On the hanging of Hussein, and the death of countless of Iraqis citizens and 3,000 American soldiers
January 23, 2007
When Brian and I went to see Bush at the Cultural Center, about
half way through he turned to me and said the fanaticism reminded
him of a World War II film he’d just seen on Nazi war rallies.
Even then, neither one of us could have imagined what a quagmire
of death and destruction the war would turn out to be.
Don’t think, though, we are ignorant of the death inflected on his
own people by Hussein; but to replace one killing machine with
another -- by means of deception and lies -- deserves the same fate.
