A sad, and probably accurate, forecast about Iraq ...

... in the wake of the execution of Saddam Hussein and the way, and by whom, it was carried out. Zeyad at Healing Iraq has a link to a mobile telephone video recording of Saddam being hanged and a translation of what the exchanges were just prior to the trap-door being opened; the comments are less inflammatory (but still somewhat inflammatory) than some have been reporting, it would seem. Zeyad also has some comments about what he thinks (fears) might be in store for Iraq now; unfortunately the 'permalink' for this post is defective, but it is entitled "Saddam Hangs (Updated)" and was posted on 30th December 2006 at 1.25pm.
