Saddam’s Sons

In case there is any doubt in your mind about the quality of the regime that Saddam Hussein has built you should read this story from Newsweek about his two sons. It is clear that his sons have the souls of tyrants, and nature has not made a mistake: tyranny is both inherited and cultivated. And these true sons, trying to outdo their father, make sure that (as Macduff says):

Each new morn,

New widows howl, new orphans cry; new sorrows

Strike heaven on the face.

Yet, we must be satisfied in knowing that, at least in part, justice means that measure for measure must be answered. They will bleed for it.
