Oh great. Just what we needed. Having to spend the last weekend of this wretched year waiting for Saddam to die. Respectfully.
What a fucking joke. As if you could hang someone respectfully. Although I see that the Criminal Bush Regime is worried that the body might be mutilated. So much for the new Iraq. What a horrifying little hell these monsters have created.
And what good will it do to kill one more person in that slaughterhouse called Iraq? Except fuel more violence. And please the bloodthirsty mob and the crazy mullahs in Iran. Just ask this Baghdad Blogger.
"Why make things worse by insisting on Saddam's execution now? Who gains if they hang Saddam? Iran, naturally, but who else? There is a real fear that this execution will be the final blow that will shatter Iraq. Some Sunni and Shia tribes have threatened to arm their members against the Americans if Saddam is executed. Iraqis in general are watching closely to see what happens next, and quietly preparing for the worst."
As for me...I don't care whether the trial was fair or a farce. I don't care whether Saddam Hussein was a monster or just a bloody butcher. I'm opposed to the death penalty no matter what. And I don't care whether the prisoner is killed by lethal injection or stoned to death, or hanged or thrown into a snowblower. So every member of the brutish mob can take home a piece of him. It's an abomination. Period
How can you teach children that every human life is precious? When the state is allowed to get away with legalized murder.
But then what can you say about that rotten and barbarous country called Amerika where killing people is as Amerikan as Paris Hilton, New Coke and apple pie? Where crazy wingnut born agains demand human lives to appease their vengeful ju ju gods. Even when it's torture.
What can you say about a sick society where doctors have to hide their faces? Because instead of healing people as they are supposed to do. They're murdering them.
Not much. Except thank goodness we live in Canada. And let's make damm fucking sure that Stephen Harper and his bloodthirsty neocon crazies never get a majority. Or we will soon be murdering our own people just like the Americans do.
They are so fucking stupid they don't even realize that the more people they kill. The more they kill themselves. If you're not better than the brutal savages of this world you don't stand for anything at all. You are just one of them
They don't understand that the rope they use to hang Saddam will be just be just another inch on the giant rope that will one day hang them all.
I'd be opposed to that of course. I don't believe in the death penalty under any circumstances.
But since they have created an ocean of blood. Nothing would make me happier.
Than watch them drown in it.
Respectfully of course....
UPDATE 11:17 pm
They killed him.
"Saddam's execution marks the end of a dark period of Iraq's history."
Oh really? One more drop in the ocean.
Talk about tragedy turning to farce...
