On the hanging of Hussein, and the death of countless of  Iraqis citizens and 3,000 American soldiers

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.
