Lights, Camera . . .

A movement is underway among some Iraqis to televise Saddam Hussein’s execution.  Howar Ziad, Iraqi Ambassador to Canada, has even offered to show the execution via closed circuit television at the Iraqi embassy in Canada if enough Canadian Iraqis show interest.

Just about everyone agrees that victory in Iraq requires the cooperation of the Iraqi people.  One factor often cited as an obstacle to such cooperation is the fear that Saddam Hussein will return to power.  Televising Hussein’s trip to hell would decimate that fear forever.  I think it’s a great idea.
