A lot of people are saying "Yay, Saddam is 'caught', great". But why? What is your reson for cheering? Sure, he was a nasty guy. So are many others. Is your reason for cheering based on emotion, law, justice, or what? Right now, Idi Amin sits happy and fat in Saudi Arabia, the country which spawned most of the 9/11 hijackers and a major ally of the USA. George Bush Junior was ultimately responsible for the executions of 152 citizens while governor of Texas. He also was ultimately responsible for the deaths of over 8000 Iraqi civilians during the invasion. This from a government which refused to join the ICC. Robert Mugabe sits happy on his stolen seat of power, playing at being a mini-Hitler, and nobody is chasing him down. Something like twenty million people in the USA live in poverty, and the country has one quarter of the world's prison population. Yet Bush blew a fortune on a war which profits only a handful of people, including the former CEO of Halliburton, Dick Cheney. Why isn't this money being used to help the homeless in the USA? In short: By what measure do you judge it a good thing that Saddam was hunted in his own country after an illegal invasion, and taken into the custody of a state which does things like Camp X-Ray? PS: Don't go whinging that I am a Saddam supporter. I'm not. I have made no mention in this post of my own personal opinion of the man. I don't intend to. I wish to know your rationale regarding international law and justice.
