    Arlen Specter:  "Saddam loyalists will be dispirited."

    Huh?  They've got a martyr to fight for now.  This complete & utter lack of understanding of the motivation of "Saddam loyalists" is one reason we're in such deep shit.  

    It's all about the base, baby....all about the base.

      What martyr?

      Saddam's still alive.  We'll lock him up in the Tower of London and hold him for trial.

      This complete & utter lack of understanding of the motivation of "Saddam loyalists" is one reason we're in such deep shit.  

      I think we have a very good understanding of the "Saddam loyalists".  They're fucking pissed that they lost power.  They're fucking pissed that they no longer can oppress the masses.

      And they are damned well not going to walk away unchallenged on that, so they're causing considerable death and destruction.

      FYI: dKos censors posts critical of Howard Dean by deleting them.
