Death has made Saddam, He is getting stronger and stronger every second after his being martyred.
George W Bush boldly meted out a sinister punishment in revenge to an enemy President; I hope he too is ready and willing to face judgment if it comes his way soon.
The Bible advised that it's those without sin that should cast judging stones, I hope the Shia and US who cast the judging stones to Saddam are sinless, or they will meet theirs too.
Even all who believe Saddam should be killed, including the majority of Moslems, do not believe he should have been killed as the only achievement of a failed government, because that alone seriously questions the possibility of him having had a fair trial. When all else the government and the coalition has stood for and has done has been lies and failure! Saddams trial is not likely to be any different.
Then we read and hear the complaints of the defense attorneys describing the US orchestrated court as a public propaganda comedy show.
The Kurds are mad, because only Shia decided to use their power to meet revenge on him, and didn’t allow them too to receive justice and closure. We see a justice served him which is just only in being justice as a balance of scales when Saddams type of justice is used for the measure.
GW Bush has returned the world to the days of Saint Peter, where his head was promised family on a platter. GWBu**** kudos! I bet you kept your promise and made daddy’s birthday wish.
But Saddam grows stronger every minute of his death, as Jesus became after the crucifiction, so seems Saddam, cuz now the world pities him, the Moslems are mad you chose their most holy day and day of usual forgiving and prisoner pardon to slaughter him, and the world slowly sees he may have just been as many mentally unbalanced people needing something different and and at least a fair trial, and that he has been judged by man and received his punishment for fights he believed in as we do many of our wars against enemies that are still enemies of grave concern to some of us, like Iran.
Hence the world sees him as a symbol of a man accused, slandered, and slaughtered by the people who taught him all he knew and gave him all he had, and turned against him when he failed to provide them as was the deal, with the Persians. Frankenstein masters. I wonder as his former masters do what he really did with the weapons they supplied him, no wonder they were so sure he had them, cuz they gave them to him. Poor genius.
The world sees a man who has received justice and is now pure, repented at death and hence died clean and prepared and born again. Which many of us unfortunately may not be, as we may die unprepared.
The world gradually pities dead Saddam, and hates his crucifiers! Gradually..gradually….gradually…
Only Iran and GWBush senior and junior rejoice this.

The accusers of the late Mr. Saddam thought that humilitating him by hanging was a sign of victory for a propangada war.
A war that was never approved by the United Nations Security Council, not even by its General Assembly. A war that portrayed America as a first class terrorist group, terrorising the whole world with their might. No wonder that Mr. Putin of Russia replied Mr. Bush that they did not need the type of "regime change in Iraq".
In Nigeria here, names have meaning to people. What do you expect from a regime that is lead by "bush", "rice", "wood", "stone" and the likes? Nothing good, of course. A thorough examination of the types of names of those at the helm of affairs in America since after the exit of Mr. Bill Clinton would suggest people without human feelings.
Think of the Japanese fishing thrawler that was sank, the Chinese pilot and aircraft that was lost, the civilians that were murdered in Hawai while the American naval officers were training, etc all within the first six months of Mr. Bush's administration, an administration of tyranny.
No sinner shall go unpunished. Only God the Almighty Father knows what type of end awaits the Americans who weere behind Mr. Saddam's fall and dealth.
There was nothing wrong in Mr. Saddam protecting the office of the head of State. Our own OBJ and IBB in Nigeria, for example, signed death sentences and effected them on many military officers, even when some of these officers were only obeying the "last command".
It happened in the past all over the world, it is still happening now, and it will continue to happen.
If the meek must inherit the earth, the bully must necessarily receive judgement before such an inheritance becomes both realisable and sustainable.
On this note, I write: May Mr. Saddam's soul continue to trouble his accusers and enemies. May his soul never rest until his enemies are put to shame, amen.
The world is in need of justice.

The evil men do leaves with them but that does not encourage us president to enforce the hanging of saddam hussein in other to please himself, he should know that by going to war in irag was unjust and many massacres has been done bcos of illegal war.
In my view G.W BUSH should be try for crime against humanity.

The Pinochets, Idi Amins, Bokasas, Mobutus etc of this world did not get similar punishment for their crimes against humanity.
Nor did Milosevic whose trial dragged on and on till he nswered the call of nature. What the afore metionned leaders have in common is that they were not in the USA s bad books.
As such no Kangaroo courts were asembled to decide their fate.

The crime he commited is not enough reason to hang him. He who laughs today may cry tomorrow. I have never seen a President Killed in that manner since ever my life.
