The Mussolini Song
We used to sing this song in school about Mussolini.
It's sung to the tune of "Whistle while you work"
Whistle while you work,
Hitler is a jerk,
Mussolini bit his weenie,
Now it doesn't work.

Please notice that this is a piece of US propaganda. Mussolini was captured and killed by the Italian Liberation Movement (the Resistance).

Was "Il Duce" not "El Duce"
Sorry but the article is not the Spanish "el" but the Italian "il" so was "il duce" not el duce, because unfortunately was Italian.
I still want to thanks, after 60 years, the US troops for the liberation of Italy.

Comparison with Saddams' execution (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7532034279766935521) is interesting. Different method (firing squad vs hanging) but result was the same: death at the hands of locals. The trial of Saddam certainly took much longer, and his body was afforded some vestige of respect.
Clearly a lot of emotion, as well asa politics, involved
