|The board had some pretty good George W material after the peace rallys, now it's Sadam's turn. However you feel about going to war, NOBODY, even Bin Lauden, is calling him a good guy
There has to be some prime material out there. I mean, have you noticed the size of the sword he likes to have his picture taken with? What do you suppose he is compensating for and how did it get that way? I'll even award bonus points to anyone who can skewer Sadam and Osamma with the same pitard.
The winner gets their name mentioned in a post in which Kristin uses the term "stallion."

|but I think it sums it up. Incidentally, the source is attributed to a French armor brigade in-theater.
Just to blow everyone's opinion of me, I've also done the exact same thing.

|Is that the French idea of a "big gun" oops, I made fun of the bloody frogs when we're supposed to getting Saddam. I'm sorry, it was just so easy.|

|You'll still find hastily-erected "tributes" to Saddam the Great Liberator all over the tiny country, particularly in the northern section near the Iraqi border. As recent as late '92, US and Kuwaiti forces were also still finding remains of various people "liberated" by Saddam. Typically it involved a dead family at the feet of a dead woman tied to a fence/structure. The MO was usually the same...the Iraqis slaughtered the family in front of the mom, raped her, then killed her. ...And that was the least of the abuses. I won't go into greater detail.
Suffice it to say that the Repub. Guard forces were little more than butchers, having their way with the local populace while the regular Iraqi army conscript units often went without food or water for days at a time.
This particular guy is either a French or Canadian armor soldier sharing his feelings. It's good to share, you know.
