Ays of Iraq at a Glance posted this page from a children’s textbook just before the news came through that “Father Saddam” had been captured hiding in a hole.
Update: The capture of Saddam has jolted Salam Pax, now in London, off his high horse.
I want a fully functioning Saddam who will sit on a chair in front of a TV camera for 10 hours everyday and tells us what exactly happened the last 30 years. I do not care about the fair trial thing Amnesty Int. is worried about and I don’r really care much about the fact that the Iraqi judges might not be fullt qualified, we all know he should rot in hell. but what I do care about is that he gets a public trial because I want to hear all the untold stories.
Zeyad’s reaction was interesting too: Humiliation. The man who Iraqis had worshipped and feared for so many years was revealed to be a pathetic old man.
