Saddam Husseins execution: the US murders its creation

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2007

By Larry Chin

With the hanging of Saddam Hussein, the Bush administration, the mastermind of 9/11, has stayed true to criminal form, staging yet another offensive, grotesque and violent act of murder, celebrating it, propagandizing it, and demanding that the entire world join the George W. Bush lynch mob.

The week-long Saddam murder carnival is classic Bush administration, classic Karl Rove: find a relatively quiet moment (a holiday for most of the world), during which people are distracted, to lob a political bomb that dominates world media for days, in the hopes of shocking and awing public opinion and destroying political opposition.

Bush-Cheney-Rice has promised to stay the course, and here is more proof that they will, and thumb their noses at the entire world in the process.

The barbaric hanging of Saddam Hussein, and the resulting gibberish from the mouth of the insane, murder-loving George W. Bush, does not change worldwide opposition to the criminal Anglo-American policy one iota. It does not hide the criminality of the Bush administrations illegal invasion and occupation, or the multitudes of crimes committed over the past several years. It will not halt for one moment the investigations underway — the political hanging — that the opposing Washington faction has in store.

It does not hide the historical fact that Saddam Hussein was, and remains even in staged death, a creation of the United States — Americas strongman, the CIAs Iraq asset, put into power, funded, nurtured and loved by the United States, and the best friend and business associate of George H.W. Bush. Let the photographs of Saddam Hussein shaking hands with the likes of Donald Rumsfeld speak for themselves.

Let the fact that all of the weaponry that Saddam Hussein used to commit atrocities was supplied by the United States, along with logistics and the political a-okay directly from Washington.

Indeed, who was truly responsible for those massacres?

Indeed, which individuals — which brutal regime, which horrible dictators — truly deserve to go to the gallows for mass murder and crimes against humanity?

Which individuals are responsible for the atrocities and mass murder that have been continuous and daily since 2003?

Like his historical strawman brethren (Manuel Noriega, Osama bin Laden, etc.) Saddam Hussein, for whatever reason, never fingered the men who made him, despite many opportunities presented during his three-year kangaroo court. A final act of loyalty, perhaps.

But facts are facts, and these facts are documented history, for anyone to look up.

Saddam Husseins execution, Bushs latest incitement, is sure to fan more hatred, and roil the mushrooming civil war and chaos. It will make the despised Iraqi puppet government (composed entirely of US intelligence assets and traitors), all the more unable to manage the chaos and anger, and the impossible rifts between factions. This, too, is part of the larger Bush plan to foment further violence and create more terrorism across the Middle East, and end all talk of negotiation; all talk of a change of course. All so that US forces will never leave the region, never end the war on terrorism.

Could a staged capture and execution of Osama bin Laden be far behind?

The nightmare reality of a world in chaos, in flames at the hands of the Bush administration, can no longer be obscured by violent, grotesque Orwellian propaganda designed to distract and divide.

The Barbaric Lynching of President Saddam Hussein

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2007

On the Holy day of Eid, the world watched in horror at the barbaric lynching of President Saddam Hussein of Iraq, allegedly for crimes against humanity. This public murder was sanctioned by the War Criminals, President Bush and Prime Minister Blair.

This sadistic act broadcasted to the whole world is a travesty of justice, and was meant to demonstrate the imperial power of the United States and serves as a warning to peace loving peoples that we must either bow to the dictates of the Bush regime or face the consequences of a public lynching.

The lynching was also an insult to all Muslims, as it occurred on the Holy Day of Eid, whereby Muslims devote themselves to prayer and forgiveness. It is all too clear that the war criminal Bush has no sensitivities whatsoever for Muslims on their pilgrimage to Mecca. This barbaric act is a sacrilege!

The entire trial process was a mockery of justice, no less a Kangaroo Court. Defence counsels were brutally murdered, witnesses threatened and judges removed for being impartial and replaced by puppet judges. Yet, we are told that Iraq was invaded to promote democracy, freedom and justice.

A peaceful country has now been turned into a war zone. Over 500,000 children died as a result of the criminal economic sanctions, and the latest findings by the medical journal, Lancet reveals that over 650,000 Iraqis have died since the illegal invasion of 2003.

The War Criminal Bush has killed more Iraqis than President Saddam ever did, if in fact he was guilty of any crime. If President Saddam Hussein is guilty of war crimes, then the world must find Bush, Blair and Howard equally guilty and the International Criminal Court cannot but prosecute these war criminals. The inaction thus far by the International Criminal Court against Bush, Blair and Howard exposes the double standard of the said Court, when it does not hesitate to prosecute war crimes committed in Dalfur, Rwanda and Kosovo.

If we support human rights and justice, we must condemn this barbaric lynching of President Saddam Hussein. There can be no excuse whatsoever for this injustice under any circumstances. War Criminal Bush and the puppet regime in Iraq have made a mockery of the Rule of Law.
