Too bad he didn't go out the same way his sons did.

Hats off to the 4th ID and everyone else.

Let's see if Gloria Allred et al will now argue that he wasn't responsible for all of murders.

This is great news! I hope this will bring an end to the retaliation by the rebels in Iraq who are still firing on the coalition soldiers.

I'm so glad that Jacques Chirac took time out of his busy French day to make a statement about this.

This is great news!

I am glad they captured him. It doesn't suprise me that he was hiding in a hole.

But sadly this won't end the violence over there. That part of the world has been fighting for as long as anyone can remember and it will continue to do so.

You may be too accurate in this assessment, but it will give some of the elements involved pause for a little while. It will also speed the process of coalition troop withdrawl.

It's not a bad quote. I just like to mock the French. He was one of the first world leaders to make an official statement. In my opinion, he should be last. He should alow those who actually had something to do with it talk first. Maybe a childish view, but it's Sunday, I'm watching cartoons and feeling childish.

get out and let the iraqis master their own fate.........whatever that may bring....
I expect many will hate the US forever, as is perfectly within their rights to do so.....
we have still not changed our MO.....if we don't like you......look out....cause we may be coming to get you....we are god (the one we like this week)....and no one else is.....
these bush thugs are doing it right here at home too.....

Not at all. Seeing his stand was against the war, I believe his speaking out so soon in a congratulatory manner is his way of acknowledging that the coalition has done something fine and good. I don't think he's limelighting, rather, it's a form of apology.

Here is some irony......

The militant Arab factions of various flavors see America as evil, Satan, worthy of nothing but death. So, Saddam is caught with fresh, new $100 AMERICAN dollar bills (like 750K) Now, if a society is evil and worthy of death, why is their money so neat? Hypocritical SOB's, hehe.

I don't think Chirac's statement is an apology of any sort....
i'm sure he thinks he has nothing to apologize for....he said what he and meant what he said and stuck to his beliefs.....war is a means of last resort when there is an attack or "IMMINENT THREAT", that's what Chirac said all along... and that view was endorsed by the vast majority the of the world...........we can see by the reams of evidence saddam had planned a huge invasion of the US and now that we have all his plans and his super sercet weapons......oh wait.....never mind....
we usually congratulate those people for being honest and straight forward.....we are huge hypocrites.......

Hussein, while not a member of the Hitler-Stalin-Mao strata, was nonetheless a diabolical, cruel, and dangerous totalitarian brute.

No matter where one stood with regards to the war, and there were rational views on both sides, only one with no humanity could not be glad that this monster has been captured.

The Iraqis should set up a Nuremburg-type tribunal and give him a fair, transparent, and lawful trial. Just like in Germany, Japan, the Balkans, and South Africa, the record will be recorded for all time. And that can serve as the cornerstone to a new reality for these people who as human beings like the rest of us deserve much better than Ba'athist brutality.

I look at this as potentially a great thing. It is the best opportunity for us to say, "Mission accomplished" and get the hell out. In six months nobody will care who's in charge in Iraq, just like by 1977 nobody gave a **** that S.Vietnam had gone Communist.

What a scumbag - glad he's in custody. For all his talk about martyrdom and fighting to the last bullet, he gave up with a whimper, not a bang - couldn't even off himself ala Hitler, and in the best Barney Fife tradition he kept his pistol in his holster. The boy wasn't lookin' too dapper anymore either after a few weeks in his spacious 3 bedroom hole in the ground. God Bless America and all our military personnel.

Let me get to this before Marley beats me to it, but let's not forget our Intel folks who lined up the mission, CIA and DOD intel. And of course, hats off to the 4th ID for a great job.

I am sure the brave soldiers of the 4th ID will be glad to know that this is "potentially a great thing."

I disgaree with the Nuremburg trial scenario. If we give him to the the Hague then the death penalty will be out the window and they might not give him back to the Iraqi people for trial. Let the Iraqi's handle this low-life.

