SADDAM IS CALLING FOR IRAQIS TO RECONCILE: Austin Bay approves of the sentiment, but has doubts about Saddam’s credibility: “Start with the corpses. Heâ€™s now on trial for the deaths of 185,000 Kurdish men, women, and children slain in the 1987-88 Anfal operation. (The AP report says 180,000. An Iraqi report I read a couple of weeks ago said 185,000. Ballpark figures for mass murder are bitter math.) Tony Blairâ€™s opinion on capital punishment, the Popeâ€™s opinion, the opinion of the NY Times editiorial board â€” none of these mean squat. The opinion of the Iraqi people matters and I strongly suspect they favor hanging him high.”
