Saddam captured!

My reaction when I read about Saddam Hussein being captured was to say “about bloody time”.

I’m happy as can be that they actually captured the guy alive. A dead body, although it might make folks feel good, doesn’t have the same value as seeing the bastard squirm while they put him through due process of the law. And killing him might make him a martyr: putting him on trial, bring out all the people he made suffer…that might actually get some (not all) of his supporters to rethink their cause.

One thing I hope is that they have really good genetic samples from the “real” Saddam so they can be absolutely certain that this isn’t another one of his doubles…
