Saddam Steals Democrats' Play Book - Or is it Vice Versa?

Tell me if any of these talking points sound familiar.

Hussein Writes to Americans, Urging Iraqi Pullout

BAGHDAD, Iraq, July 20 -- Defense lawyers for Saddam Hussein released a letter on Thursday that he recently wrote in prison that attempts to persuade the American people to demand a troop pullout because President Bush misled them into the Iraq war.

The 5,000-word letter is a rambling treatise outlining what Mr. Hussein asserts are the false reasons that the Bush administration used to justify the war in Iraq, from weapons of mass destruction to Iraqi links with Al Qaeda. Mr. Hussein blames Iran and pro-Israel interests for helping lead the Americans into war. He invokes the specter of Vietnam and the spirit of Mao Zedong, saying the Chinese revolutionary is "laughing in his grave because his prediction has been fulfilled and America is a paper tiger." ...

"People of America, the misfortunes that have afflicted you and afflicted our Arab nation and within it our heroic people -- including the breakdown of America's standing and reputation -- were only caused by the reckless behavior of your government and by pressure from Zionism," Mr. Hussein wrote, according to a translation of the letter sent by e-mail to reporters.

"The massacres and blood that now flows in the streets and countryside of Iraq in torrents -- the responsibility for that falls on America before all others," he added.

The release of the letter came on the 14th day of a hunger strike by Mr. Hussein and three of his co-defendants.

I can't tell if this was written but Howard Dean, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Saddam Hussein or Cindy Sheehan.

Why is it Democrats always agree with murderous dictators?

Think about it... If Saddam Hussein were released from the prison where he is being held for charges of genocide and war crimes, he'd be a plug and play replacement for basically any of the Democratic leadership today. He could run for office.

They could even print up button for this fall's elections, "I agree with Saddam. Vote Democrat 2006"

Well gee, I guess now I'll have to think the Iraq war was a good idea and is going quite well, or else I'm just like Saddam. ;)

Mantis, what a way to illogically attempt to make fun of JT's post.

If A then B does not lead to If not B then Not A.

Interesting post J, but it is mainly a demonstration of how Saddam has used the media in an attempt to further his cause. Remember the fellow trying to tussle the hair of the child hostage while brimming that big smile? Or whining about the starving Iraqi's while he diverted money to bribes to Russia, China and France as well as his military?

Say, that sounds like the Democratic playbook as well!

Saddam's got the wrong playbook.

His defense should be that he has all powers to protect his people the way he sees fit in their war with Islamofacists.

Why is it Democrats always agree with murderous dictators?

Why is it Republicans always support murderous dictators? Saddam was your lapdog, the good ol' Shah -- when the Reagan administration came in, its first chore was to establish rapproachment with South American governments that had been condemned during the Carter administration -- support of Apartheid in South Africa, Marcos...there's a much longer list, but you wouldn't know what to do with it.

Asti. .

Given things like the compisition of the UN human rights council, and the fact that their peacekeepers apparently rape and prostitute little girls wherever they go, they have little standing to talk about 'human rights' - and AMnesty international might as well say "A whol;ly owned and operated subsidiary of the DNC" given that they seem rather. .selective. . about which "human rights abuses" to highlight.

Furthermore, shoudl we mention all of the democratic love for Fidel Castro(Jimmy Carter) Hugo CHaez(Jimmy Carter) . . .

FUrthermore,. every administration is essentially a new government and not responsible for the actions of its predecessors in the sense that they did not order them done - so even if you were correct your point is utterly and completely in all ways shapes and forms irrelevant to the current issues.

Where is the full text? Isn't this typical U.S. media brainwashing?
If he wrote this letter to the American people, why can't we read it? What's the fear? Or, isn't the real truth simply that you just want to spin this letter for your own personal aims while U.s. boys die there for false reasons and financial gain of our "leaders"?

We should all no by now that when american cannot control you, you are been tag as a cummunist. However in Cuba we do iliterate person and we produce the best doctors and engineers. So America can rest assure that wether Castro dies or not Socialism is embeded in the heart of all Cuban.
