I was taken to task (several times) last month over my dimissive post on the death of Strom Thurmond.
However, I don't think many people will take issue with my unforgiving, uncaring, see-you-in-hell thoughts as I read that Idi Amin has lapsed into a coma.
Interesting life he lived. Six wives, 43 children, 400,000 murders on his hand, not to mention the aid he gave to Palestinian terrorists who hijacked an Air France plane in 1976.
Note of interest: Yasser Arafat was the best man at Amin's fifth wedding.
Sordid side note: Other dictators might find their enemies to be targets, threats, or terror: Amin found them tasty: "After his coup of his predecessor, Apolo Milton Obote, Amin rounded up the military leaders that did not support his coup, murdered them, decapitated them and sat their disembodied heads around the presidential dining table, scolding them for not supporting him, and taking bites of their flesh."
The coma clock ticks.
