BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Actor Willis' $1m Saddam bounty

BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Actor Willis' $1m Saddam bounty: "Actor Bruce Willis has performed before US soldiers in Telafar, northern Iraq, and offered $1m (�603,000) to the man who captures Saddam Hussein."

Good for him. Pretty typical actor-style quotes though.

""But being over here just a couple of days, seeing how well our troops and the allied troops are being received here, (I) think the Iraqi people are happy we're here," the Hollywood star said.

"Children are being taken care of, starting being inoculated, starting being looked after. Wherever these guys go they get thumbs up. They no longer have to contend with the terrorist leader," Willis said. "

and then it continues.

"But the star later admitted he had not met many Iraqis because he had been travelling the country by helicopter."

I'm not saying that many great things aren't happening, I know they are. But how many soccer fields being build make up for your cousin being blown away? I don't think there's a number that high.

Maybe the 6-month exit/new government strategy/goal is good thing. Err, if it works.
