Saddam's Trial

By Gwynne Dyer

If they had taken Adolf Hitler alive in 1945, they would certainly
have put him on trial. But what if they had ignored Hitler's
responsibility for starting the Second World War and his murder of six
million Jews, and simply put him on trial for torturing and executing a
couple of hundred people whom he suspected of involvement in the July 1944
plot to kill him? You would find that bizarre, would you not?

Well, Saddam Hussein's trial starts on 19 October, and that is the
sort of charge that the Iraqi government and its American supervisors have
chosen. The former Iraqi dictator is not being tried for invading Iran in
1980 and causing hundreds of thousands of deaths, nor for using poison gas
on Iranian troops and on rebellious Kurds in Iraq itself (notably at
Halabja in 1988, when at least 5,000 Iraqi Kurd civilians died), nor for
invading Kuwait in 1990, nor for slaughtering tens of thousands of Iraqi
Shias in the course of putting down the revolt that followed his defeat in
that war.

He is only being tried for the deaths of 143 people from the mainly
Shia town of Dujail, north of Baghdad, after an assassination attempt
against him during a visit to that town in July, 1982. It is a very
peculiar choice, and the explanation offered by one of the five judges on
the Iraqi Special Tribunal -- "The Dujail case is the easiest to put
together as far as evidence-gathering and preparation is concerned,
(because) there are documents that have been seized and verified concerning
the case" -- doesn't hold water.

Saddam's trial a hoax? Obviously not. Is it being run the way it should be? Probably not.

I wish I spoke Arabic. I would love to be able to listen to what he/they are actually saying without having to rely on someone else's interpretation. I don't trust western coverage of it so much. (Not that I have more faith in the al jezeeras out there.)

Whazzup Infinite! Its good to see you again.

Through the majic of editing, it's amazing how one can make a filmed situation appear. Manipulation. An art, well to learn. If you're in Signal anyway.
