In my annual crytal ball gazing column last week, I bravely predicted:
Saddam Hussein will be executed for his crimes. Apparently quite soon. In any case, he will go to Hell, if it exists.
Well, as you know, it happened in 2006. A point which fark.com makes for me. I just didn't take into account the, huh, efficiency of the Iraqi government in this matter.
I will add that at a New Year's Eve gathering, most of my friends who oppose the death penalty could summon little outrage over Hussein's execution. Good riddance!
