A Raed post
Another post from Raed, he is fantasising about his child-hood days, and how he hoped for Saddam's fall. He does not seem especially afraid. About much.
I was surprised yesterday while reading this news about Saddam's trial: After more than 19 months in U.S. custody, Saddam Hussein now faces trial for the first time, in a case centering on the killing of 150 people from Dujail, scene of a 1982 assassination attempt against him.
I used to daydream during my high school years in Baghdad about the day that Saddam will fall; it was one of my fantasies. I wanted to know all the secrets behind his irresponsible and aggressive decisions since he came to power in the early eighties.
Read whole thing, all the way to the bottom.
I know a lot of the heavy-weight mega-blogs are sitting on their fingers about this, and rightly so, nobody wants to do anything "rash". with all that power.
Still, as a smaller fish, a quite tiny fish actually, I'm taking my cues from Khalid's friends. And while they're still posting it, I'm still linking it.
Besides, Khalid used to post here. I could hardly sit idly by twiddling my thumbs. Could I now.
Update; also, if anybody is near by Raed could you tell him his template is squished up and looks bit funny. I've heard about reading between the lines before, but half the text is disappearing into the margin. Sorry to be finnikity.
