Will this make Saddam knuckle under at last?

According to Yahoo! News, former Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, has been forced repeatedly to watch South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut:
The deposed leader on trial in Iraq was featured in the movie spin-off as the lover of the devil. South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut featured Hussein and Satan attempting to take over the world together.

Speaking at the Edinburgh International Television Festival, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone said US Marines guarding the former dictator during his trial for genocide were making him watch the movie "repeatedly".

"I have it on pretty good information from the Marines on detail in Iraq that they showed him the movie last year. That's really adding insult to injury. I bet that made him really happy," Stone said.

I checked one of the reviews by IMDB members. I'm sure Saddam Hussein would agree with the reviewer that we live in a
suffociatingly focus-group-tested, PC-policed, cynically sentimental, violence-ridden, love-starved modern world.

...don't you? Saddam Hussein must be feeling pretty love-starved along about now.
