Dead Already

It's the U.S. that overthrew him and the U.S. who holds him in custody, but it seems that Saddam's pathological hatred for Iranians still governs his concerns.

Yesterday, Saddam's lawyer announced that Iran was behind a plot to assassinate him.

The spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry, Hamid Reza Asefi, who like most of Iranian officials always has a sassy response ready at hand (hazer javab!), rejected the accusations by saying: “Saddam has been dead since a long time ago, he doesn’t need to be assassinated”.

Why should the Iranians care anyway, now that the pro-IRI Jaafari has been installed as the Iraqi prime minister, courtesy of the illegal war on Iraq?
