The footage

of Saddam Hussein’s hanging have been playing on my mind. I am deeply shocked at a) when it happened, b) how it came to pass, c) the fact it was filmed, and d) the logic that deemed it necessary to show on evening news bulletins.

I’ve been trying to formulate a post on it, but it just seemed so, infantile, in my attempts to put my thoughts to an increasingly complicated, complex situation.

Then I read the piece by the author Bob Ellis in yesterday’s The Sydney Morning Herald and it really said what I felt far more eloquently that any of my attempts.
