Saddam Hussein's Luxury Yacht For Sale

 

The Iraqi government is getting ready to sell a luxury yacht belonging to their former dictator Saddam Hussein. It is hoped that although it is not quite as luxurious as newer yachts, it should still fetch over $35m.

The 270ft boat has swimming pools, an operating theater, a helipad, and a James Bond villain style escape tunnel leading to a submarine. Colors are decor could be described as gaudy and ostentatious.

The ship was built in 1981 in Denmark, but Saddam Hussein is said never to have stayed on it for fear of political instability back home if he left the country.

  I hope that money...  
 
is given to the people for hospitals and help with the re-building of their homes.

  ...or maybe  
 
Maybe the money will be given to Americans who have lost their homes, thanks to the Bush war in Iraq and resulting destruction of our economy.

To be fair, the Iraqis had little choice in the matter. 50%~ of Americans voted for Bush - twice even, willful instruments of their own financial demise. Any money gained from the yacht sale should almost certainly go to help fund social programs or housing projects for the Iraqi people.

  It  
 
would have been better if he goes away with that yacht for ever I think. It maybe the country would have been attracted without him.

  I don't care if they buy lottery tickets  
 
with the money so long as we get our people away from them.
