The Hangman Returns

Wasn't one of the complaints against Saddam public hangings? The Shia-Kurd goverment has just strung up 13 Sunnis for sedition. Upwards of 30,000 Sunni Iraqi prisoners in outdoor detention centers, Shi'ite hit squads running amok and their militias are raiding the jails and summarily executing inmates.

Bush has put himself behind the opposite faction. That's all that has changed in Iraq --for the worse.
