Saddam's Dog executed


from Our source, Inside the mind of a Geordie Monkey comes this retraction. Obviously, we retract the story as well.

Saddam Dog Faked

I posted a story about Saddam Dog being Executed last week,

I have now found that the story is FAKE.......the picture has been faked 

The photo is found on DOGS DESERVE BETTER website which is a nonprofit organization dedicated to freeing the chained dog, and bringing our ‘best friend’ into the home and family.

warning distressing pictures

They killed his dog.

His DOG?


from Inside the Mind of a Geordie Monkey

Saddam's Dog executed

Shortly after the execution of the dictator Saddam Hussein, his dog Blondi followed the same fate to the gallows. Contrary to Saddam, Blondi’s execution was broadcast live in full length. Some minor complications arose, which dragged out the death struggle to unbearable lengths. Animal activist group PETA has filed a formal complaint to the Iraqi Foreign Ministry.

warning the link is rather unpleasant. Despite extensive monitoring of iraqi media by the likes of the bbc, they seem to have ignored it.

What about his pickup truck? Good God, don't tell me they sent his truck to the crusher, too! Allow the man at least a shred of post-mortem disgnity, willya?!

Seriously, that's bad. The dog did nothing to deserve this, I'm sure. But dogs are feared and reviled in Arab Muslim culture, as I'm sure you know (that's why we used them on prisoners at Abu Ghraib), and I'm sure his having a dog was highlighted this way to make a point to those who would try to turn the man into some sort of Sunni martyr.

Hi, I tried to post earlier, before all the red stuff, but after Kev had posted...

I'd not thought DBlatt was up again, and was Soooooooooo happy to see it back, then ran smack into the Dog horrible thing. I cried, which I never do. V. happy if that's a hoax.

Saddam Hussein was a bad man, but the entirety of the endplay of his life was just wrong. Wrong.
