Day amid the humdrum of the usual workday a friend came to my office and we visited. She is a single mother of three, having lost her husband to the violent aftermath of the US invasion. Don't get me wrong, I don't know anyone who isn't happy that Saddam is gone but there was a lot of terror and murder and destruction in the years afterwards that took many, many lives. Yes, I don't know anyone who wishes Saddam was still in power. But I also don't know anyone who hasn't felt the loss of loved ones and heart wrenching tragedy.
