  • Saddam's Forgive and Forget Policy

    http://www.cnn.com/2002/WORLD/meast/...sty/index.html

    Yes, that's right, Saddam says it will free all, but a few prisoners! In my opinion, this is a political ploy to try to legitimize recent elections, and encourage support. Saddam is banking on the hope that prisoners and their families will just forgive and forget all he's put them through. Mind you, many of the relatives did not know their relatives were imprisoned.

    I hope the world doesn't buy into Saddam's latest ploy. First, there is no way to legitimize those elections. And no one should believe this amnesty is going to be widespread and permanent.

    The decision only confirms the irrational behavior of the Iraqi dictator. He's trying to play the people of his country and the world for a fool. It's a nice move, but my trust in Saddam is at 0%. A man like him doesn't change overnight. He is likely not committed to reforming the cruel Iraqi and corrupt legal system. many of the people freed will either be killed or imprisoned within a few years. Saddam is a disperate man who once again displays just how far he will go to maintain his power just a little longer.

    Did you see the recent elections where Saddam got 100% of the vote? He is so out of touch that he thinks people we believe that? If it was setup so he got 70% of vote maybe someone could buy that.

      Saddam is like a kid who plays computer games, but needs cheat codes and hacks to win.

        It's very true....

        Hello,

        Had Saddam been more intelligent in his behavior, he would have seen it good to have a political opponent even if it only meant using him as a political puppet. He just needs to make it more believable than what he is announcing to the world with the current situation.

        But it proves that Saddam is afraid of ANY opposition, either imagined or real. I fear that as the situation worsens, he will also derange in his behavior towards all. Hence, Bush's valid argument that he must be removed at all costs.

        I guess all tryants across the world are alike, they all need a good spanking, provided specifically by our good country boys (Isn't that what every President tend to say?) from US Army.

        I wonder what kind of spanking will the US Army give?

          Indeed. The problem is that Saddam is caught in an absurd circle. Last time (in 1996 I think), Saddam won with 99,96% of the vote. This time around (especially with the coming clash with the U.S.), it would not make sense for him to get less than the previous time. So he pushed the whole thing to absurdity by saying he won with 100% of the vote

          I think he is only deceiving himself. The world opinion, and his own country, certainly does not buy that somebody can get a 100% approval vote in a country of 17 millions inhabitants.

            Well have you guys seen the ballot. It's not really that surprising.
