Sic Semper Tyrannis

Saddam Hussein, the Butcher of Baghdad now burns in Hell.

The greatest travesty of this man’s death is that he killed so many, yet we can only kill him once. Still, his actions were so far beyond the bounds of humanity that his death was necessary. Such evil should never be tolerated. The Hussein regime systematically brutalized the Iraqi people — nothing we can do can bring back what he stole from millions of Iraqis, but we can ensure that this monster will never cause harm again.

Thus, always, to tyrants.

    Does it bother you, at all, that you’ve commemorated the death of Saddam with the exact words used by Booth at his assassination of President Lincoln?

    At any rate, a bad guy is dead. That’s a net benefit, regardless of the fact that Hell is just make-believe.

    And, long before that, the words attributed to Brutus after the murder of Caesar.
