Towards A Good Samaritan World

Monday, November 13, 2006

Iraqi blogger Zeyad has a long post of Iraqi blogger's reactions to Saddam's execution. The gratitude and joy at justice finally being done is visible in a lot of the posts, but there's also a lot of bitterness at the violence the country is suffering from now, and some don't think that Saddam's execution will do any good in practice.

Saddam's execution could affect the incentives facing other dictators, as I argued in "Iraq and the Police Principle" last year. (That essay didn't get much buzz, but I think it was a good one.)
