What to Do With the Man

The news of Saddam's capture is, of course, delightful, and good in an unqualified sense. Already those on the left are finding caveats and those on the right are becoming unbearably smug, but I'll leave them to their own respective spins and say that from here, where I stand, this is a good work done, and many thanks to those who made it possible.

The question now is what to do with Saddam. While I'm sure that many people will come up with many suggestions, allow me to suggest that we do to him what I would have us do to Osama bin Laden, should we find him: Put him in a clear plastic box, surrounded by television monitors that play testimonies of those who he has tortured and imprisoned, and the testimonies of the friends and families of those he has killed, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, ceaselessly, until the man dies. And of course, I would make sure he lived a very long time indeed.
