Rock, Paper, Saddam! Pretty silly, but pretty funny.
Thanks. It sure is difficult to find humor in the whole situation, but this sure gave me a wry, ironical little giggle :-}
A preview of the grown up proceedings to come, no doubt.
"Tiger hand always beats paper."
Heh. I dunno why, but I feel a little sorry for Tariq Aziz. He seems like a fairly good guy who was bound and determined to make a series of very bad decisions. I had a theory for awhile that Aziz was secretly one of our guys, that he might have even been on our payroll. Guess I was wrong.
In the proceedings that follow, I do hope that amongst other things, the nature of the U.S. government's relationship with the Baathists (prior to Gulf War I) is fully illuminated.

I've got to say that's pretty funny! Especially about the pen missile (should have called it a pen scud though). I still can't believe they found him in a tiny hole in the ground. To see him actually in a courtroom like that is also unreal. I would never have guessed they'd actually catch him alive.
