News suggests at the moment with comments from donald rumsfeld supporting the idea that Saddam be granted immunity from prosecution if he comes out of power. Given his vast abuses of human rights is it right that he be given this oppurtunity? would OBL be given that chance if he "revealed" where his terrorist network is hidden around the world. I`m not supporting war but this would seem to be EXTREMELY wrong, why should he get away with the crimes he has commited, why should anyone who has commited the outrageous abuses of human rights like Saddam and OBL be given the chance???


news.bbc.co.uk...

comment from Mr Rumsfeld, "He added however: "But if to avoid a war, I personally would recommend that some provision be made so that the senior leadership in that country and their families could be provided haven in some other country, and I think that that would be a fair trade to avoid a war."

I think he should be assassinated.

In the news they've been saying the US is offering Sadam immunity. How does the US have jurisdiction to offer immunity for prosecution for war crimes / genocide?

The US has already refused to allow it's own forces to be covered by the international court and now it's offering immunity to foreign nationals.

Smoke him out with this ploy, then grab him later.

As for the US not wanting troops under the World Court...we don't want our troops working under the UN and some foreign commander, then get some trumped up charges on our troops by countries that dislike us. The UN makes a mistake during a police action and then we find our UN troops at the World Court on BS charges.

I hope he does n`t make it out alive either, get rid of him and the worlds a better place. Problem is that this kind of talk sends out the wrong mesage to the generals and ministers who support tyrrants like saddam and who are no mean abusers of human rights themselves, "give us your leader and your free" ,people like saddam are a focal point for the media there are plenty of others involved in these organisations who should be brought to justice.
