Good News

The latest news is that Saddam Hussein may have been captured. Clearly, that would be unambiguously good news. But it leads me to wonder whether the opposition is driven by pro-Saddam loyalty or anti-American sentiment. If the former, then things could take a turn for the better; if the latter, then we’re likely to keep seeing more of the same. Either way, it is — at the least — an important symbolic victory.
