Yeah, I think you're right about Iraqis wanting Saddam in power. BUT, how many citizens of various nations in this world really admire their local politicians, their nations' leaders? Face it - every government in this world is corrupt - we're ALL under the rule of tyrannts (including & especially us here in the States). Genuinely loving & admiring a tyrannt can be different from settling for a tyrannt. Does this make sense to you?

What I was trying to point out was that a fringe religious leader, such as Osama, would *most likely* have more sway over hearts & minds than an ex-politician. Saddam would be more likely to lose his following than Osama. BUT, there are always exceptions to this generalization....
