The question Du'jour, no doubt.
There is some concern that after the June 30th takeover by the Iraqi governing council, that they will not try Saddam Hussein for crimes against
humanity. An even greater fear is that he may, again, rise to power as most of his former advisors (read: henchmen) are already free and several
actually hold prestigious positions within the reconstituted Iraqi military, security forces and even the new council.
Would Iraqis stand for this? Given the current situation in Iraq, would Iraqis welcome that? Some (on the left, read as appeasement activists) have
even cited stories about Iraqis claiming that things were better under Saddam as opposed to the US occupation. What's your take on this? I'm
curious as to other people's opinions. Thanks.
