The picture above was taken in one of Saddam's former
palaces. Well, the palace isn't former, he is, but you get the
idea. The marble mural behind me depicts the glorious defeat
of the Christian Crusaders at the hands of Saladin. I don't
suppose the Crusaders thought it was all that glorious but in
this part of the world they look at it a bit differently.