How about for being a Vichy government dickhead, for starters. My condolences go out to....... Ramsey Clark, the protesters, International Answer, Peachnutt, FRance, Germany, Barbara, Susan Sarandon, the human shields, Fidel Castro, Michael Moore, Howard Dean, Sean Penn, and all who literally worked to have Saddam NOT removed from power. If these folks would have had their way Saddam would literally be relaxing in one of his palaces right this second and not in a f*cking JAIL CELL!!!That is the truth. It is not an exaggeration. The mass graves, 300,000 as we speak, would have been filled up even more. It kind of gives you a warm feeling, no?

I say Sean Penn and Barbara and the rest should be made to dig up the mass graves.

Derek's respect for the democratic process and diversity of opinion are right on course, I see. Why not just line the leftists 'em up and shoot them? Save you the time of shipping them to Iraq with taxpayer dollars. Nuke France while you're at it. Pretend it was an accident, you don't seem to be able to tell Iraqis apart from the French anyway.
I hope everyone who supported Saddam is brought to justice, too- though that would include some former American Presidents and a few people in the Pentagon and White House today, so maybe that's a bad idea.



What I would've written if I didn't have to defend myself from the Rush brigade is "Good post, KnownRider, I agree completely."

Schroeder congratulates Bush

Sunday, December 14, 2003 Posted: 1:16 PM EST (1816 GMT)



(CNN) -- World leaders who divided over the war in Iraq are united in welcoming the capture of former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein.

German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, who opposed the U.S.-led war, wrote to George W. Bush saying: "With great happiness I have learnt of the capture of Saddam Hussein. I congratulate you on the successful mission.

"Saddam Hussein has brought unspeakable suffering over his own people and the whole region. I hope that with his capture the efforts of the international community to the reconstruction and stabilization of Iraq will be furthered."

A statement from French President Jacques Chirac, who was also against the war, said: "The president is delighted with Saddam Hussein's arrest.

"It is a major event that would strongly contribute to the democratization and stabilization of Iraq and allow Iraqis to find again the control of their destiny in a sovereign Iraq."

French Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin added: "The page of the Iraqi dictatorship is thus turned."

Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov said Saddam's arrest would "strengthen security" and help move along political progress in Iraq.

In a written statement to CNN, Ivanov said: "Moscow believes that Saddam Hussein's arrest will help strengthen security in Iraq and will help activate the political mediation of the situation in that country with an active role of the United Nations."

Now on a state visit to Chile, Ivanov also said that "as for Saddam's fate -- it should be decided by the Iraqi people."

U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan said Saddam's capture offered "an opprtunity to give fresh impetus to the search for peace and stability in Iraq, on the basis of an inclusive and fully transparant process."

Annan reiterated the readiness of the U.N. to do "everything possible to help Iraqis, if asked and as circumstances permit."

UK Prime Minister Tony Blair -- Bush's main ally -- said: "This is very good news for the people of Iraq. It removes the shadow that has been hanging over them for too long of the nightmare of a return to the Saddam regime. This fear is now removed." (Full story)

Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar said it was "a great day for everyone" and for "stability in the world." In a statement on Spanish TV, he added: "Saddam was the cause of all of the poverty in Iraq. From now on, terrorist groups are closer to being defeated."

Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, in Paris, said Saddam's capture would have "a demoralizing effect" on his supporters and could result in a decrease in attacks on coalition targets in Iraq.

NATO Secretary General George Robertson said: "I have heard the news and greatly welcome it. I hope it will lead to greater stability for the people of Iraq."

George W. Bush met senior White House officials Sunday morning in the Oval Office to plan how to respond publicly.

Democratic presidential candidate and retired general Wesley Clark called for a "very public" war crimes trial. "We've been due some good news, and this is good news," he said from The Hague, where he is testifying in the war crimes trial of former Serb president Slobodan Milosevic.
