Saddam Still Dead
Saddam Hussein issued a statement from beyond the grave encouraging Iraqi citizens to fight to the death promising that “those who are martyred will be rewarded in heaven. Seize the opportunity, my brothers."
Perhaps something is lost in the translation but I generally don’t find opportunities to die very motivating. Unless, of course, Saddam is speaking from experience and is personally endorsing the idea.
By all means, “seize the opportunity!”
