Saddam Executed

Standard

The execution of Saddam Hussein brings a bloody and brutal close to an ugly chapter of Iraqi history.  His justified execution for crimes against humanity was well deserved and a convenient distraction from the crimes against humanity he committed in collusion with the United States.  Make no mistake, his regime was propped up for decades by the U.S. and we aided his regime in war with Iran.  The United States government provided ample stockpiles of biological and chemical weapons used to kill Iranian and Iraqi civilians that opposed Saddam’s regime or fought against it in war.  That blood is still on the hands of George H.W. Bush and his son, the ignorant patrician.  Saddam’s execution does nothing to wipe the blood off of their hands.

    I think we – the US – were damned if we did, and damed if we didn’t(in reference to the hanging). We should have sent him to the Haigue.

    Iraq is in the middle of a Civil War. Sunni vs. Shia. It’s payback time, and there the US is – in the middle.

    Anyone who read history should have known that Iraq was the Arab Equivalent of Yugoslavia, and Saddam was the Arab Tito.

    I knew this, and I have no PhD or work for the government in any capacity. …so those who WERE paid to know, didn’t know?

    We need to get the hell out of there, and leave them to their bloodbath.

    And yes, it will be all our fault. We – the USA – will have that blood on our hands for years to come.

    Used to the ‘good old days’, that Arab radicals just could justifiably hate us because of the Israel/Palestine situation.

    Iraq created a whole other generation of enemies for us…sigh.

    THIS is George W. Bush’s foreign affairs legacy to our children.

  2. Rikyrah,

    This war, like all wars is a resource war for control of the most strategic resource on the planet, oil. The Iraqi oil reserves are the second largest in the world and they will only be exploited by us and whatever compliant regime is rubberstamped by the UK and the US.
    It doesn’t matter much to the Anglo/American policymakers how many must die to make the exploitation of resources possible. It will be done.
