

You might not see him in person but he’ll see you just the same.

Yeah, yeah.
You don’t have to worry ‘cause takin’ care of business is his name.

I hope a guy named Leroy is Saddam’s cellmate. :smiling_imp: :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

[quote]British Prime Minister Tony Blair, the United States’ closest ally in the war in Iraq, confirmed that Saddam had been captured Saturday night and indicated that Saddam could be tried in Iraqi courts for human rights abuses.

“It removes the shadow that has been hanging over them for too long of the nightmare of a return to the Saddam regime,” Blair said in a statement. “It also gives an opportunity for Saddam to be tried in Iraqi courts for his crimes against the Iraqi people.

Let’s hope payback is a real bitch this time.

They got the son of a bitch :smiley: Just watched the press conference with Bremer, Sanchez, and leader of the Iraqi Governing Council. I can’t believe the small area that Saddam was hiding out in. Who will get the 25 million dollars? I hope the soldiers who captured him get a small part of that. Was it true that one of Saddams wives may have tipped the coalition forces into Saddams hiding place? This is really gonna be a political godsend for the Bush Administration. I am sure a few Democratic candidates are not celebrating tonight.

I hope they don’t give him the death penalty…He should get a life sentence in one of the dirty rat infested cells the Mukhbarrat used to torture so many people in.

Chewy

[quote]Celebratory gunfire rang out across the Iraqi capital, radios played festive music, drivers honked their horns and passengers on buses and trucks chanted “They got Saddam, they got Saddam,” as word of the former dictator’s capture spread from car to car and shop to shop on a sun-filled Sunday afternoon.

U.S. troops stationed around the country cheered when they heard the news and held back as Iraqis fired their guns in the air. Iraqi journalists gave U.S. officials a standing ovation and cheered wildly when video of a captured Saddam was shown during a news conference announcing the arrest.

Happy.

Not so happy.

:laughing: :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

Get some!

unreal.

so who’s next? the Sauds and the Assads?

Gandalf’s been on a bender!

You know, I was suprised and amazed at this news, too, just waking up now at midnight from my day long nap – alien life forms tend to do this – but after what ai read on the websites, big deal. it’s just saddam.

What they really need to catch is the real Wicked Witch of the Whatever (East? West?) named Osama. That’s the day I will quit this forum forever! Mark my words!

the horse’s mouth

that’s a winner!

hitler never faced a rule of law. mussolini got his brains kicked in. has this big of a fish ever been reeled in under the “rule of law”? how far back do we gotta go to ID a similar catch?

maybe bush just go re-elected. saddam’s trial to serve as a led-in to the US election?

Wonderful news,
I was going to have a light night on the booze, but this early Christmas present calls for a celebration.
Roll on the trial; it will be great to see the bastard judged before the Iraqi people.

It’t about time they got him!! Now if they could only find Bin Laden and the 1000’s of others that will be become just like them, it’d be great!

Justice would have been better served, I think, by letting the cameras film as they rolled a couple of hand grenades down the hole… :smiling_imp:
