no question about it -- he's immortal to many an Iraqi

Posted to Poetry and Politics

and i dunno, watching him at the trial stroking his beard i got this sneakin feeling he's going to be in power again there. as long as they don't actually behead him before there's civil war in the next couple years . . .
not sayin it will, but i could sure see it happening.

and i like your perspective, btw.
i think it's hard for people to take and to see where you're coming from. you're not condoning him, simply pointing out his pop star potential. hitler was fanatically popular. charles manson was rock-star popular. jim jones. jim bakker and tammy faye. crazy ducks flock together. and saddam's got a crazy magnet the size of a religion.
