On the Occasion of the Death of Saddam Hussein
The old year is dying fast. What a special year it's been, too: a year of recurring thanatological celebration. So what better way to ring out the old year than to...kill something else? And what better way to send a message of our continuing, unwavering support toward current allies, than to celebrate the death of an old one?
Because as history has repeatedly shown us, nothing solves a problem like death.
In fact, the more dying there is, the better the world gets.
And if the media can make a few bucks off some medieval displays of that death, and desensitize the paying masses even further into Romanesque barbarity, why, surely God will love us even more. Now, I know there are some wet blankets out there who worry about a backlash now that Saddam is dead, but, really, people. Even if there was, how would we know?
I can hardly wait to see what awaits us in the new year.
