|Saddam’s trial: A comedy show|
|1/28/2006 3:00:00 AM GMT|
Instead of a requirement that the Iraqi President’s
guilt be proved, there is an assumption of Saddam’s guilt that pervades the American media.
And there is a very strong reason for that - - it serves
as a secondary rationale for the U.S. illegal
war on Iraq, with the argument that
“no one can say that Iraq isn’t better off
without Saddam Hussein.” [I can -- "bush bush listen well; we love Saddam Hussein" chanted by thousands of iraqis]
America managed to occupy Iraq and oust its President
in a few weeks,
but it has neither
the international legitimacy
nor the local connections
that might make such a trial
a serious or meaningful affair.
