U.S. and Iraqi officials believe that today -- Saddam's 66th birthday -- might be one of the last hurdles they face in convincing Iraqis that the Iraqi president will not return to power. If it passes without any attack or statement from Saddam's loyalists, many Iraqis will be convinced that Saddam has gone forever. April 28 has long been Iraq's most important public holiday, usually marked by a huge military show of force.

Word spread through Baghdad in recent days that Saddam or his loyalists planned a dramatic action to mark the day. ``There are a lot of rumors about Saddam's birthday. We are on alert for Monday,'' says Hussein Ali Aboud, 34, a U.S.-trained Iraqi militia fighter.

Of course, it's late afternoon/early evening in Iraq now, so the day ain't over YET...

I've never cared much about British politics since they don't affect me. But this hits too close to home. Leftist scumbags across the Ocean are assaulting the company that supplies me with my Cadbury cream eggs. I need my Cadbury cream eggs!
