A round-the-clock curfew imposed ahead of the verdict against Saddam Hussein kept a relative peace in Iraq's most dangerous regions on Sunday, but the U.S. military announced two more American deaths and police said 72 people were killed or found dead nationwide by daybreak.Am I the only one who thinks it's ironic that we are still imposing martial law on country we supposedly liberated almost four years ago? Wasn't this exactly the kind of thing from which we were saving the Iraqi people?
Iraq's government clamped the open-ended curfew on Baghdad and the restive provinces of Diyala and Salahuddin, closed the city's international airport, added checkpoints and stepped up police patrols with the U.S. military. All leave for Iraqi soldiers was canceled.
Oh, but Saddam is finally going to get his comeuppance. And something tells me the "my country, right or wrong" crowd will think that outcome alone was worth tens of thousands of American casualties.
