Iraq shrugs

By Creature

Saddam is sentenced to hang and it means absolutely nothing to those who must live with the violence George W. Bush has unleashed.

Once the clatter of celebratory gunfire that greeted the verdict had died down, Iraqis' thoughts returned to their own future, and the depressing realization that it is no less bleak than it was yesterday. "Whether Saddam lives or dies is not important to me," shrugs Imad Mohammed, a computer technician. "I'm not even sure whether my family and I will live or die."

The Bush administration can spin the Saddam verdict however they choose, but the reality on the ground is a story that is unspinnable.
