It's being reported, and I'm pretty certain that by the time you all read this you will know that Saddam Hussein has been hanged.
Of course, I'm not going to shed any tears over this. I think he deserved a send-off akin to that of Mussolini, but I do hope we show the world that we are, if nothing else, a nation that understands and respects the dead --in spite of the fact that sometimes the dead do not deserve our respect.
In the coming days, much better writers and philosophers than I will probably bring forth the inevitable question that, in light of the death toll of American soldiers surpassing those of Sept. 11th, was it, in fact, worth it?
I suppose that is for people out there to debate for what will most likely be a very long time. But, I do hope that this will be the first step in bringing our troops home.
