An Pluiméir Ceolmhar BS: They got saddam (106* d) RE: BS: They got saddam 23 Dec 03


Nice cover photo from "The Phoenix" (more or less Ireland's "Private Eye") showing Saddam asking the guy searching his mouth with torch and tongue depressor: "Are you still looking for weapons of mass destruction?"

Once again, people who would otherwise give vent to their contempt for the bad guy find themselves seeing things from his point of view because of the blatant double standards applied by the US. The Geneva conventions have been ignored by the US in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo ("sovereign Cuban territory"! - dixit Rumbo), rediscovered briefly when it suits them to object to the display of a couple of less-than-square-jawed Captains Courageous on Al Jazeera, then forgotten again when a photo-op with Saddo is too good to be missed.
