Fear that Saddam Might Return

This Washington Post story on how the Iraqis are becoming increasingly concerned (read afraid) that Saddam is not only alive but might get back into power is full of the now standard stuff (i.e., that we had better catch Saddam soon). But, also note this nugget that may be to our advantage (and to the advantage of anti-Saddam Iraqis): "Inside every one of us there is the fear of what will happen if the American people start pushing their government because they are losing so many soldiers every day," said Fadhil Majid, an employee at a bridal shop in the Adhamiyah neighborhood. "If they decide to withdraw, what will happen to us? Saddam is still free. With all the [militiamen] around, what kind of life will we have?"

And the Christian Science Monitor reports that the morale of US troops in Iraq is very, very low.

It can’t be that low... I wouldn’t believe the Christian Science Monitor... Maybe Congress could aprove a pay raise and a shipment of Skoal and Kodiak.
