Saddam Hangs, Nothing Changes?

So in the early hours of the morning, the news that Saddam Hussein had been executed. Sadly I suspect that it will further divide Iraq, and certainly will change little in the disintegration of the country, as can be seen by the differing reactions in Sunni and Shia areas of the country. There are also awkward questions coming up in discussion forums as, amongst a number of issues, people consider the fact that he was executed before a number of other cases against him had been prosecuted – cases that have awkward questions with regards to the involvement of the west. Having said that the BBC seems to be getting in relatively quickly with a comment piece implying that even after his death Saddam will continue to haunt Bush – probably the biggest certainty after the events of this morning.
