#1 That crazy Saddam! All those blusterings and shell games were one big joke! What a great sense of humor!

We should really put him back in power so he can continue torturing and killing dissenters, gassing Kurds, and draining and poisoning Shi'ite marshlands.

Whaddaya say, A? Wasn't the world a better place for puppies, baby ducks, and Iraqi children when Saddam could do whatever his little black heart desired?

#2 That's not all, Dar. Putting Saddam back in power means that (after a suitable interval, of course) the UN could commence to remove him. They'd do that the oh-so-proper way so as to satisfy the delicate sensibilities of our leftist-Socialist-tranzi citizens. I'm sure the French-German-Anglo-Bengaladeshi expeditionary force would land in Basra sometime in 2015, unless the Charles De Gaulle founders while under tow (and what are the chances of that?).

Yassss, our A friend would be so happy to see it done the right way. Never mind the screaming and horror from the Kurdish and Shi'a regions, they're not important.

They never were important to A.

#3 A: We have found a bunch of mass graves though. Is there much "much scepticism" about that?

#4 A panel truck left abandoned and oddly scrubbed VERY clean with a bleach solution was plenty enough for me. Then again I've always been willing to believe the worst about Saddam Hussein.
I maintain great skepticism regarding the 'world communitee', the U.N., France, etc. Nice cozy arrangement they had in the Oil-for-Palaces program, for instance.

#5 Amusing juxtaposition:

"No weapons of mass destruction have been found...will be the conclusion of the Iraq Survey Group?s interim report..."

"... there would be much scepticism about the ISG?s findings..."

So... lemme get this straight: The BBC says that the ISG's going to say they haven't found anything, and everybody's gonna be skeptical about that. Yeah, I can buy it!

#7 This story might mean something if it weren't from the BBC

#8 Sorry, my posting was abridged. I had also included the last paragraph "... there would be much scepticism about the ISG findings...". As Old Grouch spotted, this is the humorous part of the item.
