Saddam Hussein, a man responsible for over 100,000 murders and countless rapes and tortures; a man who has no regard for the lives or the well-being of others, is demanding his rights before the courts.
Excuse me? Did I miss something here?
This is why we should have just dropped a couple of frag grenades down that spider hole he was hiding in rather than risking the life of a perfectly good US soldier to capture him.
This is proof of just how selfish and demented this man truly is.
To think he has a right to anything decent after al that he has done is completely insane. I say let him defend himself at his trial. Feed him nothing but bread and water. Reduce the size of his cell to a 5x5x5 foot cage with no bed and only a tiny toilet for both eliminating waste and providing drinking water.
Better yet, strip him naked, tie him up, and toss him into a room filled with homosexual prisoners, preferably violent ones who enjoy raping their cellmates. Then we can let Larry Flynt do the first constructive thing of his life by filming what happens, editing it, and distributing it worldwide.
Toss Saddam to the people be tortured, mutilated, and brutalized. Give them permission to do anything they want to short of killing him for about 2 weeks. When they are done he will beg for death, all bravado gone, stolen by getting what he gave so generously.
To listen to retired Admiral and former US Attorney General (under LBJ) Clark you would think Saddam is some kind of martyr to be sympathized with rather than a bloodthirsty psychopath to be reviled. Let us take a brief look at the nature of this man who is defending Saddam.
He has made a career out of defending the worst criminals and psychopaths around the world. These are people so bad that no one else would have the low standards or pitiful morals to actually defend their actions. He is willing to lie and make up any excuse he can imagine in order to make a jury sympathize with his client as being some sort of victim rather than a sociopathic victimizer. He seeks to justify the worst atrocities anyone could commit and make them appear normal. This guy is absolutely reprehensible.
He claims he does it to protect these animal’s “rights”. I say he does it because he approves of what they do. This makes him an accessory to these atrocities.
Saddam deserves no rights. As one of the worst human rights abusers since Stalin died he has no place receiving humane treatment from anyone. It is a testament to the noble spirit of the US, and of the nascent Iraqi government, that this psychopath is being treated so well . . . so humanely when he deserves nothing good.
This proves that we Americans are better than any petty despot, and that we have a truly noble spirit that overcomes our desire to be vengeful.
Still, why we bothered to capture him rather than dropping a few grenades down his spider-hole is beyond me.
