This is a joke. And like the opening poster already mentioned. Now it'll become really messy in Iraq for a long time. Still many people, especially
the ones I seen on tv and in this thread giving commentary know little to nothing and like to show it off as well.
There is such a long history involved here and no one even thinks about the future. But allow me to give a small summary, which will be incomplete
since there is more to it then meets the eye.
Sadam started of as a recruit for the Iraq army and moved his way up through the ranks. He was young and idealistic like all young people. Most people
who don't agree with their country's policy do nothing about it, but he did. He took control, but soon after it got to his head. Every threat to
"his" country would be waged war upon and people who opposed him would be neutralised. Many deaths are upon Sadam's head.
As with all country's in which this happens there will be people who will rebel. Take Osama Bin Laden, the most will known of all those little
rebelliously factions, who started to oppose Sadam During the 70's. There were no problems, just local affairs which were logical follow ups. A group
of people who rebelled against the reigning dictator. Unfortunately USA saw this as an opportunity to make money and sold weapons to Iraq and Sadam.
The Netherlands, where I'm from, sold Nuclair junk.
What I find odd is that the USA did that after years of waging war against
Iraq during the 70's.
If people were truly as idealistic as some idiots here make it out to be Sadam would've never even gotten the stuff needed to kill. There are more
people and countries at fault here which are conveniently left out.
Well Bin Laden, the rebel that he is, fought for the people and himself against Sadam. Seeing the support Sadam got from the USA and such made Bin
Laden see that there were other enemies to the freedom of Iraqi people. The USA got involved where they shouldn't have since it was a local affair.
How convenient that Bush was asleep during the execution with the message that America didn't want to get on the foreground since it is an Iraq
affair. Well 30+ years to late in order to say that #head.
So to give a warning Osama attacked an oil tanker during the early '80's. The USA didn't get the hint so Osama placed a van with explosives in the
garage of the WTC. The saying is that not even a donkey hits the same stone twice. Well the USA is dumber then a donkey since Osama had to sent a 3rd
hint which caused the collapse of the WTC in 2001. In all cases Osama wasn't planning to cause as much destruction as possible else he would've hit
more populated areas over and over again.
During the 80's Sadam grew more and more old and senile. He no longer showed any of his old self. No countries were being attacked any more. Osama
had Sadam against the ropes. Even the guards who overlooked Sadam while he spend his days in prison said that Sadam was quite a nice guy who reminded
them of their grandpa. Sadam simply wasn't who he used to be. Since Osama was pounding on Sadam, Sadam couldn't do as much as he wanted to do anyway
though. Sadam even got caught by accident. For the people who lived, and still live there, it was hell since it was a constant battle zone between 2
factions with some minor rebel groups running in the way.
After the WTC attack the american propaganda machine started working over time. A local rebel suddenly was called an international terrorist. Bush
started the war against terrorism while there was no terrorism to begin with. After a decade or 2 of quietness the USA hit the bee hive with a stick
again and got bitten. Then they jump into the role of victims while they are the cause of all of the international # going on. And doing so the USA
dragged the rest of the western world into this mess as well. Something local something grew to international proportions which could've been avoided
quite easily if people had even half a braincell to think. And to cover up their own incompetence they fed lies to soldiers to give them a fake
patriotic feel of doing "good", else there wouldn't even been an army to go to Iraq.
I found it so damn funny that a soldier shot down an airplane thinking it was Iraqian while it was their own. Iraq didn't even have airplance back
then moron. It does show the intelligence of the average GI Joe which makes it a lot easier to see how easily they got indoctrinated in order to fight
for a false/flawed cause.
Thinking they are so damn zealous and righteous assuming they can just barge in and do as they please. This includes forcing themselves and their
ideals upon others under the banner of "democracy" and "aiding people to give a better future". The way of the west isn't the way of the
middle-east. Different part of the world, different life conditions, different beliefs. Forcing something on someone which they don't support will
only cause more trouble for the people living there.
But no the American government rather gets a hand into the future Iraqian government so that they can indirectly get a hand in on the oil. If they
were really smart they'd spend the money wasted on the war to simply buy Iraq. Build muslim temples where american-muslim teachings would be spread
and a little american flag next to the door to indoctrinate the people more subtlety then they have been doing now.
But now the real # begins. Sadam kept things in check. With him gone now there will be no one to run the country. Every aspirant "leader" will fight
among themselves, more dividing of people, wasting of resources, in short massive chaos that you can spot from a mile away. Killing/death sentence of
Sadam will even make him a martyr to some of the people. That very act got rid of the man, but still left a vacuum that needs to be filled. A vacuum
that someone else in the future will fill and be lived by that vacuum doing similar acts as Sadam did. Sadam, leader of Iran, South Korea, Hitler,
Bush...all men at the top of their countries killing others. It's like how the leaders of tribes fought 4000 years ago and animals even before that.
The world sure has grown more mature
But with Sadam being killed now I wonder when Bush will be killed for all the war crimes he has on his head.
For the people in Iraq I'd rather seen Sadam in the position he was until he died. Then a more gradual transition towards a new leader and
governmental set-up could be made. Now things are rushed and forced and will not work causing more problems.
Death Sentence is something I'm against. It is pointless and used only by idiots who are lead to much by their emotions and don't think about the
future and the effects. Idiocy to the max. Making people spend time in a small cell, isolated from others, will cause them to start thinking. That is
when guilt and such will grow in the mind of the criminal causing a lot of agony and pain. Mental wounds that come from self confrontation and
reflection, mental wounds that heal not as easily as physical wounds. Now he's dead and nothing will come to him. But if you belief in hell and such
catholic indoctrination then those people can find "relief" in that.
It is also narrow minded and hypocritical to say it is not inhumane to kill. But suddenly it is ok to stoop down his level and kill him. What an
example of humane behavior you are then. But if you can live and sleep calmly while having taken a live (in)directly...
