Here's more info on the kids we murdered today:
Edited on Tue Jul-22-03 05:25 PM by Must_B_Free
from 2001: "These were the sons of Saddam Hussein: Uday, 15, tall for his age, with bulged-out eyes and protruding teeth; and Qusay, 13, smaller, but the image of his father at the same age."

http://clue.denver.co.us/pipermail/clue-talk/2003-March...

So they were 15 and 17 at the oldest. Some threat huh?

edit: looks wrong

here Uday is 38

And if Bush is found guilty of treason, will the US have to execute his entire family?

Just asking...

3. they are not teens folks
or rather were not teens, and yes they were not
the nicest folks either.

That said, the orgasm will last a week or so and you can
expect chimp boy to get a boost in numbers

4. Uh, no.
They were in their mid-thirties and horrible bastards. There are many, many dead people in Iraq to feel bad that we killed, but they ought to be on the bottom of the list.

That doesn't mean that there aren't worse horrible bastards in the world that we would be better off protecting ourselves against, or that pre-emptively invading a country that wasn't a threat to us is now justified. But Uday and Qusay were not children and they did help run what by the accounts of human rights organizations like Amnesty International, was a brutal dictatorship.

5. No matter their age...it's kind of sick the way they're all gloating about
killing them....I say let it go....they were bad guys but they're dead...It wasn't a great military fete like they're trying to make out...For god's sake a half a dozen people were surrounded by zillions of troops....

6. In addition to the two sons killed today, there were an unidentified man
and a teenager, who may have been the son of Qusay or Uday.

Those 2 have not been identified. As far as I know, the two sons have not been definitely identified, either, but I hear no doubts, no maybes on the television.

8. Locking the thread
I think Must_B_Free realizes by now that the information in the original post was inaccurate, and it sort of set the entire thread off on a tangent. There are other threads going now:
