Al Jazeera: Saddam takes refuge in Russian embassy

Al Jazeera is reporting that Saddam Hussein is alive and has taken refuge in the Russian embassy. If that’s legit, what a diplomatic cluster-fuck…the Russians have been anti-war since the start. The US is going to want to put him on trial for crimes against humanity, but I doubt the Russians would turn him over. What’s going to happen now?

Got a link? http://english.aljazeera.net/ isn’t reporting this.

A smarter move for Saddam would have been to hole up at Guest’s house.

Wow, this could cause problems for years to come.

Just the threat of him taking back power could drive people nuts. I bet the Russians are demanding more ‘economic aid’. I’d consider cutting them off it completely :[

Yeah, anyone who comes from an eastern European country is untrustworthy scum.

Get with the program. Eastern Europe are our pals, sans Russia itself: Poland, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Romania… the list goes on and on.

The Russians better put an extra guard on duty today… Just in case the Iraqis read this. ;)
