Iraqi women to hang for acts of resistance

Published Feb 17, 2007 7:56 AM
At a time when U.S. occupation troops and puppet Iraqi troops have committed hundreds of thousands of murders of Iraqi civilians, three women are being executed for their alleged role in the armed resistance. The Supreme Iraqi Criminal Court has sentenced the women to death by hanging, with the executions set for March 3 in Baghdad.
According to attorney Walid Hayali of the Iraqi Lawyers Union, 31-year-old Wassan Talib has been charged with the killing of five police officers in an attack on the police; 25-year-old Zainab Fadhil was charged for an attack on a joint patrol of the Iraqi and U.S. armies in Baghdad; and 26-year-old Liqa Muhammad was charged with the killing of an official in the Green Zone in the course of a kidnapping.
The attorney points out that the women were denied legal counsel before and during the trial, and therefore there was no lawyer present to appeal the convictions.
Muhammad is still nursing a child she recently gave birth to in prison. Talib has a 3-year-old daughter with her in the prison.
You talk misstreating prisoners of war!!!!!!! Talk about throwing out the geneva conventions!!!!!!

The fact of the matter is justice whilst American troops and others and their Iraqi puppets go around mudering people left right and centre people who do not agree with these actions are fighting back do you understnd that concept.
Or to put in terms that those of you who cannot understand if the US was invaded and the invaders installed a puppet regime in which some of your fellow Americans supported would you fight this system especially if they were killing your loved ones. Would you allow the invaders and the treasonable Americans to kill you, no you would not you would fight them if you had any balls. If these women hang then you should hang American troops and those who support them for killing inocent civillians by the tens of thousands.
Anyone who sides with the the US in Iraq are collaborators just as much as those peoples who collaborated with the Germans in ww1 and 2. And it must be nice for those who sit in nice safe comfy countries to decide who lives and who dies. Its rich that those who prosecute wars but have never suffered from them are quick to judge those who are fighting for their very existence.

Listen to you all?
This lady fought for her home, her family and her country, fighting the occupiers who invaded her land based on LIES...
and you believe its right to HANG her , because she defended her home?
All this does is show the world, we really are a brutal occupying force.
You think this is going to WIN hearts and minds? Or bring the resistance to cease fighting?
Your turning into savages........ and whats worse is you sit here and praise it from your loungeroom....
What would you feel, if you saw your wife being hung, bceause she fought the people who invaded and occupied America?

Here is a thought for all those who think this is the right course of action. Do the US/UK soldiers who have killed innocents get hanged for it? Or are they allowed to live?
