Saddam is sentenced to hang. Justice has been served by the Iraqi people. Stop and think for just a little bit. The Iraqi people have voted in 3 free elections with a turnout that puts the US to shame. There is a government that is elected - not selected or self appointed. There is a judicial system that works. How can anyone call that a failure?
Oh but you know how the Left thinks. It's not about Saddam Hussein - it's about President Bush and the evil USA. While a murderous dictator has been sentenced in a court of law, the Left can't let go of their BDS to see what an incredible step of progress this is for the people of Iraq.
Courtesy of DU - more reasons that we can't let the Dems take control of Congress...
Crimes against humanity. Wow. It's hard to tell the bad guys from the good guys these days, when you're basing your decisions on the casualty lists.
Saddam deserves life in prison same as George W. Bush and Richard Cheney.
Maybe we need Iraqis justice here?
Saddam was defending his people from, and retaliating against the people that bush just put into power
They're fighting to defend their own honor.
The crimes against humanity of George W. Bush FAR surpass those of Saddam . . .and, unlike Saddam, he's still perpetrating them . . . as president of the most powerful nation on Earth . . . and it looks like he's planning for more . . .I am against the death penalty for anyone . . . but if Saddam deserves to be detained and punished, George Bush deserves it a hundred times more .
I totally agree, bush has killed more people than Saddam did. I was expecting Saddam would get the death penalty, but for some reason it saddens me. Must be depressed hearing nothing but death all the time. I just don't know.
I am surprised they want to execute him. His modus operandi of "willful killing, deportation or forcible transfer of population; imprisonment or other severe deprivation of physical liberty in violation of fundamental norms of law; torture; enforced disappearance of persons, and other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering; or serious injury to the body or to the mental or physical health"would seem to fit in nicely with post invasion Iraq.
The US has killed more Iraqis in 3 years than Saddam did in 25. If you want real justice, Bush and Cheney should follow Saddam to the gallows.
If it's good for America - it's bad for the Libs. And they want to control the Congress? Our country deserves so much better than that.
