    Poor Qasim...Saddam is deader than Michael Jackson...he should move to the US where LGBT is celebrated. They'll throw him a parade and take him to Disney World and if he can sing even halfway decent, he can be on American Idol

    That's right Republicans, just laugh and ignore the facts. If this was you though, you wouldn't be laughing. So much for Iraq being so much better with Saddam overthrown. Oh, don't forget that Women also had more rights under Saddam then they do now.

    I didn't know that Hillary, Rahm Emanuel, and Joe Biden were republicans. You know, three of the top-ranking members of Obama's staff?

    What the hell are you referring to? The fact they supported the war? (I know Hillary and Biden did. Not sure about Rahm.) When I said Republicans, I was referring to the posters above me.

    :lol: Evil laugh....I love stirring his shitpot.

    Can you explain how women had more rights with Saddam in power. You mean the right to be raped by his sons? The right to be banned from any public meetings and from the right to vote?

    What's the matter? Does it make you mad when people who don't agree with you make jokes about your position? How tragic!!! I'm sure the democrats never did such a horrible thing....oh wait...there was the one time that some democrats poked fun at Sarah Palin and Carrie Prejean ... I think it had to do with teen pregnancy and gay marriage.... hmmmm... anyhoo....as I was saying, if you're gonna bitch about people attacking your opinion (especially on THIS subject) you might want to go to a democrat friendly thread site.

    You weren't making a joke about my position, you were making a joke about the people. That's where I find fault with it.

    As for the women having more rights? Just go to google for two seconds, from the first page alone:

    Women had more rights under Saddam - Feministing

    Iraqi Women Targeted by Campaign of Violence - ABC News

    I'm not saying it was as you said "Disney World" but it was alot better for both groups then it is now.

    Did anyone ever think that maybe the IRAQI PEOPLE don't like gays? What do Shiites believe about homosexuality?
    The original post says nothing about WHICH people they are afraid of. I am guessing they are afraid of civilians, not the new government. Free countries seem to have higher crime rates than dictatorships. In Saudi Arabia, you can leave a Rolex on the sidewalk, and no one will pick it up. Why? Because the penalty for doing so it cutting off the hand. I am sure under the brutal reign of Saddam, the crime rate was much lower than now.
