The Washington Post reports on

The Washington Post reports on a street demonstration in Iraq. Relatives of political prisoners who were not freed in the recent amnesty–most likely because they are dead–protested and demanded information about their whereabouts. The Post reports that the demonstration “shocked political observers here and left them wondering about its meaning.” A professor at Baghdad University says that “Something like this has never happened before.” The demonstration was broken up after a half hour by a policeman wielding an AK-47. Well, it’s a start, I guess. If and when the war starts, I think the floodgates will open quickly, and Saddam will be fleeing for sanctuary like Idi Amin and the “Cannibal Emperor” Bokassa.
