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%
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.
