For just one of his crimes and subject to appeal Saddam Hussein has been sentenced to death by hanging by an Iraqi independent Court of Justice, which is very unpleasant for him and too late for his victims, who didn't get the privilege of a fair trial! But no European p.c. or Christian sensitivities in the verdict. You'd think in the West they'd be happy with this feat of statehood, but considering the lack of enthusiasm for the democratically elected Iraqi government which nobody has said, but is by silent understanding considered a neo-con propped up troupe of puppets unworthy of the label "decent government" (read: Liberal, Enlightened), the independent court and it's verdict will surely be painted from the same ink pot, I'll foretell.

It reminds me of the people who went to Iraq before the war (of liberation) to protect Saddam Hussein by human shield, like the meanwhile deceased enfant terrible of Dutch public opinion Willem Oltmans. Another of those is the former British Labour politician George Galloway. How people can so end up on the wrong side of history by misplaced loyalty to a brutal tyrant, is frankly beyond me.
