Libya to erect statue of Saddam


Libya says it will erect a statue of Saddam Hussein alongside that of a Libyian national hero hanged in 1931.

On the eve of Saddam's hanging, the Libyan leader, Col Muammar Gadafy, said the former Iraq leader was a prisoner of war who must be tried by Iraq's invaders, the United States and Britain.

According to the Libyian government "The revolutionary committees have decided to erect a statue of Saddam Hussein standing beside Omar Mukhtar on the gallows."
Mukhtar led the Libyan resistance against Italian occupation.

Libya declared three days of mourning after Saddam's death and cancelled public celebrations around the Eid religious holiday and across the country flags on government buildings flew at half-mast.

That's crazy. I don't think any other words will sum it up.
