Tell me this, would you kill a wild animal that is kept in a zoo because it might break loose and kill a human? Surely you would only tighten the security.


Well if the Zoo was in the current state that Iraq is you would have two options.
Move the animals in question or put them down. You couldnt take the risk that the likes of a lion could slip thou a hole in the fence.
Do you really want to find out if your wrong ?




Yeah, we had better kill him. God forbid he gets assassinated!


The problem is if Saddam was assassinated it would help to undermine the Iraqi governments credibility in the eyes of the local population. I doubt that anyone would feel sorry for Saddam if he was assassinated.

A Fatwa has been issued about Saddams verdict now.

Basically it says; Forget Saddam. Leave his fate to Allah. We've got us some Americans to kill. lalalalalalala.

At least thats the way I read it.

Surprising...an Israeli Canadian Pseudonym site (Like MEMRI,CAMERA,DEBKA). How its always convenient of them to constantly report Muslim wrongdoings that are a supposed threat to Americans. Its a shame they can't figure out where their soldiers are but they always seem to know what Muslims are up to.I still can't understand how people can't see right through these attempts at constantly playing us off towards the muslims. I would trust a site like this like I would any other hate site...with a Deer sized lick of salt.

I feel happy about the verdict and pity to Saddam at the same time.

and now, justice is in the hands of Saddam's victims. But i don't think killing him would satisfy this peace-hungry world. it would be better to make him suffer inside a cell for a very long time.

and also i've read from a local newspaper here that Saddam urged his supporters not to take revenge on Iraq's invaders. now, i see a martyr in the making.

sad that we will make this man a maryter...
he should be locked up in a cage for all the world to see for the rest of his days

no instead we will kill him and make him a maryter

when will people learn, killing people does not stop their message and after they're dead you can not use them to call off their attack dogs

same thing happened with a jewish guy about 2 thousand years ago
millions have died in his name since...


not trying to equate sadam with jesus, but when the jews killed him, his followers only grew in numbers.
what do you think will happen when we kill sadam?

I still wonder what exactly they are trying him for? The invasion and subsequent violence has killed many more Iraqis than Saddam did. As for the killing of those who attempted to oust him, what would our own governments have done faced with armed insurrection and a direct threat to their power? Would they have just sent in the police to fire rubber bullets and CS gas or would they send in the army to quell a rebellion?
When you look at it logically, he's no more guilty than our own leaders, who have blood on their hands too, lots of it.

He tortured and killed Iraqi people, well so have our guys, government sanctioned no less. He killed those who opposed his rule, well so are our folks, every day since the invasion. I see no real difference here. He'd actually spent a lot of money in the 70's and 80's making Iraq one of the most westernised of the ME countries, yet we bombed it all to pieces and then, here's the good bit for the corporate chaps, charge them (and the US and UK taxpayers) to rebuild it all again. The big corporations with their no-bid contracts are laughing all the way to the bank, despite the death and misery involved. But hey, they're just a bunch of Arabs right?

Before anyone starts flinging the "terrorist lover" or "Saddam apologist" names about, I'd like to make it clear I have no love for this deranged dictator. However, he was OUR dictator when it suited OUR leaders, so they are to blame as much as Saddam for the deaths of Iraqis during his rule and so should be tried as well.

The outcome of this Kangaroo court was inevitable, the timing of the sentence was impeccable (well, it was actually timed to come before the mid terms, no surprise there)



"You have voted Britguy way abovetopsecret", yep you got my vote as I agree with everything you just said.

I have always thought that it was wrong for our country to go in and de-thrown Saddam when we're the one's that had helped him get to where he was in the first place when our Gov't had "use" for this man

Exactly what I was thinking . Saddam = Dictator, Bush/Cheney = Dictators .......... no difference between them in my eyes. They both use their armed-forces to get what they want no matter what the cost/life-lost would be in the end.

If people think that by killing Saddam will lessen the fighting and killing of our troops over there, I think they are just fooling theirselves and if our citizens of the US are going to be crazy enough to let this announcement lull them into thinking things are going to get better, that the Bush and the Republicans are doing a great job running our country,.......... well all I can say is "for shame" for letting this tactic sway your judgement come Nov.7,06.

I beleive the best way for Saddam to be handled is to keep him alive and imprisoned, this way the people of the Holy Land will see what happens to someone that commits terrible crimes against humanity, even if that person is their president.

