Arab Media Confront the 'New Rules of the Game'

How some Arab press are viewing end of Saddam, now that the lies and fantasies have come to an end, and the new reality sets in. What I thought was most interesting was, as some view our actions as inviting terrorism, John Bradley of the Arab News, looks at it from another perspective:"Yes, there will be more terrorism, and Osama Bin Laden - or at least his infamous voice - was heard once more yesterday, calling for suicide attacks and thus giving more easy justification, as he did on Sept. 11, to America's imperial ambition. Thanks, Osama, you've done us all about as much good as George W. Bush."
