as with all major events, the Gulf War II or Operation Iraqi Freedom, as the US and its coalition partners have dubbed it, is marking its own place in the annals of world history.
while i agree with the motives for the war, I don't completely agree with the way in which the coalition has gone about conducting the affair.
the world is a much more dangerous place because of their gung-ho attitude.

nevertheless, on the lighter side, the war has thrown up its own share of celebrities.
from the media crews embedded with the coalition forces to the generals at CENTCOM to the very convinced now-former Iraqi information minister, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf.
M.S.S as he is referred to by some, made a name for himself with his convincing performance of a man who believed every word he said (or perhaps was forced to say).
his popularity has given rise to numerous fan sites across the internet.
of note is welovetheiraqiinformationminister.com

al-Sahaf will definitely be more than a mere footnote in history.
it may also be a great story for this us to tell our future generations...

as al-Sahaf would probably say, "there are no fan sites anywhere on the internet, we will crush the liars and their so-called fan sites"
