I see London I see France, I see Saddam's Underpants

BAGHDAD, Iraq - British and American newspapers published photos Friday showing an imprisoned Saddam Hussein clad only in his underwear and washing his laundry, prompting an angry U.S. military to launch an investigation and the Red Cross to say the pictures may violate the Geneva Conventions.

There is absoultely no need to show him in in his underwear. The only thing this will do is infuriate people who already want to kill us.

The people who want to "kill us" are already infuriated and will act on their hatred regardless of the Saddam picture.

I'm not so sure I like this. I'll be damned if I care about Saddam, but if it's a violation of the Geneva Conventions I think someone has screwed up.

Well, nbc when will you learn that this is not the way to win the hearts and minds of muslims. Personaly i don`t care if he is shown in underwear ( jesus in nailed to the cross almost nude also ) but this will rage muslims again. Is this the way the western world is showing their civilisation to the babaric muslims ?



It not about how we see it, it is importaint to learn how different cultures would see it.

Muslims have no need to be offended by the picture of Saddam. I'm not saying they won't be, but they shouldn't be. He was a secular leader who killed more Muslims than Christians in his reign of terror.

Yeah, you know that Osama denounced Saddam as an "infidel" in one of those tapes that he's put out. The only Muslims who liked Saddam were some of the Sunnis in Iraq; not all Iraqi Sunnis liked Saddam, either. It would be terrible if they'd put something Koranic on that tabloid, but they didn't.

Saddam to sue over prison photos
Saddam Hussein plans to take legal action after a British newspaper published photos of him half-naked in his prison cell and doing his washing.

"We will sue the newspaper and everyone who helped in showing these pictures," said Saddam Hussein's chief lawyer, Robert Shapiro speaking from Brentwood.

He looks a lot thinner when not wearing layers of Kevlar.
