The Prosecution of the President of former Iraq, transformed him to a heroic champion, agree or not?
President George Bush has at least one achievement to his credit in his war against Saddam Hussein. He has transformed Saddam into a heroic champion in the eyes of many in the region and might elevate his status into that of a mythological figure if he succeeds in killing or capturing more British and American soldiers and in turning Baghdad into an Arab and Islamic Stalingrad.
It is now clear that events are not going according to the plans prepared in Washington and London and that Saddam's strength and the Iraqi people's reaction to the war were misjudged. Saddam has outfoxed his enemies. He has managed to surprise all in Washington, London and Arab capitals with his ability to absorb the strikes of the first days of confrontation, to turn the psychological war directed against him into a source of self-confidence, and to manipulate America's overwhelming military superiority in his favour.

You do realize he was overthrown, captured, tried, convicted and executed, right? So I disagree. Who? Who sees him as a "heroic champion"? Iran? No. The US? No. Saudi Arabia? No. Turkey, Russia, Egypt, China? No. Iraq? Not so much. Those who supported him still do. Those who didn't still do not. Nothing in his status has changed except he is dead.

In your opinion. I say it's too early to tell.
