In preparation for the publication of pictures of Saddam's sons' dead bodies, let's remember the first evil emperor whose dead body was paraded in front of the cameras: poor old Maximilian, of Mexico. Never trust Napoleon.

"'We will believe they are dead when Uday's and Qusay's bodies are tied to cars and dragged through the streets so everybody can see them,' said Muhammad, a Baghdad engineer. "
Forget photographs. What is needed here is some good old fashioned head-on-a-pike type evidence.
Ah, America, bringer of democracy, peace, stability, and civilization.
well, what do they do with the bodies? obviously saddam ain't claiming them. and they can't bury them. do they just keep them in the morgue forever? what ever happened to hitler's remains?
