Like many of you, I am elated that the numero uno Iraqi jerk has been captured, identified and booked. I fear that because of diplomatic failures and corporate intervention that "the war has only just begun". Saddam was empowered and emboldened during the Reagan administration. He was further emboldened when GWB1 refused to take him out when we had the chance. I suspect these facts will be completely ignored in this aftermath. Nonetheless, we have a lot to look forward to and a lot to be both thankful and ashamed of. The Germans and the French have expressed approval this day for the capture of one of the world's most notorious of all tyrants. But their refusal to accept calls to war by the US has been ridiculed for months. But, I suspect their reasons for their refusals to embrace the kind of war that the US promoted will become more clear in the very near future. Maybe now we will all learn the truth about the origins of his chemical, biological and nuclear weaponry, wouldn't you wish for that? Maybe now we will learn about the American corporate dollars that poured into Iraq during the '80's, '90's and even into the present millenium, wouldn't you all wish for that as well? This is indeed a great day for America and our people! It also represents the greatest opportunity that we might ever see for the political/corporate truths to be presented for all the world to see. The trial of Saddam Hussein will be enlightening, to say the least, if we see it. My elation is only dampened by my realization that the political vacuum left in Iraq will be filled with Jihadists or other fundamentalists that might prove to be more a danger than Saddam ever represented on his own.
