12/15/2003: Criminally Absurd
Saddam Hussein at the vet.
If I felt like it, I could come up with at least 10 reasons why I dislike the Bush, Jr. Administration, but there are a lot of other people doing it anyway. But considering that the United States government created Saddam Hussein, at least George W. Bush did the right thing and took him down. I think it is a great day for the Iraqi people. I was happy to see people in Baghdad wave their communist flags, their red flags, green flags, and whatever other flags they want to. The Iraq government should put him on trial and convict him. Why turn him over to the UN or the World Court? Slobodan Milosevic is on trial there right now and he consistently denies that they have a right to try him, making them look like a bunch of impotent fools.
The UN totally left the Iraqi people out to dry after the Gulf War ended. The sanctions continued, and the parasites that benefitted from Saddam's patronage lived in opulence making their profit off the suffering of the average people. The Bush, Sr. administration created an international coalition to get Saddam out of Iraq, but they couldn't bring themselves to remove him from power, and let him continue to get away with his bad behavior. The US and the UN were like parents who refused to spank their child that they created, and let Saddam and his government get totally out of control. Isn't it more important that the people of Iraq put their former leader on trial in their own way, to let them carry out their own brand of justice? Let Iraq be its own soverign nation. What, don't you trust them to act responsibly? What about West Germany, Japan, South Korea? We need to help Iraq back on their feet and hope that they will do the right thing.
