Still not much time…

Still not much time for blogging. For now, just a question: what is the difference between U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan’s comments of this weekend to the effect that Iraq was better with Saddam Hussein in power, on the one hand, and some Italians’ insistence that quando c’era il duce queste cose non succedevano (These things didn’t happen where there was the duce –Mussolini- which means, idiomatically, things were better with a dictator.)? Do the Shi’ite Muslims and the ethnic Kurds agree?
