Ok, so I will quote some things from this article that are really getting on my nerves:
* ""We wanted him to be executed on a special day," National Security adviser Mouwafak al-Rubaie told state-run al-Iraqiya television reports AP" Speacial being Eid????
* "Officials wanted to reserve the occasion for Saddam alone." Why? Did they fear he might get offended if others were hanged after him?
* "President Bush said in a statement issued from his ranch in Texas that bringing Saddam to justice "is an important milestone on Iraq's course to becoming a democracy that can govern, sustain and defend itself, and be an ally in the war on terror."" A few questions to Mr. Bush: Who and when will they hang you? Will you go after Saudi next, seeing as it has no human rights to speak of, and absolutely lacks anything even resembling democracy? You want Iraq to join in the war against terror? Is that before, or after the different sects finish each other off through the civil war? Umm.. who will they fight anyways? Themselves or Afghanistan... or will you come up with another "Axes of evil"???
* ""This is the end of an era in Iraq," al-Nauimi said from Doha, Qatar. "The Baath regime ruled for 35 years. Saddam was vice president or president of Iraq during those years. For Iraqis, he will be very well remembered. Like a martyr, he died for the sake of his country."" Since when did a tyrant suddenly become a martyr? Granted they had no right to kill him, but HELLO!!! How can they make him into a victim? The only thing he is a victim of, is Arab treason... no more, no less. It is something every Arab politician is used to by now, so i don't see how it could have affected him.
