Sunday, December 31, 2006


At dawn on December 30, 2006, Saddam Hussein was executed for but one of the countless atrocities he committed as the leader of Iraq. Much of the world was outraged. Palestinians set up mourning tents as terrorist groups cried foul, the leader of Libya declared three days of mourning for the deceased dictator, and the Anglican church, Vatican, and much of Europe (though acknowledging his guilt) queued up to issue their terse condemnations.

On that same day 80 Iraqi civilians were killed in various terror attacks throughout Iraq, raising the total killed for the month to 2,186.
On this, the world's silence is deafening.
