The reason why Saddam was executed is due to these facts.
The most important reason.
If Saddam's trial was brought forth to the World Courts in the Netherlands, The United States could have became embroiled in some very deep
happenings. Saddam would have started talking, as in naming names, as to who gave him the technology to build the WMDs. Some of those names would be
current and former members of Dubya's Cabinet
The United States supported Iraq during their war with our, as in then, enemy Iran.
The United States also helped Saddam by giving him the technology to produce WMDs.
Some of those involved with the dealings between the United States and Iraq have been cabinet members, i. e. Rumsfeld, of the current Bush
Not only that, but the CIA had a hand in bringing the Ba'ath Party into power back in the 1960s. This was when Saddam was a young member and the
party was in the opposition. Let's fast foward to the late 1970s, the Ten Year War between Iraq and Iran is just starting to heat itself up. Iran,
with backing from the Soviets along with some European nations, and some companies here in the United States, have begun to assemble a massive army
that would go up against Iraq in the war. Saddam is left with a crossroads. Do I admit defeat to the Iranians or do I go in and kick their hides?
Saddam chose the latter of the possibility and it cost both Iran and Iraq at least a million lives, billions of dollars in damage to infrastructure.
Iran is obviously the superior foe in this conflict due to backing from the Soviets and others. That is where we come in. Saddam sees that we could be
a mighty ally and seeks our help. That is when Saddam calls up some people over here in the states and asks if he can buy some technology from the
defense contractors who supply the United States Military, i. e. Rockwell, Northrup Grumman, etc, to see if they will help him with the war.
Now fast foward all the way to 2002 and early 2003 prior to the invasion.
Saddam, knowing that Shrub is about to invade, decides to have the WMDs that were already stockpiled and completed moved out of the country. The WMDs
were shipped out by trucks during the nighttime. That way, it would have been harder on Coalition Forces to spot the weapons being transported.
Originally, it was thought that the WMDs were shipped over the border to only Jordan. Yes, United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection
Commission members did find engine parts to the banned SA2 rockets that were built in Iraq in Jordan that were being sold as 'scrap'. That is not
nesecarrily true however, this is because officials in the Netherlands found a similar engine sitting at the Port of Rotterdam. There are, supposedly,
dozens of SA2 rocket engines that are unaccounted for that have been transported out of Iraq.
To go along with this even though the 'mainstream' media pushed this under the rug.
The Kingdom of Jordan seized approximately twenty tons of chemical and biological weapons while foiling an "Al-Qaeda" plot to kill 80,000 people
with these agents. The stockpile that was uncovered was found to have had seventy different kinds of chemical agents. At least two of the chemical
agents included were the VX and Sarin nerve gas that had been developed during World War II by the Nazis. According to Jordan's King Abdallah
these poisons came from Syria – but experts say Syria only has the capacity to produce small amounts of these weapons, not the 20 tons
Then if Syria supposedly does not have the capabilities to produce the large amounts of these agents, then that can mean only one thing and one thing
only. These seized weapons most certainly had to have came from Iraq. Whether it was Saddam or one of his henchmen that ordered the shipments, we
will, unfortunately, never be able to know this now due to Saddam's execution. As for what part of Syria those weapons were brought in from, all we
have to do is to look in a valley region of Syria.
