I am opposed to the deposing and execution of Saddam, for geo-political reasons. He was Ahmadinejad's natural enemy, and now that tyrant remains free to do as he pleases, including arming himself with nukes and, no doubt, his wholly owned subsidiary, Hamas and their subjugated people. It was a terrible idea.

But if it had to be done, why were not the SEALs deployed to do it? Bag the trial. Shoot him once in the head. Declare victory and go home. Instead of turning Baghdad into the Al Qaeda Number One Recruitment Office of the Millenium.

I am for efficient assassination squads deployed by duly constituted elected officials.

I am not a pacifist. I was appalled by the lies which supported the invasion of Iraq. Even more appalled when the Republicans lost their own fucking war.

If I think about this too much I start to get very, very, very angry.

Here is the Saint John's reading list.

Any of you smarties out there, can you tell me why Middlemarch is in the middle of the 18th c. scientoes?
