Pipest Dream Ever

The National Review has an editorial up on the execution of Saddam Hussein. The piece ends with this ridiculous statement. From NRO:

Saddam’s trial and execution could yet be the building block of a future with hope in it for an Iraqi society and state at last free from his tyranny.

Um, Saddam's been out of circulation for over three years. The Iraqis have been out from under the thumb of his tyranny for over three years. What has happened since then? It has gotten worse every year. Why would this act change anything?

NRO is clueless... especially in light of the video, showing that the execution of Hussein was about as solemn and organized as a mob lynching... with chants from Al Sadr's loyalists... showing who is really pulling the string here isn't the "people of Iraq" but just another armed dictator-wanna-be spurring vengence and death (but with US permission in this casae)...
