Saddam - What if?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What if,

    When Iraq returns to self Government and Saddam is returned to Iraq for 'judgement', he is found not guilty.

    In the following free elections he then becomes leader of Iraq once more?

    After all, wouldn't Iraq be a free democracy with the freedom of choice?

    Couldn't happen...............or could it?
  2. Given the high speed at which events are currently unfolding, he'll have copped it from old age before that could happen.
  3. he is probably the only bloke who can control the place, he's done it before and Bush and his lapdog Blair have proved that they sure as shite cant do it.
  4. Two thirds of the unholy trinity that was Saddam are dead.
    Saddam relied heavily upon his two sons to maintain his hold over Iraq.
    After their deaths and all that has happened is he even the same man anymore..

    Do you really think that people who have been so oppressed in the past, whose military have been poorly paid and badly equipped, where the opinion of the people counst for nothing, with a government ruled by a tyrannical dictator who only looks after his mates, would be taken in by the spin and propaganda and vote him in again?

    Or will we vote Conservative this time around?
  6. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: funny but true :lol: :lol: :lol:
  7. Bring in Bin Laden and that Cleric bloke whos successfully giving the spams such a kicking to take their places and Iraq will become a major player on the world stage.

    seriously though, its a bag of worms that has been so badly (if at all) planned by messers Bush and bLair from the word go. Is there a way out? probably not, without being seen as giving up.
  8. Now suppose we had made an ally of Saddam in the first place , instead of demonising him?

    A kind of "Friendly Invasion" . We supply know how, equipment and trainig, take him off embargo etc , and still have Iraq as a major base of operations in the Middle East?

    Just a scenario

    Ideal centre for the processing of asylum applications, too.
