saddam hussein

A soldier brought this bronze bust home from Iraq in 2003:

Saddam-Hussein-Bronze-Bust-1

Saddam-Hussein-Bronze-Bust-2

17 inches in height, it formed part of a 15 ft. statue of Saddam.

Lucky guy he was able to get this back to the US.  I wonder what his rank was?  If it wasn’t high up I imagine he really had to hide this thing due to its potential worth. Sure sounds like it will be a nice payday for him and his family wow.

If I had hundreds of millions of dollars in the bank I’d buy it.  I’d probably build a fountain where a soldier or a cherub was peeing on his head just for kicks.

Thoughts?

Federal prosecutors said former Staff Sgt. Joel Cleve Miller, 40, was found guilty of possession of an illegal chrome AK-47 that he smuggled back from Iraq during a 14-month tour in 2005.  When he returned to his home in Hemet, he bragged to several friends that he smuggled the gun back after it once belonged to Saddam Hussein’s Royal Guard.

As they say “Loose lips lose priceless AK’s and could end up doing 10 years in federal prison”.  Dumbass…

Is the issue more that it’s an NFA weapon? Or that he smuggled it back?  Or both?  I’m just wondering which is considered more serious.  Like if I was there and smuggled Saddam’s gold toilet seat back would I be in just as much trouble?

This looks disappointing:

From the same guy who was Borat; and unsurprisingly it looks like it could be a sequel to Borat.  Probably a couple laughs in it, but my guess is a lot of the funny parts are in the trailer.

Opening in theaters May 11th, 2012.

Anyone dying to see this?

Qusay Hussein, dead son of Saddam Hussein busts some moves at an iraq rager:

Comparing against the criteria required to be a certified Middle East Hipster:

  • White high-top NewBalance kicks? √
  • White hammer pants? √
  • Tucked in white tee perfectly bloused? √
  • Studded black leather belt? √
  • Tightly manicured stache? √
  • Vintage Rayban Wayfarers? √
  • Denim stars & stripes jacket? √ (extra points for being especially ironic)

Yep he definitely covered all his bases.   With swag like that he could have got any girl in the room.

OH SNAP!!! Did he pull out the invisible rifle move at 0:57?!!!!

I felt like his friend in purple was trying to teach me how to dougie, Iraq style.  Mute the vid on the left at Youtube Doubler to see what I mean. Also, it appears he was wearing American Apparel before the brand was even invented… Way ahead of his time that one.

Bagdad, the playground for the rich and infamous, where anything can be bought – but for a price. This is Uday Hussein’s world and with his depraved lust for debauchery and immorality, he helps himself to whatever turns him on. When army lieutenant Latif Yahia, is summoned to Saddam’s palace, he is faced with an impossible request – to be Uday’s ‘fiday’ – his body double, or have his family condemned to death.

Wow.. that looks like it’s going to be awesome!

Release Date: 29 July 2011 (USA)
