Saddam Doesn't Like Froot Loops!

In GQ magazine on shelves June 28, five American National Guard soldiers tell their stories of guarding Saddam Hussein. According to the Drudge report, Saddam still believes he is the President of Iraq and will be returned to power. But more interesting are these tidbits:

· He is proud that his sons died for their country. (Made me happy.)

· While having little positive to say about either President George W. Bush or his father, George H. W. Bush, he expresses a desire to be “friends” with them. (Maybe play a round or two of golf.)

· He also expresses a longing for the days when Ronald Reagan was still president. (Oh, so do I!)

· He says that he never had an association with Osama bin Laden. ("I never had snacks with that man...Osama bin Laden!)

· Hussein is a “clean freak,” afraid of germs, obsessively washing his hands and carefully wiping his plate and utensils before eating. (This is not the norm?)

· He gave the soldiers advice on how to handle women (“You gotta find a good woman,” he told them. “Not too smart, not too dumb, not too old, not too young. In the middle.”) (As the song says, "If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife, get an ugly girl to marry you.)

· He thinks Dan Rather is “a good guy.” (Sacrilege!)

· He loves Doritos chips and Raisin Bran Crunch cereal…but he won’t touch Froot Loops. (The heathen!)

That Saddam thinks Dan Rather is a "good guy" and he hates Froot Loops should be enough to send him to the gallows!

Appears so, rg. I think I understand why she left and why she won't stay this time either. But, Sandybanks will have to deal with that in his own time.
