Interesting to see if he undertakes a form of exile back to Iran or if he stays in Iraq to assume some largely ceremonial post within the Iraqi government.

good. his time was up and the Iraqi people surely don't need any more bloodshed in addition to the blood that has been shed and must be shed expelling the insurgents.

it's good that he didn't decide to do something that would merit him being tied to some ceremonial post, blindfolded and shot.
