Saddam’s Box

December 16, 2003

As you’ve read everywhere, Saddam has been captured. I watched the footage of his medical check-up and of Iraqi’s dancing in the streets on news of his capture, as I was getting ready for church Sunday. While I think that this is just the start of the end of our war in Iraq, Niki (my wife) has a sinking feeling that it’s really the start of something else. Have we opened Pandora’s Box by capturing Saddam Hussein?

Sure, we’re still fighting what is essentially two wars: Afghanistan and Iraq both under the guise of a “War on Terrorism”. We have one mastermind, but we’re still without Osama Bin Laden….who, in my opinion, is our greater threat. I’m interested in how this will all playout in the coming election year.
