Saddam Doesn't Like The Prison Food.....

This article really hit a button for me. Saddam voiced his "frustrations" during a recess at his trial saying that he didn't like the food that we were feeding him, he didn't like being watched 24/7, and he didn't want his family to know how badly he was living. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? My understanding was that he is on trial for terrorism, and he's complaining about the food? I'm sure alot of the families of the victims of 9/11 would have thrown his ass in a disgusting dungeon and let him feed on the rat population if they had their say. Also, he's embarrassed of his living conditions in prison, didn't we just pick him up from his residency in a hole!?! This completely outraged me to read, he obviously has no remorse and to me should have undoubtedly gotten the death penalty.

I completely agree with you! Saddam is truly a mad man, and I could care less if we just let him rot in jail, hopefully he'll do so sooner, rather than later, so our tax dollars don't have to keep funding such a low life loser!

I think he should be lucky that we are even feeding him. For all I care he could starve. He deserves the torture. I don't think he cared when his people didn't eat at all so why should we care about him.

I can't believe that he is even complaining after what he did to the people of Iraq for all those years. He is lucky that the soldiers that found him in that hole did not string him up right there or better yet let the people of the streets have their way with him. I am always shocked to hear people complain of their horrible situation after what they did to the lives of innocent people.

I guess you might say Saddam's got himself a little prisoner's dilema (that's a pun for those who are about to say that him not liking the food is not a prisoner's dilema, in terms of economics that is). I think at this point it can be agreed that Saddam really is absolutely insane. He is convinced of his innocence and I don't think he realizes at all that what he has done is wrong.

.....what's a prisoner's dilemna?

If he wants to complain let him. As I recall he is in prison. That means that freedoms are taken away. Luxuries of good food, a nice bed, and choices of what to watch on TV are gone. So I say let him complain all he wants as long as we don’t give in to any of his crying.

For those of us who are in ManEc it means that each individual player in a game (or market you might say) is trying to maximize their own advantage without the concern or well being of the other players. For example, if two men get caught for a crime and are given an opportunity to incriminate the other man involved in order to save themselves jail time they will do what is best for them and not for the other person. In Saddam's case he might make a deal to get better food by implicating the President of France into his wrong doings. The President of France might make a deal to show evidence that it Saddam was in fact guilty in order to avoid going to jail himself. (NOTE: This is just and example. The President of France has nothing to do with what Saddam has done. It was just fun to use him because...well..the French just aren't my favorite people right now.)

-1 on Bree's post for spelling errors (although you get kudos for finding a reasonable subject with which to sneak "ass" into the blog).

-1 on Maddy's comment for spelling errors.

-1 on Elijah's comment - thanks for chipping in, but I can't really give credit for that.

It's nice when someone can turn a post that isn't about ManEc into a thread with some useful stuff.
