Naming a street after former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in a city in Jordan has sparked an outrage in Baghdad and drawn sharp criticism from officials in Kuwait.
A volley of condemnations followed a day after Jordanian authorities named a street "Saddam" in the Western city of al-Karak.
Iraqi lawmakers and politicians condemned the move as "inciting sedition" against the Iraqi nation. The Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq also censured the naming and called for a restraint of Iraq's ties with Jordan.
An official for Kuwait's Foreign Ministry also asked Jordanian officials to explain the naming of a street after the Baathist dictator.'
I would laugh if Jordan had not exported so many "mujahideen" to kill Americans and mass murder Iraqis for overthrowing Saddam, their hero, and establishing a democracy.
