In which I actually agree with Chris Hitchens

Even a broken clock is right twice a day, and this time, Christopher Hitchens has really captured my ambiguous feelings about Saddam and his ultimate demise. In his essay, Lynching the Dictator, Hitchens argues that there are still many Iraqis who never got the opportunity for justice, and that the US "helped to officiate at a human sacrifice."

It should be known I shed no tears for Saddam, but I cringe at what my nation, and, most particularly, my fellow countrymen have become: bloodthirsty, revenge-driven fantatics.

Yeah, Hitchins captures my misgivings perfectly.
