Saddam gone but not forgotten

Tired of watching the same old stuff on television? For something exciting, new and totally different tune in to Tyrant TV, dedicated to preserving the memory of noble Arab Saddam Hussein through rebroadcast of his speeches and poetry recitations. The adverts alone make it worth a look: nowhere else will you see assault rifles, bomb components and GPS jammers promoted using catchy jingles -- the little girl singing about "patriotic" extremists "liberating" Iraq while demonstrating the many of virtues of the AK-47 is at once heart-warming and informative. They missed an opportunity in not running rope ads, however.

The channel is broadcast on a satellite station that alternately calls itself "al-Arabi" ("An Arab") and "al-Lafeta" ("The banner"). It began broadcasting across the Arab world on Friday, the first day of Eid al-Adha, an important holiday of the Islamic calendar, and the anniversary of Saddam's execution by hanging three years ago.(AP Photo/ al-Lafeta)
