BREAKING NEWS: After a frantic "death watch" quickly put together tonight on the TV news, Saddam Hussein's final act has drawn to a close. Arab news organizations are reporting his execution just a few moments ago.
Hussein is said to have been hung between 6:00AM and 6:08AM Iraq time. There weren't any WMDs in Iraq, but there WAS a genuine "bad guy" they managed to catch and kill. It's probably the only thing that's gone right as far as Bush's involvement in Iraq goes.
But, judging from his track record, if George W. Bush was in charge of the autopsy, he'd probably find a way to fuck it up and Hussein would come back to life!
Hussein, should he actually stay dead, is reported to have requested burial in Yemen until such time as Iraq is "liberated", and his corpse can be reinterred in Iraqi soil. I'm not sure why he considers Yemen a "friendly" option, but obviously he feels they're sympathetic to his regime.
(...and get ready for the conspiracy nuts who will claim that the Iraqis executed one of Hussein's many doubles in his place! see below:)
And, in the event that it really WAS Saddam Hussein who was executed, I wonder where he'll spend eternity?
Somehow, I don't see Allah embracing him with open arms;
Jesus probably isn't a big fan of the guy;
Buddha isn't even returning Saddam's phone calls;
and Krishna is shopping at the mall...
Hmmm...could those guys from South Park be right?
OK George, you got your boogeyman at last. NOW can we start looking for Osama bin Laden?
You remember him, doncha, George? He's the guy that actually killed Americans on American soil.
You know, the REAL bad guy.
