This is funny, on so many levels. I don't know which is more absurd, the bizarre small-time manner in which Hussein 'ran' his country, or the fact that up until the very actual invasion, Hussein thought the U.S. would never *actually* invade because of how stupid that would be to actually do, or that even in the face of the invasion he was more concerned with the dangers of Shi'ite unrest. Though I think my favorite bit of absurdity is that one of Hussein's generals, having found out that there were, actually, no chemical or biological weapons to rely on for defense (Hussein only told his generals this in December of 2002!), was so "impressed" by Colin Powell's UN presentation, and the insistence of the Bush administration, that he began to suspect that maybe Hussein DID have wmds after all . . .

This farce is history, watch it happen; it's always been this way. Poor Iraq.

(I don't mean funny like haha funny, btw, I mean like crying.)
