Saddam's "confession"?
    #4628352 - 09/07/05 02:11 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Neat way of avoiding any "tricky for Bush" defence testimony?

Saddam Hussein has confessed to crimes and should be hanged 20 times, his successor as Iraq's president said yesterday while confirming that he will not sign a death warrant.
"Saddam deserves a death sentence 20 times a day because he tried to assassinate me 20 times," Jalal Talabani said in a lengthy interview on Iraqiya state television, recalling his days as a Kurdish rebel leader fighting the authorities.

Saddam had confessed to crimes, he said in answer to a question, though it was not clear what details Talabani had of a legal process that is intended to be separate from Iraqi politics.

"There are 100 reasons to sentence Saddam to death," he said, two days after the Shia- and Kurdish-led government confirmed that the deposed leader will go on trial on October 19, along with several aides, accused of killing 143 Shi'ite villagers after a failed assassination bid at Dujail in 1982.



Two things struck me about this. One, that they've had to go back to 1982 to find a crime and two, that killing innocents in response to a failed assassination attempt is rather ironic considering what happened after the "alleged" assasination attempt on Bush snr.

I think he should get stoned to death or tortured for his crimes. Aren't those people living in the stone age anyway? Tying a simple noose might prove too difficult.

Saddam was a great man and children used to fly kites in Iraq and get free medical care.

America is the Great Satan.

Not sure if the Iraqi "government" could risk that. Their grip on power is pretty tenuous as it is. Hanging Saddam would probably be seen as an incitement to violence by many Iraqis.

Indeed. Whether he "deserves" capital punishment or not is beside the point: giving him the death penalty would destabilize the already wobbly political situation.

Life imprisonment in a particularly boring jail cell. If you hang him tomorrow he's beyond punishment tomorrow. Jail the shit out of him.

Is it just me or would others like to see a little more (or any) transparency in the process of his indictment and trial?

This is something which should be heavily covered in the media, but it's not.

Saddam kills 134 in retaliation = evil incarnate

Bush kills thousand of innocent Iraqi civilians in retaliation, renames it acceptable collateral damage = a good Christian

:confused:
