    And for some more fun in the sun, Saddam added some spice to the pot by issuing the following in his 40-minute address to the Iraqi people:

    Well. I think the Chinese might have some issues with Saddam proclaiming Iraq is the "mother of civilization," but I'm not looking for Hu Jintao to launch a righteous response; he appears to prefer to save that stuff for the US and Japan.

    I am curious as to how Saddam can say this stuff with a straight face. It's almost funny as hell.

    I think he could be referring to Babylon, which is ancient. But, of course, his people did talk of "the Mother of All Battles".
