1. "the world is a safer and better place now that he is in custody."
The world is a different place. Whether it's safer remains to be seen, as the wheels of the inevitable power struggle and potential civil war have now begun to turn.

450 dead U.S. troops, thousands of troops wounded, thousands of Iraqis dead. Why did we not offer $25 million, even a hundred million, as a bounty to begin with?

Where is Osama? Does bush** remember him? He's the one who orchestrated 9-11. For some reason, Saddam's pathetic capture does not make me feel like cheering ...
