Calling The Hague

Another reader reports on humiliation talk:

I’m am American expat living in London, and I was listening to BBC London (Radio 5) shortly after the announcement of Saddam’s capture. The host of a call-in show was going on about how the Americans unnecessarily subjected Saddam to humiliation by showing the video of him being given a medical exam and being unwashed and unshaven. She termed it “serial humiliation”, and asked “what’s next, beheading him and parading his head on a pole around Baghdad”? It’s absolutely amazing how so many here dredge up hatred for the U.S. no matter what.
