Bill O' Hussein?
The ever-nauseating Bill O'Reilly has weighed in on the trouble in Iraq (but wait - I thought everything was FINE there!) by suggesting, twice, that in effect we need another Saddam Hussein in power there:
Saddam was able to control Iraq, as you know, and defeat insurgencies against him. The new Iraqi government can do the same, but it needs to get much tougher.
Back on the 19th he said much the same thing:
That's how I'd run that country -- just like Saddam ran it. Saddam didn't have explosions. He didn't have bombers, did he? Because if you got out of line, you're dead.
Of course, back in 2003, Bill considered Saddam "Hitler Lite":
It is absolutely eerie how closely the current Iraq situation parallels the rise of The Third Reich 70 years ago. I consider Saddam Hussein to be "Hitler lite" because he has the same virulent anti-Semitism, the same callous disregard for human life, and the identical lust for power that Adolf possessed. The only difference between the two villains is the size of the moustache.
(Bill O'Reilly, Townhall.com, March 8 2003)
So, um, okay - Saddam was just like Hitler and all, but he kept control of things so we should take the example and be just like him, although he was just like Hitler. Or something.
