... To Saddam.

I just received a request from the webmaster of Iraqi News who, apparently, wants to display "The Price of their Peace" as many people already do.

Just a reminder for everybody: my authorization is granted de facto. You don't need to ask me. Take it and use it. Contact me if you need help, email me if you like.

I don't have much information on this site (shame on me) and I had a hard time accessing it (slow connection. This is what happens when you leave the information highways in the hands of a state owned monopoly such as France Telecom) but judging by the editorials I read there, I'd say Iraqi News is on the side of democracy. (And possibly outside Iraq - anybody has information?)

Anyway, I guess I can reasonably assume that it's being watched over by Saddam's secret service.
I mean, it's what dictators are supposed to do, isn't it?

Maybe Saddam himself will watch the clip. Maybe it will drive him into a deep introspection and maybe he'll become aware of the gravity of his crimes and make the right decision (hint: it starts with "bullet" and ends with "in the head").

Or maybe he'll just deny the whole thing as usual.

Yeah, well... Let's wait for Tarek Aziz's disclaimer.
Higher, higher
The Price of their Peace can be seen in Canada, thanks to The Canadian Loudmouths and the Diffident Spectator joined the coalition alongside Corsair's Freehold who particularly deserves my gratitude (I'll get back to you by mail soon).

This is how, I guess, the dissidence enters the Popdex top 150.

Yep, that's The Register just behind. He he.

... Vers Saddam.

Je viens de recevoir une demande du webmaster d'Iraqi News qui souhaite, semble-t-il, afficher "Le Prix de leur Paix", ainsi que nombre d'entre vous le font déjà.

Juste un rappel pour tout le monde : mon autorisation est accordée de facto. Inutile de me demander. Prenez le et utilisez le. Contactez moi si vous avez besoin d'aide, écrivez moi si vous en avez envie.

Je ne dispose pas de beaucoup d'info sur ce site (honte sur moi) et j'ai eu du mal à y accéder (connexion lente. C'est ce qui arrive quand on laisse les clés du péage des autoroutes de l'information à un monopole d'état comme France Telecom) mais à en juger par les éditoriaux que j'ai pu y lire, je pense qu'Iraqi News est du côté de la démocratie. (et certainement hors d'Irak - quelqu'un a des informations ?)

Quoi qu'il en soit, je pense pouvoir raisonnablement assumer que ce site est étroitement surveillé par les services secrets de Saddam. Après tout, n'est ce pas ce qu'un dictateur est supposé faire ?

Peut être que Saddam lui même va voir le clip. Peut être que cela va le conduire à une profonde introspection, à prendre conscience de la gravité de ses crimes et finalement, à prendre la bonne décision (un indice : ca commence par "une balle" et ça finit par "dans la tête").

Ou peut être qu'il va encore tout nier en bloc.

Ouais, bon... on va attendre le démenti de Tarek Aziz.
Plus haut, plus haut
Le Prix de leur Paix peut être vu au Canada, merci à The Canadian Loudmouths et the Diffident Spectator a rejoint la coalition ainsi que Corsair's Freehold qui mérite doublement ma gratitude.

C'est ainsi, j'imagine, que la dissidence entre au top 150 de Popdex.

Ouais, c'est The Register qui est juste derrière. He he.
