In a video monitored and sent to subscribers by MEMRI, a panel on "Democracy TV," which is based in Iraq and Britain, discusses the legacy of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, who was deposed and executed after a US-led invasion of the country.

The show is titled "The Democracy Club" but the debate seems more like a scene from "The Fight Club," and gives outsiders a peek into the visceral nature of the hatred between Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims in Iraq.
