While you were out the WaPo called and left this message (translated by the WaPo from the original Spanish):The Egyptians are talking to Saddam Hussein," Bush said. "He seems to have indicated he would be open to exile if they would let him take one billion dollars and all the information he wants on weapons of mass destruction." Later in the conversation, Aznar returned to the subject. "Is it true there's a possibility Saddam Hussein might go into exile?" "Yes, it's possible," Bush responded. "It's also possible he could be assassinated." In any case, Bush said, there would be "no guarantee" for Hussein. "He's a thief, a terrorist and a war criminal. Compared to Saddam, [former Yugoslav president Slobodan] Milosevic would be a Mother Teresa." http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/09/26/AR2007092602414.html
Great picture. The guy imitating Madman Mac to his right (left of the picture) is General Eichelberger, who proposed using chemcial warfare in the Phillipines. In Guines. In Okinawa. Basically, any place he was afraid of...Fun fact to know and tell -- MacArthur was despised by his soldiers. Univerally. Not hated the way they hated Patton, but roundly despised as a grandstanding, egomaniacal, coward. Things were better then.
"He's a thief, a terrorist and a war criminal."classic case of projection.
