Poll question: Do you feel safer now that Saddam Hussein is dead?
Nice to know that one more witness to the debacle that is the war in Iraq is now dead, huh?

To answer my own poll: NO. Emphatically NO. If you're so inclined, place your bets here on when and where the first terra alerts will be trumpeted on MSM...

Julie

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

6. Hussein didn't attack NYC a first time...that was
done by an outfit called Al Queda who were at odds with Hussein, considering Al Queda is a fundie group of Muslims and Hussein was secular in his outlook.

4. Heck no!
I have quite a bit of trouble reassuring myself that Boooosh hasn't ruined the future for our children and grandchildren. I fear that he has not only made just about everybody in the World hate him, he has made them hate everyone in the USA!

5. Nope. Julie, as per usual, you are spot-on.
There is NOTHING about this situation that ANY American should take comfort in.

This is a bad turn of events in an ever worsening debacle.

Saddam was a murderous butcher....so is the Shrub.

Which is worse?

10. Now there's a question
>Which is worse?<

I'm hard-pressed to answer that one...

Julie

8. As long as the BFEE and their supporters in
the Senate and House of "representatives" and the corporate right wing media are around, I fear for my safety.

13. One more boot before bedtime
DH and I have a small side wager. We think that the first terra alert will be sometime tomorrow, just in time for the New Year's Eve celebrations.

I'm also wondering how long it will take to show the corpse on CNN. I bet it's already happened. We just won't be tuning in to news stations for the next 72 hours or so...

14. Nope.
In fact, it is my fear that things will get worse. I know some Iraqi's are celebrating; but I don't think all of them will be. and I fear for our military personnel who are over there.

18. So, here's the question this morning
>We are no safer now than we were last week.<

What was the fire drill, then? Why was it necessary to make sure that he was too dead to get any kind of information out of him (especially regarding the "WMD"'s he supposedly knew about,) as soon as possible? Doesn't Noriega still live in incarceration, or is his information just not as damaging?

19. Would I feel safer after a mob hit?
Edited on Sat Dec-30-06 09:53 AM by roamer65
The answer is NO. This basically was a "hit" on the Hussein crime family by the Bush crime family. Nothing more, or less.

20. It will start a holy war all over the Muslim world.
All I can tell you all is duck.
