First, look Saddam's face and neck. It looks like it has been burned or he is suffering from a rash.
Second, what do the British (sorry to those over the pond, Frog and Deep) feel they have to gain by showing Saddam in his Fruit of the Loom's (AKA Tighty Whities)? I cannot find a link to the article as yet. If someone can, maybe it will explain the coverpage? :ohno:
Edit: Darnit, it won't let me show the dyanmic page image. Hopefully you can click on the link to see it.
Drudge has now posted the Sun Article. It is as follows:
THE noose beckons for the worldâ€™s most notorious prisoner as he whiles away his last days in an Iraqi jail.
Saddam Hussein, the Butcher of Baghdad, is today a broken man.
But hanging will be seen by victims and their relatives as too good for him after his sadistic 30-year reign of terror.
As The Sun newspaper's graphic pictures show, his years of corrupt and absolute power are over.
Moves are under way to spare his life in an act of mercy HE refused his victims.
But we learned last night that Saddam is almost certainly doomed to die.
He is being held behind bars and barbed wire somewhere near Baghdad awaiting trial some time next year.
He will be charged with crimes against humanity.
Tony Blair opposes the death penalty which is banned in Europe.
America, where murderers are still executed, is unlikely to interfere.
The tyrantâ€™s life may yet be saved in an act of clemency for the sake of Arab unity.
That move is almost certain to be voted down by a new regime which wants justice to be seen to be done.
So, we take pic's of Saddam in his FTL's, and think that his life will be spared because of the out pouring of sympathy?
For those who do not know my stance on this war in Iraq:
I felt it was right that we should go and save the people that were suffering under his regime. We removed Saddam from power, they have had their elections, their on their way on a final constititution, we've trained their army. We should have left the day the elections were over.
If the Iraqi's want democracy bad enough, they will fight for it. American's fought for democracy (even when it wasn't accepted by the majority of the population) and won against the British (I know I read it before, you guy's over the pond didn't want our lland anyway )
My concluding point: Let the Iraqi's deal with this. Our job is done. If they want to hang Saddam, let them. If they want to tie him up by his privates and hang him from a tree, fine by me. It is not up to the US, the UK, the Aussies, the UN, the insurgents. Because it is their country, and they have a right to say what happens to men such as Saddam.
Sorry for the rant, but I think I understand why the Iraqi's are saying right now "thanks for helping us out, but can you leave now?" We're like that relative that comes to visit and overstays our welcome.

There is nothing to be gained from the picture, just trying for higher sales. The picture appeared in the paper, but has been pulled from the website. Apparently some whiney yank objected and of course pressure was applied. The US are very pissed off about how the picture was leaked. Personally I think Saddam should be shackled to the back of a jeep and taken for a spin around the desert, at about 20 mph, enough for him to feel every stone for at least the first 15 minutes. Bastard.

Firstly The Sun is what we term Tabloid Trash, You would find more truth and intelligent content in the National Inquirer.
Well it seems that the New York Time's ran with it as well. It seems that's all they talked about on Talk Radio here in the State's today.
Our men and women are over there right now, risking their lives. You saw how they went nuts over the Quran in the toilet. Imagine what they will do about Saddam in his underwear.
Yep, this sure helps.

Saddam to sue over prison photos
Saddam Hussein plans to take legal action after a British newspaper published photos of him half-naked in his prison cell and doing his washing.
"We will sue the newspaper and everyone who helped in showing these pictures," said Saddam Hussein's chief lawyer Ziad Al-Khasawneh, speaking from Jordan.
The Sun newspaper said it would fight any legal action and said it planned to publish more photos on Saturday.
The US has launched an investigation into how the photos were leaked.
So how many tax dollars will we spend to investigate a picture of Saddam in his underwear that the coalition paid for? This is nuts!
