David Byrne Blasts Bush + Cheney

Pop legend DAVID BYRNE has accused US President GEORGE W BUSH and Vice President DICK CHENEY of leading America in the same way as the late SADDAM HUSSEIN led Iraq. The former TALKING HEADS frontman is still shocked at the US-led invasion of Iraq and remains a vocal critic of the war. He says, "It's like we're in shock. At least I am. The majority of Americans don't want to commit more troops, Congress doesn't want to commit more troops, but George and DICk do and by God they're gonna have it. "And I thought, 'Holy f**k! Can they just do this?' I thought only people like Saddam Hussein could do those kind of things." Hussein was hanged last month (30DEC07) after being convicted of crimes against the Iraqi people.
