A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Another Good Argument


For some reason, justice and death seem to be inextricably entwined in the teeny tiny mind of George Bush the Lesser. Otherwise, why is he encouraging the new model Iraqi government to kill Saddam Hussein?

Bush himself is fond of death. Aside from dealing it to Iraqis on a wholesale basis and to Americans who unlike him are brave enough to volunteer to serve their country on the front lines, he signed over a hundred death warrants as Texas governor without a murmur. Let's face it: Mr. "Culture of Life", he ain't.

I have stated elsewhere my opposition to killing Saddam Hussein. Sure, it's probably what he deserves. But thanks to this failure on the part of the current management to put in place a modern justice system, Hussein is apparently looking forward to his execution:
"He told them he was happy he would meet his death at the hands of his enemies and be a martyr, not just languish in jail."

--Via Yahoo! News

Forgive me if, aside from fundamentally opposing capital punishment, I also view with disfavour the creation of martyrs for internicene slaughter.

The deepest irony, aside from the fact that the people who delivered Hussein up to be hanged are his former allies, is that Hussein had no use for religion until he was dethroned.

Now the Sunni minority will use him as a martyr and an example of their "persecution" at the hands of the Shiites. Regardless of whether said persecution actually happens or not.

From this will come inspired Jihadis and suicide bombers. And the final bitter pill is that as they pull their triggers, some of them will be mouthing the names of the great martyrs.

Like Saddam Hussein.

Who should languish in jail, ideally at The Hague, until he rots.

Apparently sometime this weekend is the proposed D-Day. Just one more statistic to be added to the macarbe list of those who have died for Bush's stupidity!
Personally I would like him to be jailed for the rest of his life, but brought out on public holidays, paraded around town squares and then put in the stocks for the rest of the day. A lifetime of being a target for rotten tomatoes seems much more satisfying than a quick execution!

Hey Metromutant!

Season's greetings to you and the Mme. I like Archie's comments as I've always been fond of the stocks. I think Bush could use a little treatment on the racks, too, to perhaps stretch his feeble mind beyond the 52 IQ level. Oh wait, that's shock therapy I'm thinking about. That might work as well.

Rock on MM
