Saddam hangingAnd if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
– Exodus 21:23

A day in the life of the average Iraqi has been reduced to identifying corpses, avoiding car bombs and attempting to keep track of which family members have been detained, which ones have been exiled and which ones have been abducted.

Saddam Hussein didn’t have nearly enough body parts to compensate for the damage he did. Nor does George Bush.

It’s a pity, really, that George and Saddam will not have the opportunity to share what should be their just desserts: sharing a jail cell for the rest of their natural lives, with perhaps an opportunity for community service should either demonstrate he could be safely let out on the streets or display an aptitude for that kind of thing.

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.
– Mahatma Gandhi
