Regarding the Saddam trial:
The defense team of former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein and his seven co-defendants called upon the international community on Monday to pressure the United States to free Saddam.No, it's not a Scrappleface article.
"We appeal to the whole international community to put pressure on the U.S. administration in order to release the kidnapped President - Mr. Saddam Hussein and his comrades -, withdraw the invading forces from Iraq and to restore the status quo before April 9, 2003," Saddam's lawyer Khalil al-Dulaimi said in astatement.
Or how about this :
The British government has drawn up a secret plan to begin withdrawing 2,000 soldiers - a quarter of its total forces - from Iraq this (northern) spring.The DoD was confirming while the British government was denying, once again running in circles around our friend the anonymous leaker.
Now to the sense department:
"Enemies have exploited this ... to spread their poison and revive their old hatreds with new methods and mechanisms," he said.Grand Ayatollah Sistani of Iraq, calming the flock after denouncing the cartoons. Seems appropriate to me, and a heckuva lot more responsible than sponsoring some juvenile contest like his demented Ayatollah brethren to the east.
