Thanks for posting this video, great stuff.

What was stopping Saddam from taking Ali hostage ?

Shows Ali's courage and compassion.

No doubt Senor Pepe or whatever his name is would attempt to spin it out of context if he were still allowed to post.

If the Ali story was written about a 2000 years ago nobody would believe it thats how remarkable his story is.

It wasn't as if Saddam had a good reputation to uphold. Unquestionably a courageous act by Ali.
