Saddam Saturday

It's Saddam Saturday! Besides the dearly departed dictator, you can choose from the strident song stylings of Roma Saddam (Flash site with music), "Saddam" a direct-to-video Italian film about two contractors/mercenaries not necessarily in Iraq, "Saddam Noel" a comedy mashup by popular Spanish-language YouTubers CualCerdo (contains harsh non-English language) or the Saddam Virus (a 'Stupid Virus Strain' from 1989). And Saddam.com is for sale (again). I'm somewhat surprised (and encouraged) I didn't find more web opportunists using the name...

or you could watch him die, over and over again.

here's hoping it starts a trend of war-mongering brutal dictators getting executed on a regular basis.

I posted this on MetaChat, and believe it's still relevant...
We haven't really progressed much as human beings, have we? ...The pointlessness of revenge, and the world on a ghoulish deathwatch.

Watching Saddam die with the insurgents:

Abu A'isha, a mid-level commander of an insurgency group in west Baghdad, short, stout, in his forties and dressed in a blue tracksuit, was more calm. 'It's better for the jihad,' he explained. 'Every time the mujahideen do an operation they say it's the people of Saddam. Where is Saddam now? Let's see if his death will affect the jihad. Of course it won't.'

And while you watch him hang you can listen to Gwar's Saddam A Go-Go. Now that's good listening.
