Unmitigated Chaos?!

Here are words of caution if I've ever heard them:

WASHINGTON - Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, a member ofSaddam Hussein's defense team, predicted on Thursday that a bloodbath would follow should an Iraqi court trying the former president have him executed.

At a news conference, Clark said he feared that should Saddam and the others be hanged, "catastrophic violence" would follow that would lead to "the end of civilization as we know it in the birthplace of civilization, Mesopotamia. Total, unmitigated chaos."

Everyone knows Clark has been totally against the war in Iraq for quite sometime. Follow this link for that story.

And, seeing how he is representing Saddam at trial, one cannot help but ask if his concern is his own hype or based on a very real threat. I don't know the answer but his words are strong.
