The Man Who Thinks He Still IS King...
Saddam Hussein believes the Americans may reinstall him as president of Iraq, the NEW YORK TIMES is planning to report on Sunday, newsroom sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.
Saddam Hussein has no illusions, his chief lawyer says. As he sits in his prison cell reading the Quran and writing poetry, he knows the inevitable is coming -- a death sentence handed down by the Iraqi court trying him for crimes against humanity.
Yet Saddam refuses to submit to the fate that awaits him, Khalil al-Dulaimi, said, for he believes there is a way out:
President Bush will use the court's sentence as leverage to try to persuade Saddam to tamp down the insurgency, he said, so desperate are the Americans to stanch their losses.
In his madness, Saddam believes the Americans might even reinstall him as president of Iraq!
"He'll be the last resort; they'll knock on his door," al-Dulaimi said. "The United States will use this sentence to pressure Saddam to save it from its mess."
It would never occur to anyone on the Left that, all of these problems Iraq and the United States are having, are directly tied to this man and his delusions. The Gulf War, Desert Storm--and all his bluster about his WMD'S and the denying, lying, and hiding, are the root of all his current troubles and ours. This man is truly mentally ill; it was a good thing he was stopped.
