    Okay, even the rah-rah-Bushtastics have to be upset about this one.

    No way. In the event that we didn't put him on trial, we would've been sending a message to the world that the terrorists won.:think:

    The only thing I see wrong with the trial is the crime he is being tried for. Why we let the new governmet not try him on the gassing of the Kurds I will never know. This charge of ordering retaliation for failed atempt on his life is far less interesting in the eyes of the world. If the images of what he had done to the Kurds wer plastered on the news everynight people might be a little more interested in seeing him gone, and in gone I mean dead, like how we should have "found" him.

    Any of the Bush-ophiles want to comment on this one?

    N8, want to complain about the liberal media bias?

    Yeah...this is totally Bush's fault. He should've completed law school by now and relieved the head prosecutor and assigned himself to the case. I cant believe how incompetent he is.

    Yeah putting him on trial in the Hague would have stopped a lot of his tactics dead...... only

    A your country refuses to acknowledge the ICC's authority
    B The hague would not give the death sentance Saddam so richly deserves.

    Nobody deserves the death sentence.

    But, point A is well taken.
