Ding dong, Saddam is dead

Or badly hurt and deep in hiding, with no al-Jazeera to send us his latest home videos.

A ruthless dictator has been deposed by U.S. force.

So now what?

We rebuild Iraq. As Letterman pointed out last night, we make it into a strong, healthy nation... which hates us.

We move along in our icy relations with the U.N. and the nations that used to be our allies.

We look all over for those Weapons of Mass Destruction that we played charades over. If we don't find them, we'll have to conclude that they were there, but they've been shipped out to Syria.

Of course, we hire big corporations from Texas to make lots of money on the cleanup and nation building.

We start equipping commercial jets with anti-missile equipment.

We continue the "homeland" war on terrorism.

Why aren't we celebrating?
