Not to sound like a cynic, but other than figureheads, I want to know how much guys like Saddam and Osama really matter any more. Other than morale, is capturing them really going to make that much of a difference? I have to wonder how much of an impact capturing Saddam's two sons will have. If anything, I see it making things worse, or at least not helping.
I think the US needs to start concentrating a little more heavily on North Korea. They're the ones with nukes, and they're desperate enough to use them. I think the oppression there is much more serious than anything encountered in the Middle East.
Hmmmmm, guess I do sound like a cynic.
I think it will have some impact on the Iraqi people. I mean, those two sons were pretty bad mofos, and I'm sure the Iraqi people will be a little less upset about us being there now these guys are dead...well....maybe. But I'm sure they'll feel more confident about their new "gov't" now that there's no chance of the Saddam family getting back into power and punishing the civilians.
