Saddam will be hung within 30 days
« on: December 26, 2006, 11:14:55 PM »
Today we got news that Saddam Hussein will be hung within 30 days...Who could feel sorry for him but the question begs as to where this will bring the quagmire that is Iraq as a result.   One would hope that the Iraqi people would use his death sentence to end the civil war there (can we call a spade a spade please) but already there is talk of a Sunni revolt against the shoestring government they have in place...When will we be able to get our troops (and others) home safely and see peace there?  When can we stop hemmoraging money and spend it on things that help us in constructive ways?  With our New Year less than a week away I hope and pray for peace everywhere on earth.

Jody,

You ask some good questions. Unfortunately, I've heard no good answers to them.

Heaven knows I don't have a clue how to fix the mess ol' what's-his-name in D.C. got us into.

Let us all just pray for peace.

HUGS,

Mark

Steve, did anyone say that just by removing the dictator that you will automatically achieve a democracy? I don't think anyone believed that. I don't think they should have pulled him out of his hole. One bullet to the head and the story would have been over.

No Rod, but I think history will show that you (and I include Aus in this, as we are in there too) don't impose a democracy from outside. It is something that comes from within, the will of the people.
All that removing Saddam has achieved is to let ethnic and religious tensions, that were previously suppressed (albeit by a dictator) rise to the surface. And for that, I blame the colonialsts who originally divided the middle east up to suit there own selfish needs.
No good will come from the current situation. 100's of thousands of lives have been lost, for what? and more will be lost. It's a tragedy.
One bullet in the head! - well, as I said, I don't believe in the death penalty. The west supported Saddam for years, because it suited them, then they turned on him, again because it suited their purposes.

Steve,

Besides Saddam, the other war criminals were just judged by their own people in Europe i.e. Aznar, Bambi (his party got slapped in the face) and the Mafioso Berlusconi are almost all out of power and in disgrace.
 How about the other war criminal known  as the primus inter pares who is still in power in North America?  And his clique?  Condy, Rumsfeld, Powell and the like... They should all be hanged with Saddam as well.

The Iraqis should make it a pay for view event, it would rake in billions.  Maybe have W as the executioner?
How about start of the show with letting some Kurds have their way with Saddam, sorta of like that basement scene in "pulp fiction". Then while they are cleaning Saddam up for the main event, you could televise some the local axing of appendages for offenses such as whacking off or homosexuality. Then a couple of decapitations of local troublemakers, and of course the hanging of Saddam. Then you bring in some of those crazy Afghans and let them play that polo game where they use human heads like hockey pucks.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.  He won't be missed.

It still wasn't worth the effort to make it happen.  Iraq is prime example of the sheer arrogance and futility of trying to change a country through military invasion and occupation.   It was a lousy idea hatched by a so-called think tank that cobbled together a really pathetic rationalization for the use of military force to try to shape another country and culture to one more of our liking.   It was never about national security, although I suppose some people actually did believe it was among the populace.  I don't think for a second that anyone truly in the position to make these decisions did so out of any real concern about a threat posed by a petty dictator that we had contained for over a decade.   

The republicans for the most part had be hijacked by some idiotic fervor of using our military to force change in the region and seized on the attacks of 9/11 as an excuse to do something they were practically salivating to do for years before 9/11.  Some saw it as a way to open new markets to the US and enrich themselves.  Others had a barely hidden notion that through imperialism, we could extend our influence in a way that would make the history books and that we could create a different  and better world by use of the sword.

The democrats weren't much better.  They capitulated for fear of being smeared as weak on national defense.  God bless the 21 democrats and 1 republican and 1 independent in the Senate, and the 81 democrats and 6 republicans and 1 democrat that voted against this idiotic idea.   

And the White House wanted to make a name for itself for posterity and to achieve a permanent empirical validation of their agenda and way of thinking.

In the end, Iraq is basically a pyrrhic  victory.

Huh? Still hard to believe anyone really thinks someone in administration went to war to enrich themselves or friends. Some of the other stuff in your post might be true. In the shadow of 911 it would have been irresponsible for any US president not to take out Saddam.  Clinton,lurch,and most powerful Dems said he had WMD and he should be taken out prior to Bush presidency. 
I never remember anything about starting a Democracy there prior to going in. I was in an argument with a friend of mine from the left coast who says that was one  of the reasons given before war.
What amazes me is how little both parties know and understand the culture in the mid east.  They hate us because we always appear weak to them. We cut and ran in Beirut and Somalia. We ignored the African Embassy bombings. We treated the first WTC bombers as common criminals rather than an enemy attacking our country. They believe our civilization in in decline because we refuse to destroy our enemies and would rather appease. The recent Baker report just strengthens those beliefs.
Anyone read George Friedmans "americas secret war"? pretty interesting and not political so it will piss off both sides.

