Saddam and His Crew Were the Devil Incarnate

I was reading this story over at the Washington Post on Saddam and his cousin proudly discussing the potential effects of gassing thousands of Kurds in northern Iraq. Seemed old Saddam liked to tape some of his conversation, does that sound remotely familiar? The tapes were killed when his cousin started reading from the Koran. From this little meeting some folks say that over 180,000 people were murdered. That noose is still available for the rest of these co-conspirators.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Saddam Hussein and his cousin "Chemical Ali" discussed killing thousands with chemical weapons before unleashing them on Kurds in 1988, according to tapes played on Monday in a trial of former Iraqi officials.

Nine days after Saddam's hanging, his front-row seat in the dock was conspicuously empty, but Ali Hassan al-Majeed and five other Baath party officials remain on trial for their roles in the 1988 Anfal, or Spoils of War, campaign in northern Iraq.

For the record I am not a supporter of this war. I am however a very large and appreciative supporter of all our troops serving in this war. Our troops were ordered into this field of battle by the President and the Congress and there is no greater fighting force in the world than our kids in all of the branches of the United States Military! That being said, while our kids are there lets have them gather up and arrest as many participants in this crime against humanity. Let the Iraqi courts dispense justice as their customs and traditions suggest.

If these monsters want to consider themselves martyrs then so be it. Personally, I find it very morbid to want to watch the hanging of Saddam Hussein video but that is human nature. We all suffer from this condition whether we like to admit it or not. Your guilty if you ever did the head jerk while passing an accident on the highway to hopefully get a peak. It’s part of life, feel free to forgive yourself for it. The only thing that pisses me off is that the government didn’t call dibs on the video of Saddam on the gallows. I’m pretty sure the rental fees could have paid for a huge chunk of this war that President Bush has us in.

I do have one fear, the fear for our kids in uniform in Iraq will pay the highest price in serving their nation. The greater the publication of the hanging of the Iraqi monsters, the greater the chance that the insurgents will find a new source of support from a population that cares not for the truth but sees an Iraqi at the end of the rope that has been put there by America.

I agree that the men and women of the armed forces, as well as their families, are the Americans who suffer the most over this war!
