CBoy, did you post anything particularly interesting for your 11000th post?
10999 posts not remotely interesting, what makes you think his 11000th would be anything special?
Yeah, I know patience is a virtue, and perhaps it's just me; but anyone else find this to be moving painfully slowly, even after an election year?
Wait a sec. The trial isn't controlled by Americans, so what difference would an American election make to a trial which is supposed to be run by the Iraqis?
I personally can't wait for justice to be served in this instance. Will that happen? Probably not. We all know that Saddam is guilty -- anyone who denies that is a fool. But what I want to see if this Iraqi court will also file charges against Saddam's accomplices, and that includes foreigners (several of them currently in various roles of government in Washington).
Trial is reported to be starting sometime before the Iraqi elections (according to the Iraqis).

Perhaps a more appropos thread title would read:
"Saddam, Captured 1 Year...What Have THEY Gained?"
Although much positive can be said about Saddam's demise as ruler, perhaps if the planning and execution of this adventure had been done with more forethought and professionalism, things would be currently much better. Perhaps, of course, we shouldn't have become involved in the first place (my gut feeling).
I have not been directly involved with this affair (as I presuppose most of you have not) and must rely on picking through various news sources to form my own opinion. I will add anecdotally that out of numerous armed forces personel I have talked with since their return, their candid comments on progress are about 2-to-1 in favor of the campaign and its' future resolve. Regards...Jack

Saddam said that if we (the US) invaded Iraq it would be like Vietnam all over again. Well, he was right. Dubya got his trophy that's what capturing Saddam was all about. Now when do we leave ??? How many more Osama wana be's are we going to make before we pack up and go ???
Next time try the old "dirty Sanchez" She'll love it !!!

Gary2880, please mate, don't talk on issues that you know nothing about. Don't you remember that on 28th June the Iraqi people were handed their sovereignty -- even happened 2 days before schedule. The Americans do not want to control Iraq. They want the Iraqis to make their own decisions on issues which will affect Iraqis. The Americans are only there so long as they are welcomed by the Iraqi government. I know this is true, because US President George W. Bush said so himself.

January 20th, 2009 Can't Come Fast Enough!
Alphafalcon, I hope you choke on a donkey-shaped cookie on that day, since they'll need to be eaten from the victory party that didn't work out for yall that year
Seriously though...I say we grill the shit out of the bastard for info about Capt. Scott Speicher....we owe that much to his family and the men who served with him (I lived a few streets over at the time of his shootdown, he was in my dad's Airwing, small world)...Saddam has to know something about what happened over there in 91.

C'mon, don't you guys read reports of or listen to what Dubya and his band of puppets say? The WORLD is now a much safer place without Saddam in power. Hell, it's almost been a full 24 hours since an American GI or a member of the coalition has been killed. How much more safe can we be?
I have no doubt that Bush, a self proclaimed "War President" (now there's something to be proud of) will have us attacking Iran before his 2nd term is up.
Damn, now where did I put that application for Canadian citizenship...

DC10guy, of course I am serious. You have to admit that GWB is the BEST thing that has ever happened to America since Reagan -- making so many friends around the world where there were no friends before. You really have to realise that GWB is doing what he is doing for the common good of all humanity, for both now and in the future.
GWB knows the way, and I sincerely think all people from all nations should support him and his plan, uncompromisingly, so that we all will have a chance of living in peace during our lifetimes.

any american that ever believed that saddam and his runnings were a threat to US national security, is the proof that the spotlight of ignorance aimed at the american public by the government itself...is def bright and working.... upsetting.
Saddam and the CIA were best friends just 2 decades ago when Iran was the question....and now??
There is nothing Saddam could ever tell the usa after being captured, that would be completely new news to the usa.....what do u think unmanned planes, cia, and a crap load of people on the inside have been gathering for years about iraq....
I feel sorry for regular americans because most of the world is starting to judge them as people, based on the actions of their gov...and they don't deserve that....
Why did you go all the way to Iraq, when Cuba is supposed to be a communist country right down there with good ole Fidel....
If an american really believes that Saddam was a threat, ask those people who believe this why they think the US has let Fidel rule the way he has....
