The Killing Of Saddam
The trial of Saddam Hussein for genocide was cut short so that he could be hanged.
He was hanged for "crimes against humanity". These crimes against humanity were the execution of 140 people following an assassination attempt. A hundred and forty killings would be a low figure for a week under the 'democracy' which has replaced the 'tyranny'.
Sir Jeremy Greenstock was British Ambassador to the UN in 2003, and he helped to peddle the lie that France had said it would veto a second resolution on Iraq regardless of circumstances. (What France said was that it would not support a resolution authorising invasion until the team of UN Weapons Inspectors completed their inspection and made a report.)
Sir Jeremy was interviewed on BBC Radio 4 on 30 December, the day Saddam was hanged. Asked if he thought the trial was fair, he replied that Saddam's guilt was so clear that people were not going to quibble over how the verdict was arrived at. And that, of course, is the rationale of Lynch Law.
Sir Jeremy, who was Ambassador in Iraq for a while under the Occupation, was asked if he thought Iraq was a democracy. He said that certain desirable things, such as law and order and civil institutions, were missing, "but not the fact of democracy itself".
So "democracy itself" can exist without law and order or civil institutions, in a situation of general mayhem.
BBC television reporter, Matt Frei, reporting from Washington on the same day, said:
"American soldiers on the ground in Baghdad are having to deal with the inheritance of Saddam Hussein, and that is a country in meltdown".
Hitler said he learned propaganda methods from England. The public should be treated as children and told lies, the bigger the better. And this is a real whopper.
Iraq is in meltdown because its apparatus of state was systematically destroyed by the US/UK invasion force (with marginal Irish assistance), and the religious communities in Iraq were incited against each other. There was media talk of civil war within weeks of the invasion; it was said that the Shia had been kept down by the Sunni under the tyranny and should have their day, and general looting and destruction was approved of as a sign of liberty.
Political philosophers over many centuries were of the opinion that democracy, free action by the populace, inevitably led to chaos. The US/UK invasion force (authorised after the event by the UN) seemed determined to prove it.
The farce of Saddam's trial was an Ameranglian, not an Iraqi, affair. He was only handed over to fundamentalist Muslims for killing the day before he was killed. This was done during the genocide trial, and so that the genocide trial could not continue. And so the Kurds had to be cheated out of 'justice' before American complicity in the alleged genocide became an issue. It was a genocide committed in defence of our civilisation—one of many. And not one of the greatest. After all the Kurds still exist, and are governing themselves and others.
And the exterminated Tutsis are governing the Hutus. But none of the people we exterminated—and right-thinking Irish of the present generation are identifying with Anglo-Saxondom—ended up governing us. When we do it, we do it right.
