Pictures of Saddam's Sons
    #1744493 - 07/24/03 01:58 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Does anyone remember when there was an uproar over the release of footage/pictures of American POW's, at the beginning of the war?





Well, why is it ok to release these pictures.. ?

Perhaps because they aren't POW's?

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

I understand that these were the terrible sons of a pretty terrible person by most people's standards, but I don't think it appropriate to celebrate their deaths as though the Wicked Witch just melted on the sidewalk.

Why do you think Uday and Qusay should be treated according to the Geneva convention for prisoners of war?

the dead GIs they showed on al jazeera wernt POW's either

i fail to understand how classification of a person (determined by the victors of war, ie. "Enemy Combatants"), and the conditions under which he was killed/died, can determine whether or not pictures of his dead body can be spread freely through the press

i think it is discpicable, and would like to believe that many iraqi's, pro or contra to the Saddams, would be pissed at the arrogance of the American's to release dead photos of their former leaders.

but also yeah, good riddance

you can show dead people all you like. You cannot put POWs under the spotlight, nor can you kill them once they are POWs.

On the contrary, publication of the pictures proves to the iraqi people that these rapists, murderers and torturers are really dead, they don't have to fear them anymore. That was not 100% certain before. Remember the previous time U.S. troops crossed the iraqi border to fight the regime and then pulled out again?

That's a sad thought, Grav. But it's impossible to get everything right. War is always a tragedy for everyone involved.

Yet another person that will find anything to bitch about that the government does. Give me a damn break. We did not want to release these images, but the Iraqis need proof that these guys are dead. They are not POWs, because they were not uniformed soldiers of an army. Bitch about it all you want, it isn't our fault that you 'fail to understand' it. Maybe you can get a tutor or something to help you with that. You can also 'like to think' whatever you want about the Iraqis. I would bet that most of them are glad these guys are dead. These two fuckers were like a real life boogie man to these people. Knowing for sure that they are dead is important to them.

"These people"? How many Iraqi's do you know? Everything you know about the Iraqi people could fit quite comfortably on the back of a postage stamp. With room to spare for your name and address.

I have quite a few Iraqi friends actually. So why don't you STFU when you don't know what you are talking about. My neighborhood has quite a few Iraqis, and other Middle Easterners in it that I talk to all the time. One of the ones I am more friendly with is from Basra, and he cried tears of joy when the war started. He is happy Saddam is gone, like most of his countrymen. Fuck off!

Calm down, you'll do yourself a mischief.

So when you said "these people" you didn't mean anyone living in Iraq? You meant all these "middle easterners" you allegedly know on your block?

He is happy Saddam is gone, like most of his countrymen

Precisely how many have you asked? Or is this based on the cheering crowd you saw when the statue of Saddam fell? Most iraqis are now without clean water or basic amenities and occupied by a foreign army who slaughtered 750,000 of their children through medieval sanctions policy. Not to mentioned being bombed. That sound like a "happy" situation to you?
