This ought to be interesting.

Trying to give Americans something extra to celebrate for ringing in the New Year?  

Actually, MSNBC is saying within the next 48 hours, not 36.

Why would he be prosecuted there? He was charged with killing Iraqi citizens. It should have been tried in Iraq.

saying the former dictator should enjoy protection from his enemies as a "prisoner of war."

ENJOY? why should a man that has put an end to so many peoples enjoyment of life be able to enjoy it himself.



saying capital punishment goes against the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.

I so want to say something to this, but this isn't the thread to say it in.



I find this funny how we don't think twice about going into Iraq and killing tons of innocent people (including children) yet here we are faced with a man that has done countless wrong things and we are questioning whether its right to kill him. (yet as I wrote that I thought to myself... if we are to kill him for killing innocents, what should we do about our selves here in the USA?)

I wonder who will be next to turn on America, I mean it seems to be people that use to friends with America you must not forget US protege Saddam Hussein or one-time CIA trainee Osama bin Laden.

The US Empire has dug a hole and we keep digging it deeper. Look at what happened to the Roman empire, for instance. They spend to much money they didn't have, they had non Romans ruling it towards the end of their existence, most importantly is the fact that they over extended their empire way to much. They had all their forces out trying to either battle other countries or/and make other cultures follow in their believes and ways of living. while this was happening the Roman empires heart (Rome itself) was left in a weak state. This was a perfect time for Nomad groups and Barbarians to come in and attack... all of this (plus some) lead to the fall of the Roman empire. Now compare this to the US empire. seeing any similarities.

sorry about going off on a bit of a rant, but it feels good to have said that.  Smile

I don't want to say more as I will get worked up and go off on a rant to one of my parents about this (hehehe, i guess I "rant" about politics and the world to much)

note: I am also a US citizen, I have dual citizenship, thats why it says New Zealand for my country.

I'm not debating that, my friend. I'm debating the fact that this Iraqi government has every right to try and execute a criminal under their own laws. In this case, Baghdad, not The Hague, was the proper place to try Saddam Hussein.

Nice try to change the subject, thought. Save it for another time.

Very true. Don't think anything will change...actually the killings and the bombings might actually increase. Saddam still has a lot of supporters, and they're vowing to increase their attacks etc..so yeah bye bye Saddam, but there won't be any decrease in the violence.

I have to disagreed with you, since it was the Americans that removed him from power and not the Iraq people, and the puppet government of Iraq is the one that prosecuted him. The Hague would have been the proper venue, to allow for an unbiased trial.  twocents

First, we don't need this Kangaroo Court in The Hague sticking its nose into the business of trials in other nations'. Other nations are perfectly capable of handling their own trials.

Secondly, he's been charged with killing his own people. Why should that be tried in another nation, American invasion or not? It's an Iraqi affair, whether some internationalists like that or not. Let Iraq handle it. Even if Saddam was being tried, say, for killing Iranians, to me, he should then be tried in Iran, not The Hague.

The Hague court, to me, has absolutely no jurisdiction over anyone, and should be duly ignored by any nation with any national pride, or any interest in its own national soverignty.

i just love this from the guardian newspaper...
http://www.guardian.co.uk/Iraq/Story/0,,1979662,00.html

"Mr Bush had summoned his advisers to his ranch in Crawford, Texas - including Mr Cheney - yesterday to try to chart a new strategy for the war. The secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice; the defence secretary, Robert Gates; the national security adviser, Stephen Hadley; and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, General Peter Pace, also attended the meeting.

Mr Bush is expected to outline that plan in a speech early in the new year, amid speculation that he intends to send more troops to Iraq. He did not outline his intentions yesterday, saying only: "We're making good progress in coming up with a plan."

all this chimp ever does is talk..and most of it's shit and the same old crap that comes from his mouth, i can't wait to see the new plan for Iraq... Big grin

yeah...that's all well and good but how many innocent people are now going to die because of this? hanging him WON'T solve any of the problems facing Iraq, more then likely amplify them 10 fold. When he's dead and burried the only people left to take responsibility for their actions and the cycle of violence are George Bush, Don Dumsfeld & Dick Cheney.