I guess what I'm trying to say is "Two wrongs don't make it right", and we sure are not in the "right" by a long shot,... far from it.

Saddam should have been tried in the Hague, as Milosevic was. But just think of the can of worms that would have opened up with his defence team being able to present items in open session, with no direction or control from the US.
I am sure he could have brought up a lot of issues that would be very damaging to the US and UK in open court.
His farce of a trial and sentencing were nothing more than a showpiece to try and add a bit of credibility to the invasion, but has failed miserably.

All those people on these boards applauding his death sentence need to consider just who put him in power and kept him there, while he was useful, and who showed no concern regarding his brutality. Those people in our own governments, past and present, have a lot to answer for and should be held accountable.

Good Call.

Let's see who was behind Saddam once upon a time in a land far, far away;

WARNING - THIS FLASHBACK MIGHT BE CONSIDERED LIBERAL!




US helped as Saddam plotted chemical attacks, report says

The US conducted a covert military campaign to help Iraq during its war with Iran, despite knowing that Baghdad intended to use chemical weapons in a number of battles, according to a report in the New York Times.


Rumsfeld 'offered help to Saddam'

Declassified papers leave the White House hawk exposed over his role during the Iran-Iraq war.

The Reagan administration and its special Middle East envoy, Donald Rumsfeld, did little to stop Iraq developing weapons of mass destruction in the 1980s, even though they knew Saddam Hussein was using chemical weapons "almost daily" against Iran, it was reported yesterday.


Saddam Could Call CIA in His Defence

Evidence offered by a top CIA man could confirm the testimony given by Saddam Hussein at the opening of his trial in Baghdad Thursday that he knew of the Halabja massacre only from the newspapers.

A report prepared by the top CIA official handling the matter says Saddam Hussein was not responsible for the massacre, and indicates that it was the work of Iranians. Further, the Scott inquiry on the role of the British government has gathered evidence that following the massacre the United States in fact armed Saddam Hussein to counter the Iranians chemicals for chemicals.


Saddam Silenced For Fingering US In Iraq Bombings

After the murder of Slobo Milosevic prevented the true Butchers of Serbia, Wes Clark and Bill Clinton, from being brought to justice, on the very first day of Saddam Hussein's testimony the judge turned off his microphone and ordered all media to leave following Saddam's comments that the civil war in Iraq is being deliberately fueled by the US.

Over the past few weeks we have highlighted Israeli and US foreign policy documents that actually encourage not deter the break out of civil war in Iraq. Decades old blueprints document how inter-Arab conflict would be beneficial to the Neo-Cons, initiating ethnic cleansing in Iraq and drawing in Iran and Syria to provide a pretext to expand the war.


How the CIA found and groomed Saddam

US forces may now be searching high and low for Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein but in the past he was seen by US intelligence as a bulwark of anti-communism, reports UPI.

American intelligence operatives used him as their instrument for more than 40 years, according to former US intelligence officials and diplomats.

UPI interviewed almost a dozen former US diplomats, British scholars and former US intelligence officials to piece together the following account. The CIA declined to comment.

So - will we ever see those Masters of Puppets on Trial?

Will we ever see them in the Court?

Why was Saddam judged in Baghdad and NOT in International Criminal Court in Hague - like Slobodan Milosevic was?

Is it a FAIR Trial?

Well if it is a Fair Trial - how come THREE of his Lawyers were Assassianted - and nobody has a problem with that?

And during the Trial his original judge was REPLACED?

Fair Trial ey?

If you belive in Santa!

Thank You my Friend!


Your Words are Greatly Apprechiated!

Now let's move on;


Saddam Verdict Date "Rigged" for Bush

Saddam Hussein's defence team has urged a delay of his possible death sentence and said the ousted Iraqi leader believed today's expected verdict was timed to boost President George Bush before US mid-term elections.

Saddam's lawyer Khalil al-Dulaimi repeated warnings that a death sentence against his client - which would come before Tuesday's US Congressional elections at a time when Bush faces mounting criticism over the Iraq war - would plunge the region into wider bloodshed.

"This court is a creature of the US military occupation, and the Iraqi court is just a tool and rubber stamp of the invaders," insisted Dulaimi.

