Death of a Salesman's Customer

Saddam Hussein executed for war crimes

When did we decide that killing people was the best way to show that killing people is wrong? And more importantly, when are we going to evolve from this barbaric concept?




The Saddam in Rumsfeld's Closet
Oh Rummy, we hardly knew ye.

In my tree hugging liberal opinion, this is one of the most gruesome things I have ever seen.

Bush calls this a milestone. I'm afraid it's pouring gasoline on a fire. I agree with you. What the hell? We kill people to punish them for killing people? How does that help? Anyone who believes that this whole trial was not American directed is fooling themself.

Yes, PoP. This whole thing has the stink of the U.S. all over it.

Rats are weeping in the gutters
Between the two rivers. The bone-dry air is motionless
And the water is muted, lifeless. Mesopotamia is
Going round the bend, teetering on the edge.
Citizens of this great land, caked with blood,
Walk, stunned and weeping while a shadow looms
Behind an enormous object whose jaws rumble.

Was it worth your capture? Your death sentence?
You’ve carried out torture, murder, rape and genocide,
Now there is a larger thing haunting your land and people.
That enormous thing’s been sent as your executioner,
But it is not God. No. It is not Allah. It is empire.
And its sunburned grief of crippled beasts
Shall haunt you for eternity.

In the world you leave, men are still filled with hate
And horror beyond the quaking gates, summoning murder,
Clambering across the wilderness, devouring children.
Empire, has not, nor will it ever warble an angel’s song
Or sing out in a reverent verse for mankind!
It shall echo its high-pitched droning of “odium”
While the rats fill their lungs with tears.

Just dropping by to say Hi.

Hi.

Been having router and kidney stone problems, so I haven't been on much.

Happy New Year.
Peace.

An eye for an eye leaves us all blind, eh?

makes me wonder what Saddam knew -- if they worked to shut him up so fast and so permanently.
