Is Saddam totally nuts?

Posted to Poetry and Politics

His country surrounded by possibly the largest arsenal ever seen, plenty of warnings to surrender/leave, the country covered in leaflets, the complete annihilation of his palaces, his war machine, and possibly his life... and he sits there in one of his bunkers and refuses to give up, at the expense of his people.

Disregard the moral/political situation, the u.s. is there surrounding his country, their armaments 'cocked n ready', poised to take this idiot down with months of warning, and he just sits there...

What kinda man is this? If i were asked I would say he was a suicidal nuerotic given the choices he could make, not only for himself, but for the good of his people...but then again has his people ever mattered?
