It will happen any minute now. The coverage has been decidedly mixed, perhaps even surprisingly so. I have avoided a lot of it for the escapism of college football. I guess that makes me the typical American slob.
In the end, the violence in Iraq was bound to get worse, no matter what happened to Saddam. I have very low expectations for any positive outcome there. Yes, some positives have happened, but they are going to be drowned in the blood of the innocents now being massacred daily.
Saddam’s hanging will be used to each side’s purpose with disregard to what may or may not have been the truth.
