What to do with Saddam Hussein? Robb Hibbard (Wednesday, 2:16 pm) suggests the Ludovico Technique, as described in A Clockwork Orange:
Ideally, Saddam would undergo the treatment received by the droog Alex in Anthony Burgess' best-known work. The bezoomy old veck's glazzies would be pried open real dobby as he viddied the veshch he created.

I couldn't care less about the philosophizing. If ever someone merited some horrorshow tolchocking, it's Saddam.
Choodesny, O my droogies, to viddy such in the gazetta.
