Bush or Sadaam: Who Should Stand Trial?

The much anticipated, long awaited, spectacular “Trial of Sadaam Hussein” will begin in a few weeks. This trial will no doubt have a catchy title with a lively colorful collage of network graphics showing Sadaam at his brutal best. It will be televised LIVE! Live from Iraq. Live television that will capture the listless, dullard imagination of millions of bored Americans who fail to be seduced by the Jane Blond love interest of Joe Wilson on the low rated spy sitcom, “The Intricacies of Valerie Plame. “

Perhaps the trial will go on for several months and boost President Bush’s popularity and Greta Van Sustains ratings. Here’s an opportunity for the Administration to go over once again a justification for the war that President Bush had started against an evil dictator. An Evil dictator, who, Bush once said, ?He (Sadaam) tried to kill my dad?.

Perhaps it will distract the public's attention from Bush’s current problems of falling off bikes, sofas, choking on pretzels and having to interrupt his presidential duties due to the constant accumulation of all that damn brush he has to clear on the North 40 of his ranch in Crawford. He will be there the entire month of August, you know.

We may not hear, however, Sadaam's side of the story. Sadaam's testimony had been muted during his televised interrogation several months ago. Only his accusers were heard on Iraqi TV. Any American who comes to Sadaam's defense in any way will be ridiculed. Everyone knows that he is evil. He couldn’t possibly have a defense.

The prosecutors in Iraq have come up against a few problems though:

Sadaam Hussein is probably INNOCENT of most of the Charges that President Bush has accused him of on the basis that he did not commit the crimes he was accused of or there is simply no supporting evidence.

That is why the tribunal is dropping charges on Sadaamfor the following offences:

1) Gassing the Kurds in Halabja
2) Burying 400.000 people in mass graves.
3) Torture and Rape

These charges can’t be proven. Instead he is being charged so far with:

1). Killing 140 people in the
village of Dujaii, jailing many members of the town and destroying their date palm groves. (This occurred after an attempted assassination of Hussein in that town).

2). Crushing Revolts against his administration just after the 1991 Gulf War by Shiites and Kurds.

Were these the two reasons sufficient for a U.S. invasion?

I hope that everyone has heard by know that the Jaafari government along with Ahmed Chalabi has a military and industrial alliance with Iran. They hope Iran will provide the military help they need to quash the Sunni revolt. The United States is being asked to leave ASAP. So the United States adventure in Iraq will end with the result that Iraq now is a fundamentalist government modelled after Iran The United States is protecting the fundamentalist Iranian allied government of Iraq by fighting the insurgents, many of whom would like to see a secular, socialist government like they had before the Americans arrived. So the Americans are fighting on the wrong side of their purported goals and interests?.

In any case Sadaam can be executed immediately on any one of the above charges if found guilty. There will be no need to investigate any other charges. No need to investigate any of the charges that President Bush has accused him of after his execution. Will see how the Nielsen ratings go. If the ratings are high, it will be a long trial- if they are low perhaps Sadaam will be executed quickly.

George Bush vs. Sadaam As a War Criminal

George Bush is not awaiting trial. He is vacationing in Crawford Texas for the 50th time of his presidency. He’s going to spend another entire month of August on vacation as he did in 2001 just before the 9/11 attacks.

Sadaam Hussein will be sort of preparing for his trial and certain execution.

George Bush will not be put on trial for the following:

1). Gassing, Napalming Terrorizing Iraqis in Fallujah and razing 75% of the entire city of 300,000 people.
2). Killing 25 to 100 thousand Iraqi men, women and children
3). Using the American Military to rape, torture and murder Iraqis who were innocent of any crime.
4). Invading a sovereign nation illegally and on false pretences.
5). Arbitrarily Destroying hundreds Iraqi Date Palm Groves
6). Abuse and torture of children
7). Fabricating evidence for the war.
8). Issuing false reports of actions during the war, including staging and filming of events like the rescue of Jessica Lynch and the capture of Sadaam Hussein.
9). Terrorism of Shock and Awe.
10) Theft and extortion of Iraqi civilians, government and businessmen by organized U.S. Military Mafias and U.S. contractors.*

Here’s the latest on how an entire company of 130 men and women are being held on restrictive duty for mafia style extortion of Iraqi shop owners. It’s not just Halliburton. Everyone wants a piece of the action. Soldiers have compared what the contractors are being paid with how much they are making and, now they want a piece of the action too.

Like Sadaam Bush has used the military to arrest and jail thousands without hearing or trial. The Iraq war implemented by Bush has killed by some estimates between 25 to 100 thousand Iraqi civilians in an illegal invasion of a sovereign nation based on staged charges of possession of WMD. Like Sadaam, George Bush has ordered the destruction of countless Date Palm groves.

The result of his actions is that Iraq is to become an Islamic state allied with Iran. Bush’s actions promote Islamic Fundamentalism and are in accordance with and in harmony with the wishes of the terrorists who caused 911. Their goal was a unified Islam. That appears to me to be what is happening in Iraq and Iran with more nations to follow. These are the results of George Bush’s actions and therefore what one can infer as his intention. More on this point later.

Like Sadaam, George Bush is alleged to have used gas on the Iraqis. In Fallujah the U.S. has admitted using a replica of Napalm (Mark 77) an internationally banned chemical weapon.

Gas in Fallujah

Napalm in Fallujah

And Where as Sadaam is only alleged to have had rape rooms and torture room in Abu Ghraib, we actually have pictures and videos that show proof that Military commander and Chief George Bush and his administration have presided over the torture and killing of numbers of Iraqi prisoners and even an 8 year old girl in the torture and ?rape? rooms of Abu Ghraib.

