This <a href="http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/si_online/news/2003/03/24/son_of_saddam/">story</a> makes you think a bit about what the Hussein Regime may do to the POW's they have captured. A leader that is willing to put his olympic atheletes through this...ugh I can't even say it. Just makes a knot in my stomach when I see all the anti-war protests going on. This guy needs to go down. I'm sorry if this sounds bad... And after the stuff they broadcast on tv yesterday...geesh.<br><br>
Yeah, I know...it's just that I can see where someone can say that words are better than fists, and that peaceful resolutions are best. But this regime has totally lost it. Canning the feet? Come on...these are crimes against humanity. You can't talk to someone who does that.... The US tried...<br><br>
OH...and for people on either side... I found <a href="http://dear_raed.blogspot.com">this</a> also very interesting... A blog from an Iraqi student in Baghdad. Should provide interesting reading... An eyewitness account from the other side....<br><br>Ben<br><br>
Not yet... But if you're willing to check out this guy's backside... just kidding. Seriously though, that's his proof. How else does someone get those kind of scars on a backside? We've seen so many olympic defectors...but none have accused their countries of atrocities like this... I'm sure we'll know more soon enough...<br><br><br>"I know what they went through," adds Haydar, who escaped from Iraq in 1998 and now lives in London. "I was tortured four times after matches. One time, after a friendly [match] against Jordan in Amman that we lost 2-0, Uday had me and three teammates taken to the prison. When we arrived, they took off our shirts, tied our feet together and pulled our knees over a bar as we lay on our backs. Then they dragged us over pavement and concrete, pulling the skin off our backs. Then they pulled us through a sandpit to get sand in our backs. Finally, they made us climb a ladder and jump into a vat of raw sewage. They wanted to get our wounds infected.<br>
