<nettime> visual comment/associations: arrest of Karadicz & the beard of Saddam

last resort for a haunted man is to hide behind his beard covering a  
face that became a public icon ~ once his zeal is betrayed and his  
cover is torn, it still will take generations before his defaced idol  
has vanished from all shrines

to ridicule and make laughing stock out of a former ennemy is missing  
the opportunity to come to an understanding WHY it was that such a  
man could hold such power ~ it is failing to learn a lesson how to  
prevent it happeming again and again
