The Barbaric Lynching of President Saddam Hussein

Press Statement

Global Research, January 1, 2007
On the Holy day of Eid, the world watched in horror at the barbaric lynching of President Saddam Hussein of Iraq, allegedly for crimes against humanity. This public murder was sanctioned by the War Criminals, President Bush and Prime Minister Blair.
This sadistic act broadcasted to the whole world is a travesty of justice, and was meant to demonstrate the imperial power of the United States and serves as a warning to peace loving peoples that we must either bow to the dictates of the Bush regime or face the consequences of a public lynching.
The lynching was also an insult to all Muslims, as it occurred on the Holy Day of Eid, whereby Muslims devote themselves to prayer and forgiveness. It is all too clear that the war criminal Bush has no sensitivities whatsoever for Muslims on their pilgrimage to Mecca. This barbaric act is a sacrilege!
If we support human rights and justice, we must condemn this barbaric lynching of President Saddam Hussein. There can be no excuse whatsoever for this injustice under any circumstances. War Criminal Bush and the puppet regime in Iraq have made a mockery of the Rule of Law.
Do you think the Execution Date was planned? Nothing like adding fuel to the fire. Now when the Iraq's get really pissed we can say "see" that's why we are there!

I agree with your sentiment, though worded in a different manner. Any self-respecting person who calls themselves humane must feel saddened by our fellow beings actions in situations such as this. At least I'm not alone regarding my feelings and thoughts in this matter...

Nope, not alone. I agree that Saddam Hussein is/was a monster, but, no one deserves to be executed like this.. I was wondering what would have been wrong with ..say, lethal injection? Perhaps not macho enough? Vengeance is served but......And why on a Holy Day if not further provocation?
