On Second Thought…

Saddam’s sons death, undoubtedly a huge coup for US efforts in Iraq, might not be such a good thing in the long run. Those two represented the very worst of the Baathist regime and even those who liked Saddam didn’t like his “Cubs”. With two of them conveniently turned into martyrs, anti-US resistance in Iraq could easily disassociate itself from the Baathist past and sell itself to the people as embodiment of true patriotism without any ulterior motives.
