Tonight on Frontline: "The Survival of Saddam"

U.S./Canadian members please note:  Tonight's Frontline is "The Survival of
Saddam" (PBS, check local listings but typically 10PM Eastern/Pacific) .
Sanctions are mentioned in the promotional material (below), so perhaps -
just perhaps - they'll be discussed during the program, as may the extent of
U.S. support for Saddam during the Iran-Iraq war.

The Cockburn's copyright lawyers are advised to watch as well ...
No one expected Saddam Hussein to survive his humiliating defeat in the Gulf
War. But nine years later, he still rules Iraq and continues to defy
America. FRONTLINE investigates Saddam's ruthless rise to power and how he
has maintained his grip despite pressure from economic sanctions, no-fly
zones, UN weapons inspectors, and military attacks from the Iraqi
FRONTLINE's web site deepens this report, presenting: 
*       Extended interviews from the program 
*       A chronology of Iraqi-U.S. relations over three decades and a
timeline of key events in Saddam Hussein's life and leadership 
*       A selection of readings and special reports 
*       Iraqi videos about Hussein (with music) 
*       A photo album of rare pictures of Saddam
