Galbraith on Bombing

I propose a totally different way to quickly end the war in Iraq and save lives. Let the United States go before the United Nations Security Council and propose that a bounty be offered for the capture of Saddam Hussein, and that he be brought into an international court and tried for war crimes. These crimes would include his use of poison gas on his own people during his war with Iran. Let the bounty be set at $1 billion and with the condition that the Iraqi armed forces withdraw from Kuwait.

I'm willing to bet that a coalition of Iraqi officers would overthrow Saddam faster than you can spell "billion"!
