Cracks a smile:

Here is an assessment of Hussein. It says that "the destiny of the country is more important than the destiny of the man, and because the messages sent from Iraq arouse anxiety not happiness." The text then says:

...."is there anything more dangerous than Saddam and his regime on Iraq and the region? The answer is yes. Some of what is happening in the presence of the bloody chaos warns with an Iraq more dangerous than the Iraq of Saddam.The Lebanese learnt from their bad luck that much rhetoric on burying the hatchet confirm its presence, and maybe, its roots and the danger of its increase."

The spectre raised is that of Lebanon:

"What is happening in Iraq should ring the alarm bell. Iraq's fire is more dangerous than the Lebanese one. The explosion of the Iraqi volcano will disturb the atmosphere of the region with lava, ashes, and tremor. The most dangerous thing that might happen is that we wake up and see confrontation lines in Iraq or an Arab-Kurdish brush, without forgetting the danger of the transformation of Iraq into an academy that graduates suiciders in preparation of the formation of the returnees' conflict from Iraq."

The capture of Saddam is the sideshow. Central for Bush's re-election but still a sideshow.
