The Verdict Is In!

The trial of Saddam Hussein is over, and the court has spoken. Saddam has been found guilty of crimes against humanity. He and six of his officials were convicted of the 1982 murders of 148 Shiites.

*It should be noted that Saddam murdered these Shiites using the sarin and nerve gas which, according to the mainstream media, he never possessed.

Saddam has also been given his sentence. What does the legal system do to a man who is guilty of murdering his own people? What is justice for a man who used his tyrannical rule to commit genocide and fill mass, unmarked graves? If it were an American court, he probably would have gotten probation. Thankfully, justice has been served.

Saddam Hussein has been sentenced to death by hanging.

By any and all measures, this is justice. Good has won this battle over evil.

But, how does the left feel about the verdict? I am sure that a lot of liberals who still recognize Saddam as a brutal, genocidal tyrant will praise the court's decision. They may not agree with every aspect of the Iraq War, but they can see evil for what it is.

However, there is another segment of the Liberal voting base that can only be described as "unhinged." These are the anti-capitalist, blame-America-first, 9/11-was-an-inside-job, there-is-no-such-thing-as-a-moral-absolute, kooks.

Most days, you can find them hanging out at websites like or Well, over at the Huffington Post, they decided to chime in on the Saddam verdict. Here is how they see it:

Saddam is a far better man than George W. Bush ever thought about being.

Had this been an honest, fair, legal trial by other than a puppet court of a puppet government established by the Bush administration, Saddam may still have been found guilty, but sentenced with him would have been Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Perle, Wolfowitz, Feith, Rice, had the trial truly been concerned with atrocities committed against Iraqis.

The number of innocents massacred by the neo-con zionist regime directing the Bush administration dwarfs those attributed to Saddam, and since the USA is still, though tenuously, a democracy, all US citizens bear an ultimate responsibility for these atrocities.

Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice and many others need to be brought to account for their crimes against humanity.
The only appropriate punishment would be a public hanging.

If Bush was hung side by side with Saddam it would certainly help the cause of a better Iraq. Add Cheney and Rumsfeld and that would placate everyone.

One thing about Saddam he is more of man than the other god damn murdering piece of shit, Bush.

Can you see Bush telling the judge he wants a firing squad instead of hanging?

I was going to censor the profanity. But, I decided that their viciousness should be seen in its true form.
