In Monty Python and the Holy Grail, King Arthur finds his path blocked by the Black Knight, a belligerent fellow who happens to be no good at fighting. The Knight loses an arm , then another, then both legs to Arthur's superior swordsmanship. He is left in pieces on the ground, screaming to the departing King, "You yellow bastard, come back here and take what's coming to you!" That was the image of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, bloodied but unbowed and unenlightened after his humiliation in the 1991 Gulf War, when a U.N. mission led by the U.S. drove his troops out of Kuwait and kindled a holocaust of as many as a 100,000 Iraqis. It is Saddam Hussein's will to fight and his resistance to UN inspections that he should be removed from power.
One of the reasons he needs to be removed from power is because actions in the gulf war.
