2003-04-04 11:01:33 AM

2003-04-04 11:01:40 AM

2003-04-04 11:01:44 AM

2003-04-04 11:01:57 AM

2003-04-04 11:01:59 AM  
WHOA! he returned from the dead. I dont know if we can fark with this guy.
2003-04-04 11:02:10 AM  
Did someone have a hand in his a** moving his mouth?
2003-04-04 11:02:23 AM  
Can't be him. Must be a double. CNN reported that some guy in a bar heard a rumor that his neighbor's cousin saw Saddam being buried in a cemetary near Moscow.

CNN said so.

Wilki24: Are you on some sort of mission?
2003-04-04 11:02:49 AM  
The speech made only one topical reference...
2003-04-04 11:02:58 AM

Gets me every god damn time.
2003-04-04 11:03:27 AM  
I think he's still alive. He'll have no problem surviving the assault on Baghdad, just like EVERYONE ELSE WHO LIVES IN SYRIA.
2003-04-04 11:03:32 AM  
Why can't he just hold up a copy of today's newspaper or something? Talking vaguely about events that could have been easily predicted doesn't prove anything.

I still think he's alive, but badly injured and horribly disfigured. Like missing an eyeball, or something.

With thousands of frightened residents fleeing Baghdad and U.S. troops in control of its airport, the Iraqi information minister promised Friday that his nation's military would launch an "unconventional" counterattack against the coalition troops.

"We will do something which I believe is very beautiful," said Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf at a Baghdad news conference, adding that the Iraqis planned to strike back "in an unconventional way." Asked if that meant the use of chemical weapons or other weapons of mass destruction, he quickly said no.

"What I meant are commando and martyrdom operations in a very new, creative way," al-Sahhaf said.
2003-04-04 11:03:40 AM  
I am going to go out on a limb and say that a flame war may break out....
2003-04-04 11:03:47 AM  
This is what's termed "lowered expectations".
2003-04-04 11:03:48 AM  
<beats cat against wall>raywr! raywr! raywr!</stops beating cat against wall>
2003-04-04 11:03:53 AM  
Or he could have taped a speech saying iraqi brought down an apache ... and another one to say they brought down an F16, and another for an F18, etc ... etc ... etc. From the article it didn't seem all that convincing!
2003-04-04 11:03:57 AM  
Since when did Saddam read from a notebook?
2003-04-04 11:03:58 AM  
Where ya been Saddam??

Oh, you've been cowering somewhere.
2003-04-04 11:04:05 AM  
i thought and wanted him dead. now he supposedly in that hotel.

do you think we have permission to blow it up, rebuild it and be okay w/ the world?
2003-04-04 11:04:15 AM  
Does he mean this:

WASHINGTON DC - For years, in closed Pentagon meetings, there has been the horrifying discussion of what to do about Iraq's Nida Abu or "Robot Army" if one in fact, does exist. The idea of this army was masterminded by Saddam during his initial rise to prominence in the late 70's and implemented sometime during the early 80's. It is essentially, a 200,000 man killing machine made up of 20-23 year old males. They have never seen the light of day, having spent their entire lives in a cavernous underground complex complete with terrorist training 200 feet below Baghdad and surrounding areas. Starting in 1980, he paid Muslim women $10,000 for each male child they surrendered to the regime upon birth. Those who didn't 'volunteer' had their babies taken without payment and were then raped and killed by members of the Republican Guard.
In less than 3 years Saddam had nearly the 200,000 man (or in this case, baby) army he so desired. The children immediately underwent brainwashing and shaping procedures, watching extreme forms of Anti-American propaganda, grotesque videos of tortures and killings, and with age, participating in the very same rituals preying on the weakest members of the Nida Abu. Students presumed as unfaithful or weak were used as examples for all to witness. Castrations, beheadings, and the like. Whispered stories began to circulate through Iraq about the cannibalism of the 'used' soldiers taking place underground.
Military Analysts say that the terror unleashed by this fighting force would be unlike anything mankind has witnessed. Most experts agree the launch could be very soon. Under strict orders from Saddam, the Nida Abu will be released via underground tunnels exactly 33 days from the start of any Western aggression. The plan is to lure the western forces into the city of Baghdad and under complete darkness release the 200,000 Nida Abu into the streets to kill, torture, cannibalize as many of the enemy as possible. Plans for broadcasting the images are already in place.
"These men are heavily armed with full chemical gear, weapons, and wear complete body armor underneath, said one Pentagon official. "I liken them to the way people illegally train pit bulls to fight to the death. They are basically human in body only, everything else is much like a caged, rabid animal."
2003-04-04 11:04:22 AM  
Oh no, he's alive! After that speech his forces will rise up and crush the coalition forces for sure! Resistance is futile! He will assimilate us all. *yawn*
2003-04-04 11:04:40 AM  
It is classic isn't.

