Saddam to Declare Candidacy for Iraqi Elections
Overthrown Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, who was arrested by US forces last December, reportedly plans to run as a candidate in the Iraqi elections scheduled for January 2005.
Saddam's lawyer Giovanni di Stefano told Denmark's B.T. newspaper that Saddam decided during one of their discussions that he would declare his candidacy for the elections.
Stefano said that there was no law that prevented Saddam from appearing on the ballot. He added that Saddam hopes to regain his presidency and palaces via the democratic process.
Contrary to the statements of Iraqi Interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi, Stefano claims, "Saddam has no chance to be tried before the elections. Moreover, no international law prevents him from coming forward."
Saddam's lawyer defends that the ambiguity in Iraq will favor Saddam at the polls. Stefano remarked that a recent Gallup poll indicates that 42 percent of the Iraqi people want their former leader back.
Meanwhile, evaluating the conditions of Saddam in jail, Allawi said that Saddam had asked him for mercy.

Was our intentions to help them in the first place? I thought we were looking for "nuck-u-lur" weapons or just weapons of mass distruction.

Exactly... we didnt go into Iraq to help liberate the people. We have people that need liberated in Queens, Compton, South Central, Phili, Detroit... I could go on and on. We have enough of our own problems that need taken care of.

Laugh your ass off about them spitting in the face of AMERICA. Dont think it is just against Bush. So it would all be for nothing and you laugh because good people died there just so Saddam could be re elected.

He did do some good things though... which are sadly out weighed by the negative things hes done.
