Saddam Dead! (?!?)

Saddam Dead! (?!?)
: Glenn Reynolds throws a challenge out to Saddam (and Osama) to speak up or be presumed dead.

I’ve been thinking that Bush and his generals should just start saying that Saddam’s dead. What’s the harm? If Iraqis start to realize that’s quitely likely true, their weltanschauung will change radically. If it’s not true, then Saddam finally has to show himself. We win either way. So you heard it here first:

Saddam is dead!

Let’s sing it together: Ding, dong, the dictator’s dead. The wicket dic, the dictator’s dead. Ding, dong, the wicked dic is dead….

: Speaking of catchy ditties, Howard Stern has been spinning his new hit: “50 Ways to Kill Saddam.”

  • Jeff, what is up with you?
    1. You declare “He has WMD. Let he will prove he has not”.
    2. You declare “He will use WMD. Let he will prove he won`t”.
    3. You declare “He is dead. Let he will prove he isn`t”.
    Will you understand at last that he is not obliged to prove anything?
    And do you hope that if you and Reynolds will repeat that he is dead in your blogs, the Iraqis those have no connection to Internet now will read it? Wake up – you only persuade youself in it. But you have already persuaded youselves that Iraqis will welcome you with flowers and still have received only bullets.

    i just found this.

  • Saddam is a vicious dictator and warmonger. He is not a private citizen and is not entitled to be innocent until proven guilty.

    Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 11
    (1) Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defence.
    Adopted and proclaimed by General Assembly resolution 217 A (III) of 10 December 1948
    Did your country vote FOR this resolution?

    Maybe Bush will follow up on that “debate” offer….

    I read somewhere that the reason they haven’t stated that Osuma is dead is because then we wouldn’t have a reason to still be in Afghanistan. If this is the case, then it’s fine by me that they say Saddam is alive for years while we keep killing terrorists in Northern Iraq.
