Comment to Tai Chi Italy:

To me Bush is a dictator as well, sanctioning his terrible acts - as he says - by the the direct commands of God. Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney and others will have their deadlines too, though not so drastic as Saddam Hussein's. It is remarkable that in the 21 century we seem to have "big" leaders who referring their actions to God. To me it seems that the only reason for this is to make them feel big. They should maybe get better from that megalomanian thoughts by consider that first line:
Only God i great.

I like this very much!
PS: I lean slightly in favor of "for"...

God is great and after watching Saddams final moments I think he met his maker with dignity and poise, which is more than I can say for the American or British Governments who declared war on his people and country and have caused the grief and deaths of thousands of innocent people ever since they invaded.

Hanging a dictator, seems to have been America's scape goat for 11th September. He was an evil man, misguided and greedy, but so are they all and violence only begets more violence. Iraq is now a dying country in utter chaos, thanks to the West's helping hands.

Shame on us all
