John Keegan just mentions the security benefit of Saddams capture, then considers what he calls constitutional issues (nice word for a new regime, dont you think?) in this very thoughtful article. In other words, how should he be dealt with? He rolls through the Treaty of Westphalia, Napoleon taking refuge on a British warship, France not wanting anything to do with him, etc. The short of it is that the new government in Iraq will decide and we will hold him until then, by right. Very good article, file it.
