"If you were not protected by God, you would be afraid of a gecko"
-Saddam Hussein answering a question at his War Crimes Trial.

This quotation fascinates me.

Is this some sort of proclamation in the Confucian mold?

Is Saddam suggesting Godliness as a cure for Herpetophobia?

Is he somehow subconsciously revealing a childhood gecko-based incident as an excuse for his murderous regime?

The possibilities are endless.
