Liberals React To Saddam Verdict

Early reactions from the Libtards over at the HuffPost:

I don't know of anyone who thinks this was a "fair trial".
So, is anyone surprised by the results of this biased court?

Saddam is a far better man than George W. Bush ever thought about being.
By: shrike on November 05, 2006 at 07:58am

The number of innocents massacred by the neo-con zionist regime directing the Bush administration dwarfs those attributed to Saddam, and since the USA is still, though tenuously, a democracy, all US citizens bear an ultimate responsibility for these atrocities.

Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice and many others need to be brought to account for their crimes against humanity.
The only appropriate punishment would be a public hanging.

President Lincoln killed 250,000 of his own people, he called them Confederates.

One thing about Saddam he is more of man than the other god damn murdering piece of shit, Bush.
Can you see Bush telling the judge he wants a firing squad instead of hanging?
By: BushCoSatanIncarnate on November 05, 2006 at 08:42am

By the way, I haven't seen a single post yet from a HuffPo reader who thinks that Saddams' conviction is a good thing. Things will be so much better if the Democrats win on Tuesday, don't ya think?

This liberal thinks that he should get a short rope so he suffocates instead of getting the neck snap.

Hey, I got a job!

I wonder two things mainly, the first, Why wasnt Saddam tried in an international court like the Hague, the way the world usually deals with international criminals? It was good enough for the Nazi's. It seesm a bit odd is all I'm saying, you can hardly count Iraq as a stable government, and as such history is likely to view this trail as a travesty of democratic ideals.

The second thing I wonder is will this improve the situation in Iraq? The death tolls havent done anything but grow, attacks are up, and dozens of bodies appear in the streets daily having been tortured and murdered. Will this verdict make things better? how?

Two Army National Guard combat brigades with about 7,000 troops have been identified recently in classified rotational plans for possible special deployment to Iraq, according to senior Army and Pentagon officials, who asked that the specific units not be named. One brigade could be diverted to Iraq next year from another assignment, and the other could be sent there in 2008, a year ahead of schedule.

Next year, the number of Army Guard soldiers providing security in Iraq will surge to more than 6,000 in about 50 companies, compared with 20 companies two years ago, Guard officials said. "We thought we'd see a downturn in operational tempo, but that hasn't happened," said one official…

Hey Senor - Hope you don't mind me answering Joe - I'm going to anyway and you can throw in any 2 cents worth I miss. -

Sadamm was being tried for crimes he commited against the Iraqi people. We could drag him to the Hague for attacking Kuwait a few years back but then he would die of old age before they could choose a lawyer for him...

The attacks in Iraq are up because the terrorists want to affect your and my vote on the 7th and 8th of November. (Republicans vote on the 7th - Democrats vote on the 8th)

Terrorists are hoping the bad news put out by CNN and HuffPO will make you think that Iraq is a lost cause. and we are losing American lives for nothing.

I'd suggest you hit some of the MilBlogs to find out what our troops say is really going on. Those that Kerry disses as being dumb can and do write blogs. Check 'em out...

I read military blogs on occasion, thanks, all of them I've read are optimistic about their specific duties , but that doesnt even begin to portray an accurate picture of morale much less what is actually occuring in the streets of Iraq.

So far as Saddam is concerned, we all know he is guilty of killing his own people. Nobody is saying the verdict (of Guilt) was not just, well, I guess Saddam might think so, but what problem I do have is with any verdict decided during a civil war with a Government nearly hand picked by the country that invaded Iraq. It flies in the face of democratic principle of a fair trial, lets not even discuss the number of lawyers killed during the trial (which in general I'm all for, We could do with a lot less of them).

As to whether he would die of old age before we could find him a lawyer in the Hague, so what? He'd be locked up, no threat to anyone, and then he would die. The difference in outcome? None.

There was no Election Rise in violence, it's Still dangerous, not dangerous again, or becuase of any polls. In fact since Bagdad has been under curfew for the last few days you would assume attacks had gone down. Bagdad doesnt even have a stable 3 hours of electricity in most of the city (unless you count the walled city "green zone") Do you really think they even know what is going on over here? Much less what the outcome of a given election might possibly be?

I can imagine if they did know they would try to influence our elections, but only to keep republicans in power, who else would let you go 5 years without bothering to capture Osama, who else has no coherent plan for anything they ever do? All they ever use is platitudes and talking points to fuel the fires of racism, homophobia and misplaced patriotism of their sheep.

I am not a democrat, and once there are some Democrats in power you will get to see that, as I'll be exactly as hard on them and their screw ups. I just want accountablity, honesty, and the return of this country to a democratic Republic, and away from the Theocratic leanings we've managed in the last 6 years. I for one am tired of the fascist propaganda of this administration, I am ready to see the return of common sense, and the return of real conservatives to the halls of government. Liberals too, as we need them both to conduct an actual democracy.

As to your 7th - 8th bit, I hope for your sake someone is that stupid, but I've already voted, as has everyone I personally know in my local area. I at least made it a point to get others to the polls, rather than attempting to disenfranchise the rights (duty some would say) of others.

Only an idiot would believe Kerry said anything denigrating the troops, look up the PRE-RELEASED speach Kerry gave, and you will see his intended words. So long as you keep getting your news from folks who just lie to you, you will continue to be so pathetically deluded. as I've said to Kevin, do your own homework, It's that kind of lazy acceptance of talking points that is destroying our country.

Unlike some, I want you to vote, I dont care if you vote against your own self interest and the interests of the majority of americans. It is your right to be uninformed and vote with the propaganda, just as it is my right to point out how stupid that is. I dont care how you vote, so long as in doing so you do not try to take the votes of others. I know we have a lot of racist idiots in this country, and it's their right to be racist idiots. I know we have people who beleive that this country should be a christian nation and the rest of us should leave, and that too is their right. I am certain that as time shows these positions to be corrupt, the numbers of such people will dwindle until there is an insignificant amount of them. But for that to happen people like me need to let folks like you spew your rhetoric all you want while countering with facts and reason. It is a long term goal, but in my mind that is what our system is all about.

So long as we're discussing this, does anyone else find it odd that The US is holding Saddams Lawyers captive, and the inept bueracracy in charge of iraq is witholding the full court opinion for a week before providing it to the defense lawyers that have only 30 days to appeal?

Assuming this is a legal trial, why would the officials in charge be witholding information and imprisoning Lawyers for the defense?

The Saddam's lawyers "under US confinement" in Baghdad

Gosh Joe - You sure are verbose.

"all of them I've read are optimistic"

"but that doesnt even begin to portray an accurate picture of morale"

There is no civil war in Iraq - Terrorists want to control the country and I guess you would prefer we let 'em...


Kerry has repeatedly dissed the troops and it started when he got back from Nam. - His handlers say he mis-spoke. His opponents say he spoke from his heart.


Re: 7th and 8th - Proof once again that some people have no sense of humor. Unlike our Minnesotian troops in Iraq.


Ask the Iraqi court why they have not provided the full transcript. Maybe they are rewriting it like many of the U.S. liberal courts rewrite American law.
