At some point in the next several days, we are likely to see something that may even rival the sight of O.J. Simpson pleading "one hundred percent not guilty" of the crime of double homicide: Saddam Hussein going before an Iraqi court and being read the Mother of All Indictments.
You may consider this Exhibit "A" in the re-election of George W. Bush.
Not even Big Media will be able to ignore this story. It is beyond celebrity. It will be, as we knew last December when the Butcher of Baghdad was plucked from his hole like a fat tuber, one of those moments in History that we never saw with Hitler or Stalin. One of the blackest beasts of the late 20th Century will be arraigned, tried, convicted, and executed at the hands of those whom he terrorized for more than a generation.
The rightness of our cause in Iraq will only continue to express itself as this man's crimes are rehearsed and exposed. No Leftist blather or anti-Bush hatred will overcome it, either. It will dominate the news in ways the Big Media elites can only ignore at their peril. And they will give in. They will carry it live because everyone wants to see Saddam's face.
Sure, he's going to get his Goering hours in, but Saddam will happily take everyone down with him. Will he rat us out, too ---incriminating us for our triangulations with him against our mutual Iranian enemies? Probably. But he'll also take Chiraq's France down with him. Maybe even Putin's Russia, too. It'll be a Big House Cleaning, folks. A show trial like you've never seen before. One that will consume the minds and move the tongues of an entire nation of the newly liberated.
Let freedom reign. Let justice be done though the heavens fall. Let the validation of our efforts there begin.
And don't change that channel.
