Saddam Hussein as Rodney King…..
A somber Saddam Hussein called on Iraqis to forgive each other Tuesday, when he returned to court two days after being sentenced to death for crimes against humanity in another case.
Saddam, speaking to the court in the afternoon session, cited references to the Prophet Muhammad and Jesus who had asked for forgiveness for those who opposed them.
It’s nice to see that Saddam agrees with the rest of us that the killing in Iraq should stop. The Kurds, the Shiites, the Iranians, the Kuwaitis, and the victims of the “night of the long knives” are all wondering why Saddam didn’t think of this sooner.
