Saddam Hussein could be executed as soon as tomorrow. Michael Jackson, not a fan of Hussein but instead a humanitarian opposed to the death penalty text messaged Iraqi judges asking that Hussein be given life in prison instead. Unfortunately Iraqi judges, not being part of Jackson's "Friends and Family" network never received Jackson's text message resulting in Iraqi chef's beginning preparation of Hussein's last meal.
"I'm just sick over this" Jackson told fans outside his unnamed Las Vegas Hotel (The MGM Grand). Hussein, judges say, will be executed no earlier than tomorrow, no later than Super Bowl Sunday leaving Vegas bookies plenty of time to wager on how long Saddam will sway in the desert wind before they cut him down and send him off to greet his virgins, sons, generals and Beelzebub.
Saddam's attorney, not pleased with the outcome has vowed to disappear like Jimmy Hoffa after a Teamster's raid should Saddam Hussein's sentence be carried out.
Michael Jackson, scheduled to perform at Vega's Circus Circus says that he will sing a special version of "Beat It" not specifically dedicated to Hussein but to all judges of brutal, tyrannical bloodthirsty war criminals who might wind up swinging from a noose if not for the leniency and mercy of their judges.
Anderson Cooper, now en-route to Baghdad has promised to hand deliver Jackson's "Leave him be" message to the Iraqi judges .. assuming Cooper's not blown up by a roadside bomb or, ripped apart by a Rocket Propelled Grenade or, kidnapped and beheaded on his way to the courthouse or, ..
"What Saddam did was wrong" Jackson said "but killing HIM fixes nothing."
