With Washington Post reporters on what they've seen in Iraq.
Frankfort, Ky.: Do you think the resistance of the Baathist party members will be eliminated when Saddam is captured or killed?

Anthony Shadid: That's definitely the pressing question here. My sense in spending time in the area north of Baghdad, where the attacks are concentrated, is that Hussein's death or capture will diminish the resistance. But I don't believe it will end it, and I think one trend that may emerge in the coming months is a more apparent Islamic opposition -- both home-grown and imported -- that we've only started to see recently.
