Iraq’s Tragic Deaths in the New Year

The day after the execution of Saddam Hussein’s execution, the 3000th American soldier dies in Iraq. His name: Dustin Donica. I wish I had the names of Iraq’s countless victims.

Saddam’s Sentencing: Grasping All That Fuss!

Today, the online edition of the San Francisco Chronicle published a great piece concerning opposing world views about the recent Iraqi court decision to uphold Saddam Hussein’s death sentence.
