Thank you very much for putting up this site about your leader. You would not believe the trouble I have had trying to find decent pictures of Saddam Hussin on the Internet! Now, at last, I have more than I need. Rest assured they will be put to good to good use on my sites which deal with your president...
http://www.rjgeib.com/thoughts/burke/burke.html...and that it is extremely doubtful that the presentation will be flattering.
How ironic that you put up pictures of Saddam Hussein for humanity to see on the World Wide Web when you have outlawed Internet access in your own country and referred to it in an official government newspaper as the "the end of civilizations, cultures, interests and ethics." If your people are secure in their love of Saddam Hussein and happy to retain him as dictator, why should contact with the outside world worry you? Perhaps - being the wily survivor he is - Hussein realizes that the Internet is the censor's biggest challenge and the tyrant's worst nightmare. At any rate, I hope to be hearing more from your government over the Internet and World Wide Web.
I wish your President only what he deserves on this his birthday; God only knows when it might be his last.
P.S. Those pics of Saddam came out awfully swell, but remember what Tomas G. Masaryk said about tyrants nearly 50 years ago: "Dictators always look good until the last minutes."
Thank You For Filling in the Requested Information

To Whom it Might Concern:
I hope that your leader Saddam enjoys his birthday. May I assume that he will celebrate in the usual manner? That is, by abducting random Iraqi women and raping and murdering them as his son so enjoys, torturing suspected rivals to death, or maybe even plotting to invade a neighboring Arab nation and committing atrocities on its people.
However Saddam celebrates, I'm sure it will be a jolly good time for all involved.
As for cowardly sychophants like yourself, you deserve whatever you get from your evil, psychotic despot. It's too bad that nobody in your nation has the guts to whack that tyrant out!
Sincerely, James Downs
p.s.- That picture of Saddam on your index page reminds me of Adolf Hitler.
