Hey Saddam... Lookin' good! :p

I have my doubts that this will change the current situation in Iraq significantly,... but perhaps that's a topic better suited for the Senate Chambers forum.

That's great... that's great...

All they need now is to find Ossama and get the party started :)

No one posts in the Senate anymore...

I believe there will be even more violence then before. The loyalists will want revenge...

But he's finally captured. That's one hell of a good thing.

It's not the loyalists I'm worried about. They will eventually disband and fade away.

It's all the extremists who want to turn Iraq into a Taliban or Iranian-style theocracy who have been holding back from going after American forces for fear that driving Coalition troops out too soon might allow Saddam to regain power. Now they no longer need to worry about that.
