Historical Weekend

An historical event took place over the weekend. It was the capture of Saddam Hussein, found hiding in a 'spider hole' south of his hometown of Tikrit. He was captured alive and pretty much well.

The international response is interesting. In Iraq, the majority seem to celebrate his capture. Arab leaders outside of Iraq are saying they are disappointed that a supposed Muslim leader would surrender so quickly. I think these Arab leaders were looking for an excuse all year to bad mouth Saddam, they knew the truth about his ways, but popular sentiment was Muslim to support Muslim so I don't think they could speak out against him until now.

Now that Hussein is incarcerated, is there a chance he'll be Saddamized?
