I don't think Saddam's execution did anything to promote peace in Iraq. And the timing of the execution probably couldn't have been much worse with the Islamic holiday period and all. Sounds like Shiite's interpreted Saddam's execution as a wonderful thing while the Sunni's see it as a slap in their face and another reminder that Sunni's no longer exercise complete control in Iraqi affairs.

Care to explain your reasoning for making this statement or are you just mindlessly Bush-bashing again? I understand you really don't like George W. but I really don't see how the execution of Saddam Hussein increases Bush's ability to "control" Iraq, as if he has much control to begin with. If anything Saddam's execution will only destabilize Iraq further which I'm pretty sure Bush doesn't want.
