By the way, Saddam Husayn established a very close relationship with Jalal Talbani (shown above in a tender moment) very early on in his regime. Talbani has had a very wide reputation for opportunism and even for serving as a tool of Saddam to be used against the Barzani camp over the years. But you know that is funny? More funny than Walid Jumblat's sectarian group being in the Socialist International, is the fact that Talbani's feudal group also serves in the Socialist International. Poor Karl Marx. Can you imagine the expressions on Karl Marx's face when shown the unsavory characters who are now the Socialist International?
