Saddam Hussein's latest rhetorical extravaganza isn't up to his usual standards:
All empires and bearers of the coffin of evil, whenever they mobilized their evil against the Arab nation, or against the Muslim world, they were themselves buried in their own coffin, with their sick dreams and their arrogance and greed.
(From The Washington Post )
The metaphor of the coffin just doesn't work for me. I think something must have been lost in the translation.
