IRAQ and the fate of Saddam Hussein

Paul Simon says "I have to agree (for once!) with Daryl DeBell. I think Saddam has sawn off his own feet here!Thus giving evidence of one thing I learned in my ten years as a diplomat; it is absurd to think that regimes will act in their own best interests or to assure their own survival. Nutty dictators do spectacularly irrational things all the time, frequently hastening their own demise. So may it be with Saddam!" RH: The fate of Hitler comes to mind. Have psychiatrists like Daryl studied wishful thinking?
