Left-Wing Blog Roundup

I have been surveying some of the reactions to Saddam’s capture from the left-wing of the blogosphere. While many left-wing bloggers do express delight at his capture, some are indifferent to it, while others express feelings of cynicism.

The Liberal Coalition: Yes we captured him, but where is Osama? Hussein was just a “sideshow” to show success in the War on Terror.

Lean Left: It is great news, but the war was still a mistake. States that “There is no doubt that Saddam had no significant ties to al-Queda.” I am glad he/she is so sure.

Notes on the Atrocities: Is already weary of the story. Makes the following intelligent prediction – things will either get better, worse, different or remain the same. Also states that US intelligence services suck.

Sick of Bush: Does not seem sure that Saddam’s capture will make a difference to the situation in Iraq!

The Mad Prophet Blog: Bush is a liar anyway.

Anti War Blog: No post on Saddam’s capture whatsover. Mind you, they had no post on anything yesterday. Interestingly, in their last post, they publicize a book suggesting a link between 9-11 and Israel.

Nial Cook: His whole response to the news is to question the 9-11 link to Saddam (maybe Niall subscribes to the Anti War Blog view that Israel was somehow involved?), as well as post a picture of Saddam having his mouth examined, with the caption “The search for WMD goes on unabated….open wide.”

Homeless Leftists: His capture does not matter much. Hates Christmas too.

Other Roundups Hippercritical has summarized the reactions of some other anti-Iraq war blogs, and has been met with some fierce criticism, some of which is unduly harsh. NZ Bear has an interesting summary on reactions to Saddam’s capture across the blogosphere.
