    doesn't seem to get it. All dictators never ever get it. So sick. Sadam was hanging in a rat hole hoping it will pass.

      Saddam offered to leave before the invasion of Iraq, but the offer wasn't accepted because the BusH admin wanted the invasion (according to this story, he wanted $1 billion too, but what a deal that would've been for the US taxpayers!).  Think of the deaths that would've been averted.
