Former President of Iraq Sadam Hussain was in tears last night as details of latest audiotaped message from al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden was leaked to him by a friendly American GI. In the tape Osama compared Bush to Sadam Hussain and called both of them to be of the same ilk. An enraged Sadam was reported to have retorted "I wish he would say that to my face, bloody infidal." "How dare he compare me to him ( Mr Bush), his killing by the million. I swear ! I never touched a soul in my life". When the GI reminded him of the gassing of the Kurds which killed 5000, Sadam replied "Britain under the direction of Churchill gassed Kurds killing 30,000 and he was recently voted Greatest Britain to have ever lived- going by that yardstick doesn't it make me the greatest Iraqi to have ever lived - ok ok since in my case only 5000 died which are far less then Churchilian 30,000 I will be satisfied for greatest Takriti to have ever lived".
In the Morning legal experts in the defamation field were summoned to Sadam's cell to chalk out a strategy to deal with Usama's insult. Transcripts from microphones hidden in Sadam cell reveal Sadam lawyer Ezi Liebler telling him that little action can be taken in view of the both parties residing in two different jurisdictions. The best hope was to wait for Osama to put the words into writing and publishing the same in the UK where anti-defamation precedence was strong. Liebler also cautioned Sadam as to the outcome of the case warning him of the stark similarities between himself and Bush:
Both have the blood of innocent Muslims by the tens of thousands on their hands.
Bush launched aggressive war on Iraq and Afghanistan. Sadam against Kuwait and Iran.
Mr Liebler though mentioned one distinct and important pro point for Sadam's case. Sadam's were limited adventures targeting a select number of people and a static number of victims and causalities. Bush by the time Usama pen's his autobiography could be rightfully staking his claim for the third member of the unholy trinity (Hitler, Stalin and Bush) which could be decisive in persuading a London jury to give a verdict in favour of Sadam-thus nailing Osama with compensatory damages of several hundred pounds.
