Even the Communist Party members in Iraq are dancing in the streets.

Shows just how far gone the commies we have here are, they can't even give it up for the capture of a human monster like Sadaam.

I think it took Drudge so long because it took him all that time to come up with that fantastic headline!

They're going to have to surgically remove the grin I got!

I know what you mean! I whooped out loud when I heard the CBC news 55 minutes ago.

What a wonderful wake-up call this morning!

Gloating is good. ;^)

My daughter is sick. I woke up to give her some motrin. Couldn't get back to sleep so I turned on the news. I watched for a little bit, and then woke up my hubby.

It was 3 am here on the Left Coast.

From palace to spider-hole

[ SUNDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2003 07:31:02 PM ]

BAGHDAD : Saddam Hussein's capture ends a US hunt for the man who ruled the oil state with an iron fist and launched two regional wars before being ousted by US-led forces in April.

US forces found Saddam, dirty and sporting a greying beard and hiding in a cellar on Saturday near his hometown of Tikrit.

Until then he had been as elusive as al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden and Taliban leader Mullah Omar.

war with a March 20 air raid intended to kill Saddam, 66, and decapitate the Baathist state he had forged in blood, iron and oil money.

 

But he escaped and disappeared from public view after US forces stormed into Baghdad on April 9. From hiding, he kept up a flow of defiant taped messages, aired by Arab media, urging Iraqis to fight US-led occupation forces.

 

One passionate Saddam message surfaced after his sons Uday and Qusay were killed by US forces on July 22.

 

The United States justified its war by saying Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and had defied UN Security Council resolutions ordering him to disarm after his defeat in the 1991 Gulf war.

 

Washington said he sponsored global terrorism. Troops occupying Iraq have yet to prove those charges, but many of the brutalities of his rule have been exposed, such as mass graves holding thousands of his murdered foes, especially rebellious Kurds and Shi'ite Muslims.

 

After using his skills as a street fighter and conspirator to get his Baath party into power in a 1968 coup, Saddam built a terrifying grip on Iraq despite wars, uprisings, coup plots and assassination attempts.

I'm impressed with the restraint of the members of the task force, by not capping him. Talk about following orders.

Actually, I hope that our guys used dogs to sniff him out and find him. Apparently he hated dogs! That would be so fitting if a couple of dogs found him.

Tikrit needs to be flattened for hiding and spawning this refuse. That house in particular should become target practice for a large bomb.
