Saddam Hussein captured

December 15, 2003

Saddam Hussein was captured using a lead from his family member. He was pulled
out using ordinary showels from a hole by US soldiers. In a sense, the most
dramatic operation of the year, may be the decade, by the most powerful army
combination could succeed with ordinary low-tech leads and tools. Hopefully,
this will bring some maturity into the whole process of high-tech usage
characterized by “cowboy” type masala war shown live by CNN. High-tech
has its place; but has its own limitations. There is enough that mature,
time-tested low-tech ideas, tool and technologies can offer. It is the
creative genius that ultimately scores.
