Bush's Proudest Moment

Saddam is dead.

He was captured under really strange circumstances that some Iraqis tell us was a staged handover.

He was kept by US forces during his internment.

He was tried by an Iraqi puppet government owned, appointed and protected by the US Military.

His trial was run according to 8th century standards with hearsay evidence, secret evidence, and witnesses testifying that had no direct knowledge of the events that they were testifying about.

Saddam did not have the opportunity to call witnesses that he had worked with, as he was being tried in a war zone.

He was not given the right to be heard in a world court. He was not given the right to choose his attorneys. And the trial didn't miss a beat when his attorneys and even one judge were assisinated, evidently, because they weren't really factors in the outcome of the trial.

Finally when the death sentence was handed down, there was a mad rush to kill him as quickly as possible.

I don't doubt that this entire trial was nothing but a stage play, that Bush already gave the order that he be found guilty and convicted. I don't have any doubts that it was Bush that decided he would get the death penalty and likely Bush decided he'd hang. And he needed Saddam to be killed before the new congress comes into session.

Bush killed the guy that tried to kill his dad. This will be Bush's crowning achievement. The mountain of corpses that Bush has given the world is a small matter to him, compared to killing Hussien. But they aren't unimportant to him. They glorify him as a War President. You can see in his eyes in the speeches that this is what makes him proud its his duty to give us wars.

We know that Bush thinks of himself as a christian and a follower of Jesus, who makes the hard choices and slaughters the unbelievers. Perhaps one day, the mountain of corpses he has built, will be high enough that he can stand upon them and step accross to heaven, to meet St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, and brag about how he killed the guy that tried to kill his dad.

Bush in the US has worked hard to set himself as a cop, judge, jury and executioner. The torture bill that he's so proud of gives him the right to have anyone he wants, picked up and tortured for the rest of their lives with no recourse for trial, defense or even notifying friends and loved ones.

But even when Bush sees that a trial is necessary, its only a staged play. The outcome in trials he manages, can only end one way.

They were probably also afraid that Saddam would write a book or something.