Need warm and fuzzy jingoistic propoganda?

2003-04-04 11:04:40 AM  
If he is dead, I am pleased. If he is alive, I am pleased because we can then turn him over to the Iraqi government for trial and execution, at the appropriate time and after a fair trial, of course.
2003-04-04 11:04:53 AM  
This is bull shiat. We turned Saddam into a giant pile of something resembling Dinty moore Beef Stew two weeks ago.
2003-04-04 11:05:02 AM  
Who is this "Saddam" guy and why should I care if he is on TV?
2003-04-04 11:05:04 AM  
I sure hope so Jack .... I believe it would be very beautiful
2003-04-04 11:05:08 AM  
In Baghdad, Saddam's personal physician called a meeting
of all twenty-four of the Saddam look-alikes.
"Men, I've got some good news and I've got some bad news."
The twenty-four mustached men sat quietly, awaiting the physician to continue.
"The good news is that Saddam is still alive."
Twenty-four men stood up as one and cheered.
"The bad new is ... he lost an arm."
2003-04-04 11:05:09 AM  
This could just be a classic trick.
1) Think of an event that can go one way, or the other
2) Prerecord Saddam mentioning the event one way, and then the other
3) Save tapes of both
4) ???
5) Profit!!!
2003-04-04 11:05:11 AM  
Saddam also was heard to say in Arabic "Maluk'he al'labah chalunakh Frank Oz mala'kch chabu." which translates to "Hey, why does Frank Oz have his hand up my ass?"
2003-04-04 11:05:31 AM  
Sweet, I got another article posted. I knew this war would be good for something....

2003-04-04 11:05:35 AM  
By the way, would it be considered murder by the US if they would kill Saddam and his family? This war is about disarmament as dictated by resolution 1441...
2003-04-04 11:05:35 AM  
I still think he got his teeth flossed with a Tomahawk on the 1st night.
2003-04-04 11:06:05 AM  
Saddam in the Sudan...that's my theory

still, he needs to get his salad tossed
2003-04-04 11:06:21 AM  
I told you he is alive.

He's probably in Syria by now.

World War III is just getting started.

Tonight it gets "unconditional", be afraid.
2003-04-04 11:06:32 AM  
Hasn't anyone seen south park???? Satan kicked him out for being too evil....
2003-04-04 11:06:46 AM  
Umm, that proves nothing. That was very vague and he could have taped several such statements and then had them edited together to give the appearance of being real, or had one of his doubles do it. As mentioned above, I'll believe it when he holds up today's newspaper or something similar.
2003-04-04 11:07:00 AM

2003-04-04 11:07:03 AM  
i thought we killed all of his imposter saddams.

add one more to the list

/the real one lives...
2003-04-04 11:07:05 AM  
BTW, it's pretty sad that Saddam sounds vastly more honorable than dubya.

Our enemy: "We must fight for the honor of our men and women!"

Ourselves: "The admiblestration uhhh, uhh, we seem, uh, we're going to win, and, uh, thoughtily beat the enemy, uhh"
2003-04-04 11:07:21 AM  
"He called on Baghdad's people to resist and to stick to "your principles, your patriotism and the honor of men and women."

What a joke.
2003-04-04 11:07:42 AM  
Did he mention being pissed about his airport being renamed?
2003-04-04 11:07:46 AM  
sounds like it could have been prerecorded.

still no proof so my guess is D. E. D.!!!
2003-04-04 11:07:57 AM  
Mavrick, you have a new target.

I wonder if Saddam love the money shot.
2003-04-04 11:08:19 AM  
Actually if the US kill Saddam and his family, that'll be considered a bold act of taking out the garbage.
2003-04-04 11:08:20 AM  
he then issued a message to the elite republican guard:

atension my l337 R3puplic4n G{_)4rd:
Destr0y teh INFEDELZ BOYEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeee
2003-04-04 11:08:37 AM  
Hi, I'm Saddam Hussein, the *holds mug to face* president of Iraq.

You've probably heard a lot about *mug to face* fighting in Basra

And the *mug to face* invasion of my airport

But the fact is that *mug to face* I am luring the infidels in with cheap airfares.

Furthermore, I pick the *mug to face* Philadelphia Flyers.
2003-04-04 11:08:37 AM  
"This war is about disarmament as dictated by resolution 1441..."

It's not about that anymore. It's about liberating the Iraqi people. Didn't you get the memo?
