It’s good for the Iraqi people to see the rule of law in action, instead of the rules of torture, rape, and murder under Saddam Hussein. It can’t hurt Bush either in the sense that the Iraqi people would not have witnessed what they did today when Saddam got the noose thrown at him, were it not for the vision of George W. Bush.
The majority of Iraqis were dancing in the streets today in celebration of the verdict.
All except some Sunni Arabs that is. They protested Saddam’s conviction in the streets. The Sunnis, a minority of the overall population in the country, enjoyed privileged status during Saddam’s 30 years ruling Iraq. It takes a sorry lot of people to think that they are somehow better and entitled to privileged status over all others. Sort of like Nancy Pelosi and Howard Dean and Harry Reid, but worse.
How long will it take before somebody starts calling for a retrial in an international court?
News of Saddam’s verdict has been tempered in the press. Some ‘fear’ that the news would be good for Bush. To which I say, to the victor goes the spoils. We have been hearing for years that Iraq is ‘Bush’s war,’ both he and the Iraqi people deserve some credit. One thing is certain, Democrats can’t take credit for prosecuting this war because they’ve been consumed with fighting to defeat Bush because of the war. I think I’ve said this before, but it bares repeating. If it’s good for America, it’s bad for the Democrats.
