SADDAM'S TRIAL - "AN ASSAULT ON TRUTH AND JUSTICE"
So, who is being quoted above? some Sunni cleric? Mr Galloway MP? Fidel? well, no, it was actually Ramsay Clark, who he? I hear you ask. He's the ex Attorney General of the USA, the last shreds of Western decency were stripped away by this kangaroo court and the subsequent indecent spectacle of his execution. The Vietnam coward Bush described it grotesquely as a "step toward democracy" Come on now, don't be so modest George, it was your blessed saviour the Lord Jesus Christ who delivered him up for you George to smite him, amen. The anti capital punishment countries shamefully hid and did not protest, sordid behaviour or what? how long will it be before we can use 'pay to view' to watch executions? how long before we can pay to be there live? how long before we can pay to pull the lever?, there is an opportunity here for some enterprising capitalist, hell, there's a niche market here boys, what the heck are you entrepreneurs waiting for? Saddam's regime was evil but we in the West are no better after what happened over the last week or so, I feel ashamed of what went on and the blatant dishonesty surrounding the whole ghastly spectacle, I sincerely hope that the cause of abolishing the death penalty is given a boost by these squalid events. As Gandhi once said when asked what he thought about Western civilisation " I think it would be a good idea "
