I'll say it, because the Bush family is too humble to say it: The son has vindicated the father. I'm certain that there is no one more pleased today than George Herbert Walker Bush.

Contrast Saddam in his underground 'hidy-hole' with the pic last spring of the American soldiers sitting in Saddam's palace with their feet up on his table, smoking his cigars, etc.

Wonderful work Diogenesis - Thanks! And Thank You 4th ID!

Halleluiah and Amen

I am truly looking forward to those who have said Iraq was not part of OBL's war of terrorism, how they have tried to side track the efforts in Iraq and still are. Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy et al, Hillary dishing out her United Nations plea to our troops at Thanksgiving dinner with them; France wanting to resume their game in Iraq and on and on; shame and more shame on them.

Thank Heaven's for our President George Bush and his determination. Don Rumsfeld and his command is key to the success of this mission in spite of the left and other detractors. God’s Blessing on ‘em all!

I have always had the hunch, that the issue of Iraq had more to do with bin Laden than with MWD's. We could have always bombed Iraq back to the stone age, but to allow it to become a breeding pit for Al Qeada was not an option. I don't care if we ever find bugs, gas or nukes, the cesspool of Iraq had to be cleaned up or NY and Wash.D.C. were going to get it again.

Sooner or later. Fidel had a restless night, last night. The beginning of many.

WOW! What a proud day for our military and President Bush! As for sadaam insane, well any punishment I can think of is too good for him. Even death isn't good enough. If only he could personally experience ALL he did directly or indirectly through others could be done to him, well that would be a start. That man is pure evil.

Seeing him, makes my skin crawl. He looks like a defeated old homeless person. I think NOW we will have all the cooperation we need to make this a success. Thank God, he's a has been.