Men, women and children have been raped, murdered and tortured there by American soldiers. Iraqi people continue to be tortured to this very day according to Iraqis who have been pro! testing outside the Abu Ghraib prison in recent days.

Reports that Sadaam gassed his own people are controversial. There was a war between Iraq and Iran in the 1980?s and in Halabja during which the gassing of Halabja occurred. Both Iranian and Iraqi forces used chemical gas. The Iraqi forces used chemical weapons supplied by the United States. It doesn’t appear Sadaam will be charged with this crime. It can’t be proved. It’s also messy for the U.S. as they were the supplier of Iraqi poison gas.

Poison Gas In Halabja

I can’t find this story
or here:

Reports that Sadaam buried 400.000 people in mass graves are not verifiable. Certainly this item was used for political purposes whether true or not. The Prime Ministers office in England stated some time ago, only 5.000 people are believed to be buried in mass graves. (Though Molly Ivins seems to think otherwise)

PM admits graves claim 'untrue'

Perhaps Sadaam will be charge with ‘not being a team player’ or "being cranky" when forced into hiding in a hole. Please go to this link to read how the capture of Sadaam was staged, so says an eyewitness U.S. Marine

Sadaam's Capture a Staged Event

Oh, so he wasn’t found hiding in a hole? Like Jessica Lynch, it seems he was captured after a fierce gunfight in which he fought with a handgun. So says a U.S. Marine who was quoted in a Saudi newspaper. (The report was never published here except once on a Rochester N.Y. local TV station). Upon finally surrendering Sadaam was placed in the hole and filmed for propaganda purposes to make it look like he was hiding in a hole. This makes Bush prophecy of ‘smoking them out of their holes? into reality. George Bush’s words become government-implemented prophecy.

I have to ask whether it is more important to try Sadaam Hussein or George Bush. Should Bush be tried for illegally invading a sovereign nation under false pretences: gassing and napalming the Iraqi people in Fallujah: torture, rape, murder and abuse of Iraqi detainees: the illegal ! killing of 25,000 to 100,000 Iraqi civilians?? or is it more important and urgent to try Sadaam Hussein for killing 140 people and putting down an armed revolt against his government.

Who was worse for the world George Bush or Sadaam Hussein? I think clearly George Bush is the winner: he is every bit the ?shock and awe? terrorist that Sadaam could only dream of being. And he has done something more. He has made the Iraq and the Arab world less democratic and more fundamentalist.

What are his intentions? Someone needs to ask this seriously. He seems to be supporting Islamic Fundamentalism and those sympathetic to terrorism, not opposing terrorism.

Is it possible he is a disturbed person? Is it possible that there is a cabal of people who share a variation of his disturbance called the Neo-Cons, also known to Colin Powell as "the crazies"?

Is it possible he is trying to dam! age the United States through supporting Islamic terrorism? Impossible? Unbelievable? I think theory I have is supported by his own actions and they are observable events. The result of his actions indicate this. You have to consider the results of the actions of a person in order to know their motivation. Of course in his case, he does not allow himself to be conscious of his motivation, it’s easier to accomplish these kinds of goals when you don’t have to confront yourself on what you are doing or why. Sound evil?

His behavior appears to be criminal behavior by any measure of the law. Bush appears to be a criminal president. If he is a criminal he should be held responsible and face trial for treason. He is working against the United States and in the interests of the 911 suicide bombers and they’re supporters. Osama Bin Laden couldn’t ask for more. He has just installed a fundamentalist government in Iraq that wants the U.S. out ASAP. He’s even causing trouble in Central Asia in Uzbekistan, encouraging the fundamentalists there through criticizing the secular, albeit repressive government. And he’s criticizing, secular Egypt, threatening secular Syria. Put it together. It doesn’t make sense any other way. It is what he wanted all along. It is his intention. Human beings do things like this. All of us do. But if we are not made aware of what we are really doing, if no one stops us and challenges us, we keep right on doing-it-whatever it! is.

That is a man who says he wants to be defined by his actions. He should be. We can only assume then, that this man of rage who was regarded as a big screw-up in his own family for 40 years, a black sheep who was cursed out and frequently warned by his dad for endangering the family name and his father’s delicate political position- that his motivation is to destroy the image of the United States. The image of his Father’s Land. He does everything the opposite of his father. He has told Bob Woodward he doesn’t consult with his father, he consults with a higher father. He has admitted to being told by God to invade Iraq, Afghanistan and to create peace in Israel. That’s called delusional by me. What are you going to call it? This from Haaretz an Israeli newspaper reporting Bush’s conversation with Abu Abbas the Palestinian Prime Minister at the time .

According to Abbas, immediately thereafter Bush said: "God told me to strike at al Qaeda and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East. If you help me I will act, and if not, the elections will come and I will have to focus on them."

How long are we going to let this little psycho----drama play out? It has nothing to do with anything but the world inside George Bush’s head the willingness of the American people to allow Bush to indulge himself in it. What happens after the November 2006 elections is that Bush will go full throttle toward whatever the voices in his head are telling him. There will be no restraints. That’s when the real fun begins. Bush likes to do things no one else does. No government or president has ever used Nuclear Weapons in war except for ! Harry Truman and he may not have realized just exactly what they were or what they would become. I am afraid this is going to be just too much of a temptation for our President. Our Vice President seems to be on board...pushing for it and Condoleezza Rice has mentioned the possibility as a way of demonstrating America's strength.

Just give them an excuse. It doesn’t have to be a real event because they can always make something up.
