Playing Saddam Again

November 6, 2006 at 7:12 pm (Uncategorized)

     The US Administration is using Mr Saddam Hussein once again, this time to get Republican votes in the the midterm elections tomorrow. The announcement of his execution gets made only two days before the election. How much of a coincidence is that, I ask myself.

     The whole report by the judge will not be out till at least Thursday but for some reason it was super important to announce his fate yesterday. Come on, who do they think that they are fooling with all this. It is obvious that they have lost support on the so- called Iraq war/ occupation and that they needed some good Iraqi news before the elections.

     The US Administration is just playing Saddam Hussein once again for their own purposes like they have been for the last twenty years or so. I will not defend Saddam here, he is an evil man and he is responsible for the deaths of thousands of people.

    The question that needs to asked is while he was doing all this killing, who turned a blind eye to him. The answer is the USA. They were friends back then. He was the lesser evil then I guess, but it is right to manipulate a lesser evil for political gain, I think not.

    What is real sad in all this, is that many people will
not notice and vote Republican anyways. I really do hope that  some
voters  will take note and decide not to support Bush and his
Republican buddies.
