#1 On the Hitler/Saddam parralel : normally I hate the reductio ad hitlerum, but in this case I'll make an exception, since the baas party's actual translated name was "pan-arabic national-socialist party".

The baas is a *nazi* party, not in the msm sense ("you oppose gay marriage, you're a nazi"), but in the actual, national-socialist, Hitler-inspired sense... and yet, you had all thoses euro pols, whose legitimation is their guilt-inducing sacralization of their "opposition" to nazism ("it's either us, or the nzai wolf will come back and bring us to the darkest hours of our history"), who not only supported and had ties with Saddam, but sometimes were his personal friends (like Shiraq)... and now, they complain about the removal of the only "secular", "western-friendly" leader in the ME, and long for the goold old days... what a bunch of phonies abnd hypocrits!

The links between national-arabism, or national-islamism, as you would call it, and historical nazism are many, and still manifest not only in ideological stances, but also in "details", like the *nazi salute* still used by the hezbollah, the baas, and the hamas.

On an unrelated note, I'd really recommand this site about nazism, since the (false) idea that fascism and nazism were RIGHTwing was the greatest achievement of post-WWII communist propaganda, and still explains a lot the incredible shift to the left of the ueuropean political landscape.
Hitler was a leftist.

#2 Great WSJ editorial, putting matters in proper perspective.

May Saddam & Co. realize the same pain they inflicted on these innocent victims of Dujail.
