Iraqi Justice


I will leave to the historians whether the verdict on Saddam and his two advisers - death by hanging - was just.

The two assistants were hanged today. Reportedly, Saddam's half brother was decapitated in the process. According to experts, that can happen during hanging if the length of the rope is too long.

It sounds like an instantaneous death to me. The Suniis are up in arms, violently complaining of the barbarism. Even some Shiites are upset, again.

Before we go wringing our hands, let's remember Nicholas Berg, Daniel Pearl, Paul Johnson, Gene Armstrong, Jack Hensley and other Americans who were beheaded by middle east terrorists. On purpose, in a manner meant to be very slow and very painful.
