    The Saddam Hussein hanging snuff videos are no accident. The videos of the hanging of Saddam Hussein, are unique in the history of propaganda, and in their psychological harm to the mass of humanity. Our civilisation has been quite sharply moved along toward the precipice of darkness. Quotes from MWC News article, "BBC Showing Saddam Snuff Video - The Darkest Propaganda Game of All": http://mwcnews.net/content/view/11580/26/ The real purpose of the Saddam Hussein snuff videos - is to roll back the Enlightenment in one stroke, to inure all of us to torment and death and brutality, to tell us that we are still living in the days of the rope, and of painful death by government order. . . . the Saddam Hussein snuff films have laid the psychological groundwork for coming wars, for more torture and terror, for a coming dark age, for a 21st century that may bring even more horror than the 20th.
