"U.S. Double Standards are Fueling Arab Hate"

Reaction to Saddam's hanging from our friends the Saudis.

Fisk notes the US created Saddam and then destroyed him.
When he was captured in November of 2003, the insurgency against American troops increased in ferocity. After his death, it will redouble in intensity again. Freed from the remotest possibility of Saddam's return by his execution, the West's enemies in Iraq have no reason to fear the return of his Baathist regime. Osama bin Laden will certainly rejoice, along with Bush and Blair. And there's a thought. So many crimes avenged.
