Merry Christmas, You Beautiful Bastards!

With apologies to Steve H.

Hussein’s been taken, and it’s time for him to clear the air about a few things. Where them weapons? What’s the deal with Al Qaeda? How in the world does a man grow a foot-long beard in just 6 months?

Interestingly, I was watching the news here in Germany tonight. I hardly ever watch television news, since it’s about 5 minutes of real news, then blah blah blah blah blah for 25 minutes. I was amazed at the difference between the story you get on the Internet, and the bullshit that the talking head on television was spewing. Here’s an admittedly rough quote:

Saddam Hussein was responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of Iraqis over the course of his presidency...Although the Americans and British went to war over Hussein’s links to Al Qaeda and Weapons of Mass Destruction, neither of these allegations have proven true.


That’s bullshit. Absolute bullshit. First off, it was hundreds of thousands, you twit. Don’t whitewash Saddam Hussein, of all people. Secondly, take a look at this story at the Telegraph from Friday:
Iraq’s coalition government claims that it has uncovered documentary proof that Mohammed Atta, the al-Qaeda mastermind of the September 11 attacks against the US, was trained in Baghdad by Abu Nidal, the notorious Palestinian terrorist.

What will have to happen before the news anchors start telling the truth? What does it take to quash this meme? There’s also the unkillable meme that, “70% of Americans believed Saddam Hussein was directly involved in the 9/11 attacks.” This is usually cited in order to discredit American public opinion polls. The premise, you see, is that the American public is so uninformed and gullible, they believe that Hussein was in cahoots with Al Qaeda. Well, as it turns out, he was.
With Hussein in hand, we should find those weapons as soon as possible. If it turns out there were no weapons, and the Iraq War was all about the ooooiil, impeach Bush, convict him, and put him before the ICC. I have no problem with that.
If the weapons are found in the next few days, Saddam details his links to Al Qaeda, and even points us the way to Osama bin Laden, then millions of Europeans will simply forget that Saddam ever existed, and will continue to spout the lies they so desperately want to believe.

How much stuffing does that hold?
