Uh-oh. Maybe we should let him go free. I love it when pots call kettles black. What I don't love is when they get a lot of press about it, and someone wants to feel sorry for him...

No, you are right, mint, our leaders are the good guys on the white horses and wearing the cowboy hats. They're in church every Sunday so they couldn't possibly ever do anything wrong.

Tell it to the poor Iraqi slobs who got bombed to daylights when we took out Bin Laden's buddy, Saddam. Oh, BTW, we got Bn Laden, right? How's that going?

Let's see Saddam tortured people, he's on trial.

Bush and Cheney torture people, and they are rewarded with millions of dollars and long paid vacations.

well-said Joe..

the opposite of dysfunctional is still dysfunctional. What concerns me, mint, is that you appear unable to see the "evil" in the above-mentioned U.S. representatives. Killing is killing. Period. Whether you do it by Mustard Gas or bombing a city into nothingness. The family of a killed Iraqi still feels the pain of the loss - no matter who did the deed and how.

Actually, come to think of it, because of our tactics, they are *more* likely to turn against us in jihad...hmmm....

Seriously, mint...i really hope you are able to someday see both sides of this.

By the way, they're not trying him for the gassing of the Kurds. If they did, well then Rummy and Cheney might wind up being material witnesses as they were the ones who supplied Saddam with the stuff.

Okay, spearmint is broken.

Barzan took center stage, accusing prosecutors of being former Baath party members.

"This is the biggest insult in my life, to be associated with this blood-stained party," replied one prosecutor, who asked to be relieved of his duties because of personal insults from the dock -- a request dismissed by the Kurdish judge.


So the defendant points at the prosecutors and says "You were in on this with me!" and one of the prosecutors agrees with him and asks to be let out.

At the risk of invoking Godwin's law, I gotta say this trial isn't exactly Nuremberg.

Here's the money quote, though:

The lion does not care about a monkey laughing at him from a tree

Now that's how a deposed dictator is supposed to talk.

Tofer started the thread and pointed out that hypicritical summum Saddam whining about his prediciment and calling the kettle black. This guy has always been FOS.

If you think about it, all those on my list are equally FOS in preaching about their causes.
All are well versed in double speak, fact distortion and deception in order to advance their own agenda, regardless of the consequences to others.

So I'm asking you guys to add to the list. It would be interesting to see who everyone here thinks also fits this bill and also who annoys you most with their BS.

I think he's sincere.

I am convinced that he believes that his actions were fully justified.

He was brought up in a brutal culture. He did awful things. But to him, those awful things were justified by the fact that he was the ruler and it was always *his* call to make.

I don't think he understands ideas like empathy or the value of a single human life that's not a member of his immediate family. His whole culture was built around his rigid authority. He defined morality. There was no one to tell him that he did anything wrong.

Um no, there weren't. He already had their heads cut off.

Someone really should have just thrown a grenade or two down in that hole.

I don't quite get what you see here mint. Is it that we'd best be the baddest guys on the block?

If they wanted us to tear up our Constitution and Bill of Rights, to abandon our core beliefs and use their own methods to fight them, youda been pissed and said no.

But because they made it seem like our idea to do all that you say yes. How much of America are you willing to give away? Once you give up a freedom it almost never comes back to you.

We are about 2 inches from making "Land of the Free" a mockery. Is that ok with you? These guys you listen to aren't "conservatives", they're "authoritarians" of the worst stripe.

What does any of that have to do with whether they lied?



It is what it is.
