A videotaped hanging does not bring justice to Saddam's victims, living or dead.

Someone has to say it: The hanging of Saddam Hussein was an act of barbarism that mocks all of Bush's posturing on Iraq.

Although the United States itches to do away with Hugo Chávez, his socialist
policies are alleviating poverty and earning the people's trust. To
Bush's chagrin, the Venezuelan leader is here to stay.

Bush insisted that Saddam Hussein's trial be held in Iraq so that an international tribunal would never expose America's history of support for the tyrant.

cannot be expected to see the morally, legally and politically questionable death sentence given to Saddam Hussein a milestone in the Bush Administration's illegal war in
Iraq. As the milestones pile up, so do the bodies.
