Saddam Day

Remember, remember,
The Ninth of April

Somehow this picture, embodying Saddam's meglomania, omnipresence, hypocrisy, and open blasphemy, says so much about what came to an end 5 years ago today.

The mass graves are horrible, yes, but consider the steady diet of surrealism-as-realism that Iraqi's were expected to eat every single day in all aspects of their lives. No wonder post-Saddam Iraq has been what it has been.
