Didn't believe the earlier report that they might have bought it. Now it's confirmed.

<b>General: Saddam's Two Sons Killed in Raid</b>

By SARMAD JALAL, Associated Press Writer

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Saddam Hussein (news - web sites)'s sons Odai and Qusai were killed in a six-hour firefight Tuesday when U.S. forces surrounded and then stormed a palatial villa in the northern Iraqi town of Mosul, a senior American general said.

"We are certain that Odai and Qusai were killed today," said Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez at a news conference in Baghdad.

"They died in a fierce gunbattle," Sanchez added.

He told reporters that soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division were working on a tip from an Iraqi informant that the sons were present in the house.

When troops approached the building, gunmen inside opened fire with small arms. The "suspects barricaded themselves in the house" and "resisted fiercely," he said.

Sanchez promised a detailed briefing on the operation Wednesday.

"The bodies were in such a condition where you could identify them," he said. The identities of the other two dead were not known, he said.

Sanchez was asked about heavy gunfire that erupted across Baghdad about 10 p.m., believed to have been in celebration of reports that Saddam's sons had been killed in Mosul.

The general said the gunfire may have been in celebration over the son's death or hostile fire aimed at U.S. occupation forces. "It's very appropriate that they would celebrating about now," he said.

In Washington, L. Paul Bremer, Iraq (news - web sites)'s top civilian administrator, said he did not want to comment on how the deaths of Saddam's sons would affect security in Iraq.

However, Bremer said: "It certainly is good news for the Iraqi people."
Too bad they weren't taken alive, though. Could've been "persuaded" to reveal daddy's whereabouts.

They were living in a palatial villa and we just now found them!?
No wonder the troops have not found any WOMD.

Im glad they got these guys but it shows that were not in control of Iraq at this point.

I'm glad our soldiers were able to do this. They should be proud. The U.S. military can beat anyone else's military and maybe even everyone else's at once. Still, it has not done a good job at rebuilding countries. That is the key in this situation.

Don't get me wrong, I'm extremely happy with the news, but it seems oddly suspicious that the History Channel aired a profile of Saddam's sons last night (probably a rerun). I wonder how far in advance that program was scheduled.

Interesting sidenote

Uday's name is pronounced "YOU die." But once his name started being spoken in the US media, they changed it to "OO day." I guess it wasn't politically correct to talk about killing a guy named "you die."

Reminds me of when they changed the name of Uranus from "Yer anus" to "Urin us."

Actually ... lol ... if you were to pronounce the name in arabic, from the traditional sanscreet ... it would NOT be "you die" ... indeed it is: "oo dai"

LOL ...

When will people realize that there are more languages than solely english?

"Sanscreet"?? Is that like Sanscrit?

Please forgive my white-boy ignorance. I based my assumption on an article I read in Pravda (English version).

I gotta wonder. Is the guy who's getting the reward going into some equivalent of the witness protection program? He's done the US of A a great service, but he's also made a lot of enemies. I hope he gets a chance to enjoy some of his reward. We (the USA) need to treat him well so that it's an example for others...

i think it would have been infinitely better to have taken them alive and been able to interogate them and whatnot and then sent them off to trial...
not only would that have been better information wise but i have already heard reports that some countries are saying by killing them the US is stooping down to their level...

i think capturing them alive would have been better... but not worth the life of a single soldier...

great to celebrate now but you'll really kick yourself in the ass later when you realize they had info you can't get anywhere else other than from saddam.. and saddam can't be found because you killed 'em

There's no way in hell they would have come peacefully. And even then, Saddam was one of the most paranoid leaders ever, so I doubt he told even his kids where he's hiding.

I'm glad we got them, but its too bad we didnt get them alive. I guess its one of those "We won't be taken alive!" type of scenarios but I'd have loved to see those assholes put on trial.

Now if only we could find their dad.

Wouldn't be France you're talking about, would it? Fuck them! They weren't there. They never have been.

We didn't walk in there and execute these bastards. It was a four hour fire fight. I wouldn't be surprised if we find out the mutant spawn took their own lives.
