Guilty: Saddam Hussein Sentenced To Swing ...
So, we see old Iraqi bogeyman Saddam Hussein's been found guilty of crimes against humanity. As everyone always knew he would be.
In spite of him having so many old friends in such powerful positions, and well placed to plead on his his behalf. It just goes to show you, eh? A friend in need -- can all too often turn out to be a real pain in the arse, eh?
And while we'll certainly shed no tears at seeing such a shit sorted out, we can't help but wonder why so many others of his ilk were never arrested, incarcerated and tried in a court in a likewise manner.
The others we wonder about are far too numerous to list but, many of them live much, much closer to home than Iraq.
Another thing we can't help but wonder about is the timing of the final findings. Just one more big coincidence, eh? An awful lot of 'em about lately ain't there?
After postponement aplenty, the day eventually decided upon turned out to be two days before the US mid term elections.
The elections set to be decided upon by Diebold (and other), electronic vote counting machines.
And, the elections about to take place without any exit polls being allowed.
It seems that fact really does turn out to be much stranger than fiction. Time after time, after time, after time ...
Well, doesn't it? Don't you think?
Here's a BBC news piece, though we're sure there'll be more than plenty more to follow. All of which will help ensure the US MSM will have an excellent excuse to relegate mere mid term elections - right on down to the bottom of the bill.
International resonance of Iraq verdict
Analysis By Paul Reynolds World affairs correspondent, BBC News website
The trial of Saddam Hussein was supposed to mark an important moment in a process of turning Iraq from dictatorship to the rule of law.
However, it might turn out to be just another event in the catalogue of chaos that has engulfed the country.
Its long-term importance might lie more in its effect on a growing body of international law trying to deal with government repressions.
Effect in Iraq uncertain ...
Uncertain? It's effect in Iraq?
Yeah, sure. We don't doubt it.
What about everywhere else?
