They got the bastard!!!!
ACE IN THE HOLE !!!
I was driving back from Richmond to the CG base when my radio began recieving transmissions. WOOHOO! They got SADDAM!!!!
The News Types are certainly covering the biggest story since 9/11, but some of them don't seem happy about it.
I'm hearing a bit of second guessing.
I have not SEEN any news just heard it on the Radio and internet, but from the tone of some of these guys I imagine they are even more pissed than when they found out the DC sniper wasn't a white Southern male.
Good! Be pissed! This is good news! Happy Day!!
The BBC seems genuinely astonished that we took him alive.
Well, umm, yeah!! Oh, I see...you believed your own BS.
But this is too good a day to be snarky. :)
Joe Lieberman knows this, and shows himself to be a class act.
This Arab Idi Amin, this rapist butchering, Stalinist thug, will terrorize people no more, except in childrens bedtime stories.
This is a good thing...for the US (that means all of us) the Iraqis, and the world.
This will not be a magic bullet, but it will help things get better. The sheer ignominy of his capture will take a lot of the wind out of the sails of his supporters.
It looks like he will be tried by Iraqis and not some UN body. This is a good thing for several reasons, including the fact that it will speed the healing of that nation.
There's a good link roundup over at the Command Post.
I am beside myself with Joy!
