The end of Saddam?

  1. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,83495,00.html

    News is reporting SH and his sons may have been inside a building that was bombed today, "a target of opportunity." Good possibilities all three have been killed.

    If true I wouldn't be sorry.

    Ohhhh, I sure hope so!

    And I love it that "Chemical Ali" was bombed in his own home!

    God forgive me, but I think that death this way is too easy for him. Perhaps he is injured, in pain and bleeding deep inside a bunker under the place bombed. He will get thirsty and hungry, he will listen to his son's die. And eventually he will die too, in abject misery.

    I feel the exact same way! They deserve long, slow, painful death.

    Still, too good for him, Helen!

    Wonder if we'll really know. Wonder how they can prove it?
    Sure would make the world a better place.

    A relative of a patient, uneducated elderly retired trash collector, smart in spite of dropping out of school in the
    6th grade said, "How would we know if we find a body if its Saddam or one of those guys that looks like him?
    We don't have no DNA sample do we?"

    It just seems to contrived to me...the three of them showing up in public...while the coalition forces are hovering overhead and on the ground. Call me skeptical, but it just appears too easy.

    It was reported that the Iraqi leadership cannot meet at their Govt. Buildings any longer so maybe that is why they chose a leadership residential home.

    I also saw the coverage last evening l.rae and hope it was successful. I think the people want to know that the leadership is gone, hopefully we will know in the next few days.

    They knew the coalition was avoiding bombing residential areas....makes sense to me why they were there.

    I won't believe it until they have his head on a stick, if there's anything left of him.

    I agree, instant obliteration was too easy a death for him.

    I do hope he's done for and that they can prove it, so the people of Iraq can breathe again, and finally speak up and begin a new life. Without proof, there would still be too much fear of reprisal.

    It will take these people al long, long time to not be looking over their shoulder and shake that horrible feeling of being totally controlled.
