I didn’t think this day would come. I thought we would pay for a soldier’s restraint (in not rolling a grenade or two into his hole) forever. I’m pleased I was wrong.
Of all I’ve read on the execution of the Butcher of Baghdad, I like this Mario Loyola piece the best. I believe it carries the correct message to the world–both to those who continue to doubt that removing Saddam Hussein from power was the correct decision, and to those who would emulate him.
I don’t believe in a fire and brimstone hell. Sometimes I enjoy the thought that maybe I’m wrong. I’m having one of those times right now.
