Wanted: A new Saddam

  1. "Anti-Americanism has ascended from its former status as the preoccupation of a relative handful of Jurassic Marxists, professional victims, Third World whiners, and Islamo-fascist troglodytes to the level of a major new global religion. Like any religion, it has its saints (which include the likes of Che Guevara and Ho Chi Minh), its martyrs (the Rosenbergs, the Guantanamo Bay detainees and Saddam Hussein's sons), its high priests (Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore and Abu Bakar Ba'asyir), and its desperately over-eager wanna-bes (eg, Asia Times Online's very own Pepe Escobar, whose viewpoint on any issue can be predicted with absolute accuracy by simply asking "what interpretation of this situation will put the United States in the worst light?").

    Curiously, however, while the religion has a hell (America), and a devil (George W Bush), it lacks both a heaven (the collectivist pipe dream having been found wanting) and a god (since the anti-Americans consider themselves as having evolved beyond the need for a deity--save their Islamist faction, which wants to impose its religion forcibly on everyone else). Still, the anti-American cult provides its legions of drooling adherents with the crucial element of any faith: the illusion of meaning in an otherwise meaningless existence. That priceless psychological salve, in this case, is the comforting delusion that, no matter how hypocritical, backward, bigoted, ignorant, corrupt or cowardly the cult's followers might otherwise be, at least they are better than those awful Americans."

  2. I believe the only person that can put back everything in
    order in Iraq, is Saddam Himself or someone like him, as whethere we like it or not.

    The new Iraqi adminstration are bunch of deep hard cock sucking pussies
  3. "The new Iraqi adminstration are a bunch of deep hard cock sucking pussies."


    Paul Bremer wouldn't actually term it that way, he'd probably phrase it along the lines of...

    "Our newly appointed interim Iraqi adminstration enthusiastically strives to unify our coalition goals by addressing the top most priorities for the Iraqi peoples' highest good."

    Same thing.

    It all sucks the big one.
