I don’t know about you guys, but watching the Youtube video of Saddam’s hanging has left my stomach queasy.
Violence begets violence.
I don’t condone the many crimes Saddam committed as a world leader, but I do ask which world leader’s hands are bloodless? I do not think Saddam should have been hanged for actions other leaders undertake everyday.
Also why the rush to have him killed? American inmates are often on death row for twenty to thirty years going through various appeals processes. The Hague trials take years, and leaders are often given the option of exile, no matter how horrendous their crimes.
The whole event has fiasco bloodied all over it. The hurried execution of Saddam has made more evident the farce of this so proclaimed ‘fair trial’
Did the foolish Bush government really think Hussein’s death will help quell the growing disaster in Iraq? Jeepers Creepers I hope not.
