My guess is dead. A lot of things are pointing to that. THough there were reports that he lost a leg. He may be allove but not be able to control things.

We have seen the V.P. as well as Aziz, but absolutely no sightings or statements from Saddam since the preemptive strike. You would think he would at least give a short statement (they could probably hide evidence of bodily injury) to scoff at the coalition.

Also, it is interesting that his body guard, who has never been seen away from Saddam, was seen on TV at the V.P.'s press conference this weekend.
Oh, see. That makes me think he is aliveKristin

Its too obvious. The body guard? If Saddam was dead and they wanted to make it appear as if he was alive, then they would not have made such an obvious blunder. They're evil, not stupid. I think perhaps they are trying to play us for the fools. A well placed body guard may make it appear as if Saddam is dead, when in fact they have him well hidden.
I follow your logic, but disagree....ClydeTri

If this bodyguard was their number one bodyguard and never left Saddam..then Saddam was killed, wouldnt you re-assign this bodygaurd to the next in charge? Which would be consistent with the video..

As Tommy Franks said Sunday morning - they have not seen evidence that commands are coming from the very top since the intial stikes.
is there any evidence that he IS alive? nmDougSloan

Saddam is a Taurus (born April 28th, 1937)

Here's his horoscope for Today, from

The strength of a design comes from its many perfect details. You're the best spokesperson about what was your idea in the first place. A powerful client stands ready to catch your fever.

So maybe we'll see him on TV today...

But I'm a little worried about A powerful client stands ready to catch your fever. Sounds like bioweapons...

According to Jeraldine Saunders, in the Mercury News:

You're on a winning streak. Nothing can shatter your confidence. It's a matter of luck that may lead to something big. You receive offer involving diet and food.

According to Joyce Jillson, in the L.A. Times:

Brilliant strategy will impress everyone and land you where you want to be. Join or apply for club memberships, where you will find true love. Clear up bills before a shopping trip.

From JACQUELINE BIGAR, in the Miami Herald:

Use the a.m. hours to cross your t's and dot your i's on a project. Put on the brakes in the p.m., when your energy could be slightly off. Put an end to knee-jerk reactions. Be a listener. Gather information. Know where you're heading. Tonight: ** Get some extra zzz's.

From EUGENIA LAST, in the Boston Globe:

Get motivated and start doing. The more you get involved in worthwhile groups, the better you will feel about yourself and the more likely you are to meet people who can further your own interests. 4 stars

Sorry. My tongue was firmly in my cheeck.

Here's Bush's horoscope (Cancer) from

Hidden expertise bubbles to the surface. Stop reading the manual and move beyond your job description. Childhood lessons remain when certain adult fears are stripped away.

Lord, you could read a lot into that...

He's hurt, he's on the ropes, but he's not done yet. His son is important in the whole scheme. Getting to him will be a key to collapsing the regime.
