Saddam In A Cage to Omar Cages The Comments Section

The Sun, the Number One selling newspaper in all of Great Britain reveals that Saddam will be tried in a Hannibal Lecter like cage.

SADDAM Hussein will be forced to sit in a Hannibal Lecter-style cage during his trial.

Top-secret photos of the Baghdad courtroom being built in readiness for the deposed Iraqi dictator’s impending day of judgment are in The Sun today.

The centrepiece will be the reinforced metal cage, similar to the one used to house cannibal Lecter — played by Sir Anthony Hopkins in 1991 movie Silence of the Lambs.

What the Iraqis and the Slovak people have in common ( Via Michael Novak - The Corner)


'. . .Many of you can still recall the exhilaration of voting for the first time after decades of tyranny. And as you watched jubilant Iraqi dancing in the streets last month, holding up ink-stained fingers, you remembered Velvet Days. For the Iraqi people, this is their 1989, and they will always remember who stood with them in their quest for freedom.

"In more recent times, we have witnessed landmark events in the history of liberty. A Rose Revolution in Georgia, an Orange Revolution in Ukraine, and now a Purple Revolution in Iraq....

"Iraqis have demonstrated their courage and their determination to live in freedom, and that has inspired the world. It is the same determination we saw in Kiev's Independent Square, in Tbilisi's Freedom Square, and in this Square almost 17 years ago.'"

Omar, upset about the abuse of the facilities, lays down the Gauntlet on the Iraq The Model comments section:

Each reader will have the right to post ONLY 2 COMMENTS and nothing more than that. Any reader who violates this temporary rule will be banned for indefinite time. Moreover, anonymously posted comments will be deleted. I don't know if I'm going to have the time to keep monitoring the section but I will do my best to keep the section clean.
We have always enjoyed reading your comments and we still enjoy reading most of them but there is a number of comments that are unacceptable and can harm the reputation of this blog and it's readers as well.

This rule is active starting from this moment.

And I don't think I need to remind you that comments that incite violence and/or racism and comments that contain threats and/or effensive language are not permitted on this blog's comment section too.

A bit harsh in my opinion, but it's the Fadhils' blog and they can run it any way they want.
I hope they opt for a Lizardoid LGF Posting Etiquette and Registration System, which is less restrictive but still fruitful and engenders good on-topic conversation, humor, and interesting OT posts.

And former California Governor and current blogger Jerry Brown (Hat tip: LGF) would likely disagree with Omar's actions:

Vitriol can irritate, but it is often the price of freewheeling discussion and the discovery of important stuff.
