Quote Of The Day: Voice Of Cruel Experience Edition

"I call on you not to hate because hate does not leave space for a person to be fair and it makes you blind and closes all doors of thinking."
-- Saddam Hussein

Saddam's farewell (soon, please!) letter to his previously brutalized subjects tells us four things:
  1. He has apparently admitted his rule was not fair, but rather, he ruled blindly and without thinking, since his was a government most certainly full of hate.
  2. He still thinks he has influence among Iraqis -- and he's probably right on that one.
  3. His followers aren't listening. A letter from the Baathists also published today said, "The Baath and the resistance are determined to retaliate, with all means and everywhere, to harm America and its interests if it commits this crime."
  4. The global gag reflex was tested this morning, and it still works.
