Bush Rehabilitates Saddam

It beggars belief that Bush, surely the worst president in living memory, could further sully his reputation for incompetence.

Yet it appears that he has managed just that.

As if the fiasco of the post Iraq occupation was not bad enough, it seems according to reports that the manner of the state "lynching" of Saddam Hussein (which had been approved of by the US, and endorsed "after the fact" by Bush) has rallied support for Saddam on "Arab Street".

Bush has succeeded in reversing Saddam's image from that of failed dictator, to Arab martyr. No wonder Saddam had a smile on his face as he approached the gallows.

It should also be noted that it is reported that Bush has not actually seen the video of Saddam's execution.

As to the future, those of you who think that the failure in Iraq has taught Bush anything will be sorely disappointed. He is currently rallying an alliance of Saudi Arabia, Israel and the UK to take action against Iran.

The newly elected Congress and Senate in the US will need to get its act together very quickly, if it is to stop Bush starting something that would make the Iraq debacle look like a stunning success.
