I agree with Salam Pax on this one...

"I want a fully functioning Saddam who will sit on a chair in front of a TV camera for 10 hours everyday and tells us what exactly happened the last 30 years .... We all know he should rot in hell. but what I do care about is that he gets a public trial because I want to hear all the untold stories."

Seriously. Saddam should be allowed to implicate as many co-conspiritors as he can, no matter whether they are Americans, British, German, or French. The outcome of Saddam's trial is largely moot, but if it can serve some purpose, it can help to make it clear to "decent democratic politicians" that if you help out the scum of the earth, your hands might get dirty too.

Let's face it. Reagan and Bush Sr. almost certainly knew about arms for hostages in Iran. They also helped arm and train many of the same forces that became Al Qaeda. Now, with any luck, they will get one more black mark on their record for their invaluable assistance in the most widespread use of deadly chemical weapons since WWI. And yet, there are -- as always -- no repercussions. Maybe this time, however, there will be more of a stench.

Hopefully, we can stop talking about putting Reagan on the dime soon.
