Rumsfeld: I'm making you one offer and that is that you will be released and can chose for yourself a place of exile freely, in any country you like, on condition that you go on television and issue a condemnation of terrorism and order your men to stop these acts.
Saddam Hussein: Have you obtained the agreement of your president to this offer?
Rumsfeld: Yes, this offer has been agreed on in a meeting in which the President, Vice President, Secretary of State, and Chief of Intelligence took part. AndI have been authorized to inform you of this offer.
Saddam Hussein:[b/] It's a trifling offer.
Rumsfeld (with a sigh): We're also ready to bring elements close to you into the government.
Saddam Hussein: And what else?
Rumsfeld: You will be given generous financial assistance and security protection for you and your family in the country of your choice.
Saddam Hussein: Do you want to hear my conditions?
Rumsfeld: I would love to.
Saddam Hussein (with an air of superciliousness and superiority) I want first from you that you set a time table for your withdrawal from Iraq and that your government commit itself to it before the world and that you begin the withdrawal immediately.
Secondly, I ask you to release immediately all the Iraqi and Arab prisoners in the prisons you have set up or in which you have taken the freedom of tens of thousands of honorable people of Iraq. Thirdly, I ask from you to pledge to grant full compensation for the material losses that afflicted the Iraqi people as a result of your aggression against our country since the Mother of Battles in 1991 and until today. And I accept the assistance of an Arab and International Committee in estimating the extent of those losses.
Fourth, I ask that you return the money that you and your men plundered from the treasuries of Iraq, and its oil, in particular that criminal[L. Paul] Bremerand his gang of traitors and renegades.
Fifth, the return of the artifacts that you stole and gave to the archaeological artifact mafia. These are treasures that are beyond all the monetary value in the world, because they carry the history of Iraq and its civilization. It's true that you don't have any civilization or history and that the lifespan of your country is no more than a few hundred years, but all that must not serve to justify your theft and your hatred for the civilization of Iraq and the wealth of Iraq.
And sixth, you must hand over the weapons of mass destruction if you have found any and return to us the lives of all the martyrs whose lives you took and to return the honor of the noble women of Iraq whom you dishonored.

I've seen alot of evidence (here in these photos and otherwise) that
suggest that it is possible that Osama Bin Laden is not a real person
which I think is very likely - I mean think about it... They turn this
guy into the worst person in the world, all of America is tricked into thinking
he is going to kill them, then the Government basically has a green light
to invade any and every country that they (the government) says hes in? -
You can see it happenening already, FoxNews is begginning to hint that
Musab Al Zarqawi is now in Iran - and I bet you $100 that the US will be
invading Iran withing the next 6-months or so...
Wether they are real people or not, it is obvious to anyone who actually
thinks about it (in a critical way) that the US Government (in particular) has
trumped up the threat posed by Bin Laden and co. And they used 9/11
(wether instigated by the US or not) to justify going to war in any Arab
country they claim to be harbouring terrorism... If the US government
wanted to spread freedom and democracy, perhaps they should have gone
into Uzbekistan first (oh yeah, they support that monster)...
Those pictures of Saddam and his teeth are quite interesting... What do
you suppose will come of that? - Because that is seriously irrefutable
evidence - those two are seperate people - have the US taken blood
samples and fingerprints (etc) to compare? --- Imagine if it was the wrong
person, I wonder what all them right-wing fanatics will think then...

Here's a pic that is supposed to be in Iraq, turns out to be Turkey...
"We took this photo of downtown Baghdad while we were in Iraq. Iraq (including Baghdad) is much more calm and stable than what many people believe it to be. But, each day the news media finds any violence occurring in the country and screams and shouts about it - in part because many journalists are opposed to the U.S. effort to fight terrorism."

Sorry, it's Turkey.
Damascus: An Iraqi opposition group claimed yesterday that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein was rushed to a Baghdad hospital late on Sunday suffering from an apparent stroke after having officiated earlier at the country's biggest New Year's Day parade in 10 years.
The Iraqi leader was being treated for "a severe stroke" at Iben Sinna Hospital, said a statement issued by dissident leader Bayan Jaber, of the Supreme Council of the Islamic Revolution in Iraq.
The statement said the 63-year-old president's condition was unknown but that he was still in the hospital.
