BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) _ Italian politician and porn star Illona Staller, better known as La Cicciolina, has offered to have sex with Saddam Hussein if he agrees to free foreigners he is holding in Iraq.

″I am willing to go to bed with Hussein if in exchange he sets free the hostages, because this way it would be making love, not war,″ Ms. Staller said Tuesday night. ″I am willing to let him have his way with me if in exchange he frees the hostages.″

Ms. Staller, 35, who represents the Radical Party in the Italian parliament, arrived in this South American capital Monday for a series of TV and nightclub appearances.


During an appearance on Channel 9, Ms. Staller attributed the Middle East conflict to ″the selfishness of the great powers and the booty they all want to split after the conflict.″

″This is taking place because of oil, and that’s why I support the development of solar energy,″ she said. ″The sun can’t be divided between the United States and the East. The sun shines on everyone equally.″
