Saddam's Mass Grave in Karbala
Just another reminder of Saddam's hideous reign of terror for those wayleftward leaners who only begrudgingly - and only in cursory attempts to blunt their anti-liberation rhetoric - acknowledge him rather antiseptically as a "bad guy":
Municipal employees working on a sewage project in the Shiite holy city of Karbala found skeletal remains believed to be from a mass grave dating to 1991.
Officials said the grave may contain over 100 victims, including women and children, of a brutal crackdown by Saddam Hussein's regime following a Shiite uprising in the south after Desert Storm.
The slaying of 100 of his own people may seem like a mere drop in the bucket compared to Saddam's body of work, but bear in mind that this grave alone holds more victims than were claimed by Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacey, Jack the Ripper, and the Beltway snipers combined.