The Europeans, in general, are against death penalty.  And it is only  logical to expect that they make their voice heard in the following days.  I, for one thing, would not be surprised at all if an ""independent newspaper"" in the U.S. brought to light this whole affair i.e. The Bush Administration political pressures and manoeuvres to make it coincide with the Republican political agenda...

Rod,

You make me laugh!  ""It is all over?""  I've got news for you: the Iraq mess has just started!  Now the shit really has hit the fan...  Wait some weeks and you will see more and more innocent lives being slaughtered like never before.  
And all this for a totally senseless, illegal and cynical war that the U.S., Britain and a plethora of caniches --- well, what I am saying, the British are the first caniches of the Americans --- have decided to wage against the Iraqi  people indirectly.  
Yes, I say The Iraqi People because they are the ones suffering atrociously on their daily lives, while we, in the West, commemorate Christmas and exchange all kinds of ridiculous and exprensive  presents.  The West, in general, has no memory!

Grass,

Another interesting reading!  But, let's not forget that Europe also participated in all this charade...
The problem with the American attitude, in my opinion, is that they put a totally stupid, naif and petrol hungry cowboy in power!  And things got out of hand for him and his clique!
Europe, I suppose, attempted to patch things up and repair what could be repaired.  And the truth is: you cannot correct a mistake with another mistake even more important than the one you are trying to repair.

Val, I was talking about Saddam, not the war going on in Iraq. The tyrant is dead. I hope this more explains it to you Val.

I thought so, Rod.  However, keep in mind that Saddam was Iraq!  Just like for so many people around the globe Bush is America...  I have always been very careful as to not mix the mess this administration has caused with the invasion of Iraq, and, therefore, its messy foreign policy; and the American people in general.
Sometimes, though, this exercice becomes an arduous task, for the Americans have voted for him...t-w-i-c-e!

I’m old enough to remember the Reagan years, when it was to the benefit of the United States to have Saddam Hussein as a friend, until it no longer suited them after their oil supplies in Kuwait were threatened in 1990.

This dangerous man was already removed from power and imprisoned, which is more than certain other *ahem* so-called leaders are today. Sorry, but I find no reason to rejoice about the killing a human being, especially one who was obviously mentally ill. There's no "justice" in that. There is only shame.

Yes, we did vote for him twice, as we have for other presidents who have spent two terms in office.

Is anyone out there aware of the fact that on december 23 2005, Mr. Van Aanraat(Dutch!) was sentenced to 15 years in jail here in Holand? He was convicted for "accomplice to genocide";  having shipped/traded 500 ton's of Thiodiglycol (main ingredient for manufacturing mustard gas) to Irak in 1986, wich was used by Sadam in 1988 on the Kurd's.

This was big news overhere; Mr Van Aanraat is the first dutchman ever to be convicted of such a crime, yet it dissapeared into oblivion. Ra ra ra...the Thiodiglycol was bought in the USA, and possibly our late Prince Bernhard might have had something to do with this.

It's a dirty world, a dirty game and all for €'s and power

Saddams death is great news to anyone who yearns for freedom. Why does the left love dicktators like Saddam and Castro? I have no idea.  Hopefully Saddams death sends a message to the other dicktators that this can happen to them, but I dont think it will.
Of course Europe is gonna be against this. Saddam was bribing the entire continent.
It sure would save a lot of time,money,and lives if the US congress would end the ban on assassinating foreign leaders. I am visualizing a scene out of the "godfather" when Michael has all the bad guys killed at the same time.

Why do you people on the left love your dictators? Let us peruse the list of wonderful democracies the right has supported in the world's march to freedom.
Ferdinand and Emelda Marcos, Somoza, Suharto, The Shah of Iran, Pinochet, House of Saud, Kuwait Royal family, Qaddafi, Musharraf and any other dictator or military junta that has suited our fancy. Where was the outcry from the USA when Saddam was gassing his countrymen? It is hard to take the moral high ground when you are supplying the gas. I guess that middle eastern proverb is right...the enemy of my enemy is my friend. I wonder if we will remember that as we deal with the newest fundamental Islamic state in the region...Iraq?

Saddam was bribing first and foremost the U.S.A.!  Get real, Jack!  Dach is spot on with his replies to you.

Jack, France lost most of their contracts with Iraq when Saddam was removed from power. France didn't care about the Iraqi people, it was the money from Saddam they were worried about.

Where was the outcry from the USA when Saddam was gassing his countrymen?
Actually congressional Democrats had to force Reagan's State Dept. to issue a condemnation when Saddam gassed the Kurds, and it was tepid at best.  At first they tried to blame it on the Iranians.  What do you expect when Saint Ronnie sold them all the chemicals?

So, (again!), what WERE you saying Jack?
