Both President Bush and his opponents in Congress are incessantly talking about "benchmarks" to guide any U.S. withdrawals from Iraq. But there is one benchmark that is always left unspoken: We cannot leave until Saddam Hussein is dead, executed for his crimes. No one will say it, but everyone knows it. As long as he is alive and well-dressed, every Iraqi will have to wonder what will happen to him and his family if Hussein returns. Only Hussein's death will assure them that he will not return.

Yeah, the Iraqis are still afraid of him. He's turning his own trial into a circus, and nobody's trying to shut him up.
Yeah, I can see that probability. But... on the other hand... a long trial, conviction, and execution would prove beneficial as well.
