A Powerful Reminder Of What Happens To Really Awful Presidents
Saddam Hussein was sentenced to death in Baghdad today. But he won't hang anytime soon, because first he has to be tried for many other crimes, and then he immediately goes to an appeals court, and all of this presumes that the current Iraqi "government" still exists by then, or that Baghdad even exists by then.
Nobody is talking about what's really going to happen: The Bush Administration is going to abandon Iraq (by choice or by force), give the Sunnis a third of the country, and cut a deal to let Saddam be president of at least that part of post-invasion Iraq.
