Sic semper tyrannis

Before I say this, allow me to repeat for the hundredth time that I loathe and despise this war. It's a bad idea, a morally reprehensible action, and it's being directed by the most cynical people imaginable for the worst possible reasons. It's going to have horrible long-term consequences and will cost goodness knows how many lives. It's the biggest and most important of dozens of reasons why Bush and his people need to be removed from power with a quickness.

That said, I can't help but feeling good when I see the statues and posters of Saddam Hussein coming down. He's an awful tyrant and a devotee in politics and style of Stalin, one of the most evil people ever, and it's got to feel pretty good seeing that fucker's monuments topple if you're an Iraqi.

Of course, we pretty much put him there in the first place, and we'll certainly put in someone horrible after we've killed the requisite number of towelheads. The Iraqis are about to learn real hard how "free" we intend to make them.

But still...I don't hate seeing that. I surely don't hate seeing people dance on a broken statue of motherfucking Saddam Hussein.

I just hope we get a chance to burn a portrait of George W. Bush as a companion piece pretty soon.
