Why was Saddam's body given over to his supporters so that they could make his grave a fucking pilgrimage site???
Thousands of mourners flocked to Awja, where Mr. Hussein’s body has lain in a reception hall. The body, in a plain wood coffin draped in an Iraqi flag, has become a point of pilgrimage for loyalists. Many of those reaching Awja have wept as they filed past the coffin, shouting slogans of fealty of the kind that were universal in Iraq when Mr. Hussein was the country’s dictator.
After Nuremberg, the convicted were hanged, cremated, and their ashes dumped in the Isar river, just to avoid precisely this situation!
