The Cia is now very sure Sadam survived the suprise initial bomb attack meant to kill him.

What happens if they don't find him? It will be as bad as Bin Laden still running around out there.

Heh, I was about to mention Bin Laden. ;)

If Saddam survived, which I am sure he did, the war will go on like the president intended. It could take years to find Saddam, it could take weeks, it could take days, it could take hours. Maybe we will never find him at all. But what I feel is that as long as he is out of the capital, then Bush, or whoever is in charge of this, will replace the old regime with a new one with special guards and whatnot.

I'm really not surprised that he isn't dead. I bet he has caves/tunnels in that city that are hudreds of feet below the surface. So I'm sure he's running through the catacombs. We will find him...it's just a question of when.

I say he is wounded or dead.

They have shown videotapes of him after the bombing to ensure everyone that he is still alive. Now... if he really wanted people to believe he survived (which makes sense), would he not mention the attempted murder!? That way his people would be sure it's not just a recording made long before the war began.

If Saddam falls, his army will probably surrender within days. Saddam *needs* to prove he is still alive.
