saddam is dead.....
30 Dec 2006
ok. number one. the spam test on indiymedia...if you dont see it and dont put it in....and then you press 'back'...it shouldnt delete everything you just wrote.

i cant believe its all gone. can we change that???

but long to short:

i just got home and wrote that and now its gone.

except this:

every news "outlet" ("OUT-LET" is the most insane thing to ever call anything that only allows you to read and not contribute anything to. why dont the internet sites allow for a comments section. why am i only allowed to absorb but not put out?) ok so they are all like, using key words about saddam like: he is ruthless, and cruel and ruthless ruthless ruthless, he killed 148 people and was convicted of this....wow. thats ONE TENTH less or one fifth than out precious leader has killed in that same country. and the boston herald, which obviously is a piece of propaganda...the headline today was: saddam set to swing. how disgusting and disrespectful of human life in general.

but even news outlets ive come to trust like truthout are like: saddam is executed. but no single news media thing ever says anything but: he was so ruthless and criminal he executed one hundred and fourty eight people (like ten times LESS than we have in iraq...). every single thing i read is pure propaghanda. even things ive come to trust. they outline his life, saying wow, he was arrested when he was like 20 hes so terrible.....and everyones all: ruthless, ruthless and bad bad. i looked it up and i could find was garbage. no legitimate information. come on!

i turst truthout. but even they agree
truthout.com says: Baghdad - Former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein, who rose from humble beginnings to build the Arab world's most ruthless dictatorship but whose fall unleashed a turbulent era for his nation and the world, was executed early Saturday morning in Baghdad, according to Iraqi state television...blah blah blah.


im just really pissed off. i read news and i read it and thats that, im not allowed to comment on it. why dont they have a part on the news on the internet that says, post a comment. why cant i post a comment? why is no one against this???

every leader is ruthless. why is saddam singled out? and why should i care? i feel nothing. who can care anymore?

and as an act of propagana.....why did they pick such a stupid time??? what morons. in between holidays when no one should give a shit because everyone cares more about themselves at these times. what a dumb waste of a life.

oh ha ha. on the news they said: they have to execute him before a muslim holiday...but they never said which holiday. probably cause it wasnt ramadan and thats the only holiday our nimble western minds can accept. so what holiday??? why, "one of sacrifice"!!!!!!!!

sacrifices are gifts...so we messed up there too..

and cnn or yahoo is all: he had a 'cult like following' in his country. a) the word cult conjures up images that all the followers are wrong and crazy. by definition! but ever think that if he has followers in his country that then they might...uh....agree with him. this is an idea also know as...democracy....... oops.


i hate writing things then having them deleted and then having to write them again. but yeah.




while talking about the herald: the cover story was a pregnant mom who already who had one kid, smiling whose husband died in the war and the caption was" daddy was a hero"

ive had enough.
