What is that saying? The enemy of my enemy is my friend?

Until they become your enemy too.

His execution is a warning to all tryants with oil, that if they're going to mistreat their people they better stay on the good side of the US.

And how many Americans - Bremmer, Abizaid, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Rice, Bush -should on this precendent be charged and hanged?

Why was he put to death so soon?
Could it be that the genocide trials that he should have had to sit for would expose the complicity of the US, Britain, Germany and France...in the manufacturing of his nerve gas, anthrax, cluster bombs and helicopter gunships and his amiable business relationships with Cheney, Rumsfeld and Bush snr in past decades did not annoy anyone as long as Saddam paid his bills???

Chuck said...

Good point Peaches. They are all complicit.
