The Execution of Saddam Hussein
Posted: Friday, December 29, 2006

Saddam Hussein was executed by the U.S government

Remember that this execution was carried out by a U.S. installed government in Iraq while the U.S. is also occupying Iraq. The U.S. illegally invaded Iraq and killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. Simply put, Saddam Hussein was executed by the U.S. government no matter how they try to spin it.

¤ Saddam at the End of a Rope
It was symbolic that 2006 ended with a colonial hanging--- most of it (bar the last moments) shown on state television in occupied Iraq. It has been that sort of year in the Arab world. After a trial so blatantly rigged that even Human Rights Watch---the largest single unit of the US Human Rights industry--- had to condemn it as a total travesty. Judges were changed on Washington's orders; defense lawyers were killed and the whole procedure resembled a well-orchestrated lynch mob. Where Nuremberg was a more dignified application of victor's justice, Saddam's trial has, till now, been the crudest and most grotesque. The Great Thinker President's reference to it 'as a milestone on the road to Iraqi democracy' as clear an indication as any that Washington pressed the trigger.

¤ Bush Lies Again After Saddam Executed
Saddam Hussein had barely stopped dangling when George W. Bush revved up the lie machine.
His idea of justice is "rough justice" or "frontier justice" or "the King's justice," whereby if he calls it justice, it is justice. If he deems it a fair trial, it is a fair trial.

"Today, Saddam Hussein was executed after receiving a fair trial," he said in the very first sentence of his rushed statement, a claim Bush repeated, in case you missed it, in his second sentence and then again in his third.

But Bush, as powerful as he is, does not make a trial fair by declaring it fair.

Iraq poll: U.S. troops departure is asset
BAGHDAD, Dec. 29 (UPI) -- About 90 percent of Iraqis feel the situation in the country was better before the U.S.-led invasion than it is today, according to a new ICRSS poll.

Top Ten Ways the US Enabled Saddam Hussein
The tendency to treat Saddam and Iraq in a historical vacuum, and in isolation from the superpowers, however, has hidden from Americans their own culpability in the horror show that has been Iraq for the past few decades. Initially, the US used the Baath Party as a nationalist foil to the Communists. Then Washington used it against Iran. The welfare of Iraqis themselves appears to have been on no one's mind, either in Washington or in Baghdad.

Hanging Saddam
The execution of Saddam Hussein is another grim chapter in the catalogue of war crimes perpetrated against the Iraqi people. It is a gratuitous act of barbarism devoid of justice.

Bombings Kill at Least 68 in Iraq

It's a hornet's nest. But I'm game. So why not jump in.
"Bush administration officials" are telling CNN that Saddam Hussein will be hanged this weekend. Convention dictates that we precede any discussion of this execution with the obligatory nod to Saddam's treachery, bloodthirsty rule and tyranny. But enough of the cowardly chatter. This thing is a sham, of a piece with the whole corrupt, disastrous sham that the war and occupation have been. Bush administration officials are the ones who leak the news about the time of the execution. One key reason we know Saddam's about to be executed is that he's about to be transferred from US to Iraqi custody, which tells you a lot. And, of course, the verdict in his trial gets timed to coincide with the US elections.

Robert Fisk: A dictator created then destroyed by America
But history will record that the Arabs and other Muslims and, indeed, many millions in the West, will ask another question this weekend, a question that will not be posed in other Western newspapers because it is not the narrative laid down for us by our presidents and prime ministers - what about the other guilty men?

The Execution of Saddam Hussein
The execution of former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein serves not justice, but the political purposes of the Bush administration and its Iraqi stooges. The manner in which the execution was carried out—hurriedly, secretively, in the dark of night, in a mockery of any semblance of legal process--only underscores the lawless and reactionary character of the entire American enterprise in Iraq.
