Saddam Turns 66 today, without the usual forced adulation from Iraqis:
Last year, Saddam threw himself a country-wide party, complete with tens of thousands of Iraqis staging highly choreographed anti-American
demonstrations. Saddam's son Qusay renamed Iraq's state-run Youth Television station "Birthday Television" for the occasion, and Saddam was given
a giant pink birthday cake in his hometown of Tikrit, along with a golden statue of the 12th-century warrior prince Saladdin.
There was also a road race in his honor, dozens of new Saddam statues and the premiere of a new play based on a novel Saddam is believed to have
written. The performance received rave reviews in the government-controlled press, which also featured scores of love letters to Saddam from Iraqis.
ABC news report offers readers ideas about giving Saddam gifts for his birthday.
So....does anyone here at ATS have any suggestions for what would make an appropriate birthday gift for Saddam?
