1. I am surprised that the * regime

is letting this possible media event just go to waste. usually, they
use something like this (or a terra alert) to take some of the steam
out of an indictment or some such.

2. Why would they try and hide this news event? It is a win for them.

5. let me try this again.

a spectacle (terra alert, capture of a "terrorist", or execution of a dictator) would
tend to distract the attention of the reliably fickle MSM from any impending bad news
that the administration might have had bottled up.

3. Halftime show at the Super Bowl
Good clean "christian" family fun. Throw in a few beheadings before the main event, drag the bludgeoned bodies around the stadium to the roar of the crowd. Then falwell and dobson can flip the switch as Husseins body tumbles from the platform, the "christians" go wild. Alas, nothing will change in Iraq, the blood will flow even greater. Once again, bush has failed.

4. I thought midnight New Year's Eve.....
you know - the countdown and everything. Maybe Dick Clark could emcee. . .

Suggestions for the appropriate accompanying music?
