However, what I think is even more troubling than saddam’s obvious narcissism is his sickening brutality. More troubling still, is the fact that so many don’t care.
Is there something in us that should recoil at hearing stories of women raped or set on fire, men put into shreaders or having their skin raked off by huge grinders?
Shouldn’t the stories, from Saddam’s ex mistress, of how it was hard to sleep hearing the screams of children being savagly murdered interupt or sleep just a little??
…or does the justification of this war hinge on whether or not Saddam did in fact try to purchase yellow cake from Niger??
Where’s the humanity?
