some insane quotes from Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf, Iraqi Minister of Information...
"Who are in control, they are not in control of anything - they don't even control themselves!"
"We are not afraid of the Americans. Allah has condemned them. They are stupid. They are stupid" (dramatic pause) "and they are condemned."
"I can say, and I am responsible for what I am saying, that they have
started to commit suicide under the walls of Baghdad. We
will encourage them to commit more suicides quickly."
We have destroyed 2 tanks, fighter planes, 2 helicopters and their shovels - We have driven them back."
"We will welcome them with bullets and shoes."
"We will kill them all........most of them."
"they are nowhere near the airport ..they are lost in the desert...they can not read a compass...they are retarded."
"We will slaughter them, Bush Jr. and his international gang of bastards!"
"It has been rumored that we have fired scud missiles into Kuwait. I am here now to tell you, we do not have any scud missiles and I don't know why they were fired into Kuwait."
"We have destroyed 50 tanks today. That 5-ohhh tanks" [while holding up his fingers]
(this one i thought was especially hilarious)
"When we were making the law, when we were writing the literature and the mathematics the grandfathers of Blair and little Bush were scratching around in caves"
"Even those who live on another planet, if there are such people, would have condemned this action before it started"
