THE CONFLICT IN IRAQ
Hussein a Fan of Doritos, Reagan
June 21, 2005
NEW YORK — Saddam Hussein likes Doritos, washes his hands compulsively and thinks fondly of the late President Reagan, according to American soldiers who guarded him and tell their story in the July issue of GQ magazine.
The jailed former Iraqi leader described how Reagan, who was president during Iraq's 1980-88 war with Iran, sold him planes and helicopters. "Reagan and me, good," Hussein said, according to the article.
No date has been set for the trial of Hussein before an Iraqi tribunal on charges of crimes against humanity.
Hussein said he wanted to talk to the current president "to make peace with him," they said. "He knows I have nothing, no mass weapons. He knows he'll never find them," they quoted him as saying.
He told the soldiers he had never dealt with Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Hussein, whom the Iraqi government intends to try for mass killings, seemed convinced he would return to power, they also said.
"He still thinks he's the president," one soldier said. They said Hussein told them that "when this was all over," he wanted them to stay in his palace and see how beautiful Iraq was.
He would offer the guards advice on women, they said.
"He was like: 'You gotta find a good woman. Not too smart, not too dumb. Not too old, not too young. In the middle. One that can cook and clean. Then you thank her, and you go … ' And Hussein smiled and made the gesture of bending a woman over and spanking her, as if to say, 'This is how you keep her in line,' " one soldier said.
Loves Reagan for selling lunatics (well, him) weapons.
Lives in a basement.
Expounds proudly on his charmingly abusive and Fundamentalist theories on how to keep any woman who is unlucky enough to hook up with him obedient.
Continues to harbor ideas about Iraq so completely detached from Reality that you just shake your head and wonder where he gets such powerful dope.
And cowers in a hole when the time comes to stand up and fight for his own cause. A cause he has cavalierly sent other people -- little people -- off to fight and die for.
Is it just me, or is he just one DSL connection away from profiling out -- to ten significant digits -- as every Right Wing blogger you’ve ever heard cheerleading for their war from the safety of Checkpoint Cheetohs?
