    From wikipedia:

    The Special Republican Guard was controlled by the Special Security Organization and charged with protecting President Saddam Hussein, presidential sites, Baghdad, and responding to any rebellion, coup, or other threat to his power.[1]

    The things you learn.

    How could you compare the Parties in two entirely different political systems, though? Seems inane.

    True, his use of the term "REPUBLICAN" has no relation to the US Republican party; he was a fascist dictator.

    So, using this rationale, National Socialism - or Nazism - makes Obama and company Nazi's.

    Yeah idiot, where do you see 'Democrat' in National Socialism? I see 'Republican' in Republican Guard. What a totally witless piece of trash you just posted. :lol::lol::lol:

    His point was a valid one though. The word Republican doesn't mean American Republican, everywhere. That's just flat out wrong.

    Thank you for seeing the point I was attempting to illustrate. The poster above you is obviously too dense to see the comparo.
