I think all of the looting and destruction in Baghdad is really good, not because stealing and breaking things is okay, but because ordinary people will go on in their lives with the memory of doing something exciting and dramatic during the last days of the regime. It will feel like they were involved in something big; they'll remember it as something thrilling. I saw a picture in the Times of small children dancing on a portrait of Saddam's face...they'll tell their grandkids about that.

Now we need to get them some food and water and fix their houses, and not leave them in the shit, like we seem to be doing with the Afghans.
