Iraq’s highest court has rejected Saddam’s appeals and ruled that Saddam must be hanged within 30 days. Justice is a little swifter over there.
We already know how the media will spin the story: increased sectarian strife, bad for Iraq, tougher for L.A. Times columnists to argue for his return to power, etc.
For the rational world, however, this must be seen as a major step forward in the struggle for Iraq.
The 30 days is a maximum, by the way. I’m hoping it’s done before the New Year.
