    Saddam's sons killed

    http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/meast/...ons/index.html

    CNN reports 2 of Saddam's sons have probably been killed in a shootout with the 101st. No matter your thoughts on the war, this should be a good thing. Uday Hussein was a terrible, terrible person.

    Agreed. Good riddance!

    Just Uday? The entire family is evil.

    Yeah, but Uday has a special place in hell (read: Flint) reserved for him.

    why were they terrible (im not arguing I just haven't heard anything about them because im a loser)

    EDIT: except for:
    Uday has a reputation for violence that includes torturing Iraqi athletes who do not meet expectations.

    Stories I've heard of Uday in college (which sounds like a crappy movie) say he would force attractive women to date him, rape them,and then have them executed, either himself or by his bodyguards.

    It's the best thing I've heard this year.
    Although I wish they were captured alive so they could tell where is there father hidding( if he is alive ).

    I really don't think they are human, because what they've done in Iraq is horrible.

    Check out the 'arab cartoons'...

    edit: link thingy failed (could be a 'western plot'...) - just copy & paste link.

    The link didn't work...

    By the way, I thought it was Aljazeerah TV, but it's not.

    Did they give details as to what exactly happened? It seems that the US was tipped off and knew exactly where they were, but did the US have the intent to kill them, or to capture them alive and were fired upon? Probably the latter, but afterall we did try killing Saddam the first night of the war with tomahawks.

    What I have heard is we were tipped off by a citizen they were there. We went in. Called for them to surrender and they refused and opened fire. Then we got into a long 6 hour firefight eventually killing them.

    So now some of Iraq's most brutal oppressors are dead. Let's all cheer, right? Wrong! The Iraqis can be relieved that such evil men can no longer bother them, but there is still something a little bizarre about cheering because of someone's death.

    I am certain they won't be missed. Not even Usama ben Laden would call them martyrs of the faith.
