Hmmm. I wonder about this. There's no doubt Saddam is/was a bad man. But i can't help but wonder if this is meant as more of a statement from Dubya that he's done what his dad couldn't do, and "got" him. Killing Saddam could well be a way for George to say "look what i've done for you...What are you going to do for me?...Thank you. I'll have that oil there..."

I would like to change my comment. Having looked at some news over the past day or so, i have just realised that the mid-term elections are about to kick off in the good old US of A, and Dubya looks like he's about to take a beating by the Democrats. What better way to swing the vote towards the Republicans, than by presenting a big bad man's head on a plate? Now that Osama's (apparently) gone, they need a new boogeyman to whip up some nationalistic fervour.
