So today another man is dead in Iraq. This time a man died who we’ve learned to hate and, without doubt, this man has been most hateful towards my country and what I have chosen to believe in.
It would appear that this man who died today was the man who beheaded US businessman Nicholas Berg. CNN interviewed Berg’s father to get his reaction. Berg Snr. was appalled that others would think he was happy, and that his son had been avenged. He concluded: “Under Saddam Hussein, about 30,000 deaths a year. Under George Bush, about 60,000 deaths a year. I don’t get it. Why is it better to have George Bush the king of Iraq rather than Saddam Hussein?”
