Iraqi In-Justice

Now if I understand this correctly Saddam Hussien was tried in an Iraqi court, under Iraqi laws, by an Iraqi Judge (or two or three), and found guilty and sentenced to die.

And this is the same leagal system he used to judge his enemies and execute them. Hmm and this is a change for the better? I think not.

In fact the only country that overwhelmingly supports the barbarity of Iraq's capital punishment legal system is of course the United States, home of State sanctioned murder of Afro- Americans, the mentally and emotionally challenged, the poor, etc.

According to a recent study carried out by Institut Novatris/Harris for France 24 Western public opinion favors the death penalty against Saddam Hussein as following:

US 82%
UK 69%
France 58%
Germany 53%
Spain 51%
Italy 46%



And now this client state of the United States has had its kangaroo court, complete with censored broadcasts, it cannot say when it will execute Saddam. This is transparency? This is democracy. Not.


- Former president Saddam Hussein faced hanging within 30 days on Wednesday, but Iraq's government maintained silence about the conduct of the execution, seeking to contain political tensions his death might unleash.


What should have happened is that Saddam should have been tried in the Hauge, at the international court. But the US does not recognize its jurisdiction. Instead a kangaroo court in Iraq set up after the complete destruction of the Iraqi State by the U.S. will decide Saddams fate under the same rules he applied. Some will say this is poetic justice. I would say it is a legal lynching, something that is as American as apple pie.


Excerpts from letter in Saddam's name
Associated Press

... Here, I offer my soul to God as a sacrifice, and if He wants, He will send it to heaven with the martyrs, or, He will postpone that ... so let us be patient and depend on Him against the unjust nations...Dear faithful people, I say goodbye to you, but I will be with the merciful God who helps those who take refuge in him and who will never disappoint any faithful, honest believer ... God is Great ... God is great ... Long live our nation ... Long live our great struggling people ... Long live Iraq, long live Iraq ... Long live Palestine ... Long live jihad and the mujahideen...

Feel free to name exactly whom in America was tried convicted and executed for the crime of being "Afro-American" or "emotionally challenged", etc. etc.

As usual, when it comes right down to it you don't have anybody, because (hate to spoil the answer before you spend 16 hours research) the United States doesn't sanction the murder of blacks. Quite the opposite, in fact, they give quite the significant number of lethal injections to men who have proven themselves quite willing to murder other men of that particular skin colour.

Saddam Hussein, another guy who seemed to get quite the kick out of murdering darkies, will similarly be executed for his crimes. I know this seems harsh for the crowd that dreams of giving him a chair at the Humanities Department of the University of Western Ontario one day, but its a good result. Particularly because it seems harsh for the crowd that dreams of giving him a chair at the Humanities Department of the University of Western Ontario one day.

Actually I think that Phillip Rushton is vying for that chair. And I am sure some folks would reccomend the same punishment for him
