Saddam's Yacht Is Up For Sale


According to the BBC, some lucky billionaire will have the chance to own Saddam's yacht.

"The 82m (270ft) Ocean Breeze is equipped with swimming pools, an operating theatre, a helipad and an escape tunnel leading to a submarine."

It all sounds very James Bond, doesn't it? Especially the escape tunnel part.
