Am I the only one that's kinda wondering....why did he allow himself to be captured? I mean, without a fight? Am I giving him too much credit to think he still has something up his sleeve? Am I paranoid? Do I need to double the dose of my prozac?

I oculdn't believe it. I'm glad they got him. He must have been thinking, might as well die as live in that dirty old hole.

When there's 20 guns pointed at you and you would have to pick up a pistol from your lap and bring it over your head to maybe get off one or two shots before being killed, I think he knew he didn't stand a chance. So much for dying a martyr. Besides, he probably can't wait to mouth off at his trial.

I suppose taking care of his business in a ditch was quite different from the 24 KT gold toilets...

Geez, at least he could have tidied the place up a bit before they got there

I just saw the place where they found him on CNN. Egads, quite a difference between that place and those palaces. What on earth are the Iraqis going to do with those palaces?

I wonder if he was singing "If I knew you were coming I'd have baked a cake"

thanks....

but i wasn't really "rooting" for saddam. i am aware he has affected many innocent lives.
it's just that a small part of me isn't happy with the fact that the US can do anything it wants. it isn't fair. some of the things the US have done have been wrong. like them helping people from panama gain their independence from colombians because panama would benefit the US as to the panama canal. (don't really want to get into history that much...im sure you know what im talking about) ....it's stuff like that.

this latin singer/songwriter named Ricardo Arjona said that the whole world should be able to vote for the US pres. "If the guy has control over the bomb that could fall in my backyard....i would like to able to elect him." It makes sense.

(btw, im not trying to pick a fight. im just saying what i think....i may be wrong...easily. )

Peace:

I think Saddam should be tried in Iraq, but it may take some time before they are ready and prepared to do that.

I agree with the poster above......

These people deserve the right to put him on trial in their country, under their own laws.

So sorry UN.

just an observation from my corner of Africa. I was sitting with Malian friends having my hair braided when we heard the news on Radio France. The general feeling was one of disbelief. As the girl braiding my hair told me, "Saddam is a bad man, but Bush is also very bad and the war was wrong." This morning at work people were looking at the photo printed in the newspaper and saying that they didn't think it was really him. Essentially, the mood is that the US was the aggressor and that they think they can do anything they want. I don't know how many times I have been asked "Why did you elect Bush? He likes violence too much. He thinks America is the only country in the world."

So there are some reactions from a third-world country with a majority moderate Muslim population. Not that anyone will care, but it never hurts to get a look at the outside world, n'est-ce pas?

9. "Who's got a coat hanger -- this beard itches like a son of a bitch!"

8. "Anyone have a mint?"

7. "Is this about the illegal music downloads?"

6. "Am I going to be on 'Cops'?"

5. "Which describes me better right now -- 'haggard' or 'grizzled'?"

4. "How did you get past my impenetrable styrofoam brick?"

3. "Do I get the 25-million-dollar reward?"

2. "How's the war going?"

1. "Will you go easy on me if I tell you where Martha Stewart is hiding?"