"The trial of the president should not proceed this way in a climate of mounting political pressure for a quick conviction that demolishes the trial's impartiality," he said.

The credibility of the trial had been tarnished by delays, the murder of defence counsel, courtroom chaos and political interference and court bias against the defence, he added.

"During all these months, the court has deliberately sought to limit our access and ability to defend the president ... this means that justice has not been done," he said..

Midterm Elections - HERE COMES DA BUSH!

ALL HAIL THE GREAT LIBERATOR!

And the DECIDER! (ofcourse!)

And let's quickly forget what kind of a Comedy this Court really was...

Good for Saddam, that he did not own any WMD's!

Whoa - that would mean a Fate Worse Then Death!

Thanks Souljah for putting this in proper prespective. The reality is we're hypocrites and the world sees that. For some reason, some believe that we are the deciders and make up our rules as we tear the world apart, and we have THE RIGHT to do this.

This is all going to come home to haunt us- that's guaranteed.

Just beacuase I don't know how to communicate effectively with a wannabe terrorist doesn't mean that it can't be done. I think the education these people need would involve very little algebra.

You claimed you can't negotiate without extreme prejudice. I think you can only negotiate if you're sympathetic to the needs of the people your negotiating with, or else you aren't negotiating, you'd just be commanding. Do you understand the term extreme prejudice? If you felt extreme prejudice towards another group of people I think any reasonable person would understand why I would use the term Nazi, it wasn't personal, it was directed to the comments you posted. So if you don't like it be more careful how you phrase your comments.

That is easy, it's all about timing in the U.S. "elections" , Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki last minute decision to replace the Iraqi judge is influenced by U.S. aid and Bush .

www.iht.com...


WASHINGTON President George W. Bush sought to repair tensions with Iraq's prime minister and the White House asserted that Nouri al-Maliki is not "America's man in Iraq" but a sovereign leader whom the U.S. is aiding.


For 50 minutes on Saturday, Bush and al-Maliki talked by video conference to find common ground. This was Published: October 28, 2006

I wonder what they talked about


that should be enough proof .......................

You Mean Judaism, Right?

The only thing this "Hanging" is good for, is Midterm Elections in the USA.

If you did not notice, Iraq is a Chaotic State, without any law so far.

But hey! - they get to see their former leader Hanging!

AWESOME!

Well I still can't sympathize with anyone who would strap a bomb to themselves, no matter what cause they feel justifies it. If thinking they should be thrown out of the genetic pool makes me a Nazi, then I suppose I am. Cause honestly I don't care if they can be reformed or educated, that sort of instability will resurface elsewhere at a later date.

So its wrong for them to blow themselves up for whatever reasons they express, but it's ok for you to destroy them even if they could be reformed! If your type of killing spree was carried out you'd have ten times more terrorists.

What makes me wrong if I want you taken out of the gene pool because your instability could cause you to attack someone? If you can answer that then you've proved your above statement to be a load of tosh.

Do other people agree with MasterJedi?

You make it sound like no one in the world has ever tried to come up with a way to negotiate with terrorists. That you are the first or only person that has even thought of doing that instead of fighting back against them.

If true, it's hard to imagine a more totally incorrect assumption your part.

No, it's more like the fearful, appeasement types of the world think that negotiators should be sent in to talk with these murderous thugs, however, they somehow never bring themselves to volunteer to do the work.

I obviously don't think I'm the first person to think of this... however don't you think 'terrorists' should negotiate peacefuly rather than demanding their desires with the threat of violence. We can't have things both ways. We can't say people shouldn't use violence as a means to an end but then use it when it suits our needs.

One half of me agrees with you in the sense that the world isn't black and white and there are people, namely muderers, peadophiles and rapists, who don't care about punishment and just want to fulfill there desires, leaving us with no alternative than to fight fire with fire.

The other half remembers that we need to set examples, and that your argument is a slippery slope to oppressing all people who speak out. Maybe these 'murderous thugs' wouldn't be so murderous if they had clear avenues for questioning the way the world is, and also if there were tighter restrictions on arms sales.

This is such a big issue I can't hope to go into the intricacies involved in the detail it deserves and this is a thread for a completely different topic so I'll stop talking about it in here.

But tell me, do you agree with MasterJedi that people who don't conform to our way of life should be "removed from the gene pool"?
