It's Almost Hanging Day

Well folks, it's almost hanging day for our good friend Saddam Hussein.

Iraq denied Hussein's appeal and ruled that he must be hanged some time within the next 30 days.

Not that I don't think the rotten bastard should die but I'm curious about the ramifications of his execution. More than likely, given the Islamic mentality, it will spark new waves of violence in every faction. This also will also lead to more American deaths.

The Jihadists will make a martyr out of Hussein even though he was a secular Muslim. None of this should come as any surprise though if you've been paying any attention at all to what's going on in the so-called "War On Terror."

Who are we conducting this war on? Most of the world's terrorists are Muslims but it's not a war on Muslims? Really it's more like a war on national sovereignty since many of our rights are being abrogated in the name of this war.
