Saddam is Dead

One of history's worst tyrants was executed this morning at 0600 Baghdad time. Whatever imperfections there may have been to his trial (although his only defenses were obfuscation and obstructionism), I don't think anyone can say that justice was not carried out.

More important is the question of where do the Iraqis go from here. That remains to be determined, with millions of lives in Iraq and the United States hanging (sorry, poor word choice) in the balance.
