18. Exactly. They can't just come home when they want to....
Like the MERCENARIES and WAR PROFITEERS.

No matter how utterly, obviously POINTLESS their mission is.

I hope they're digging in deep right now. Some serious shit
is about to hit the fan.

36. Saddam was clutching a Koran throughout the reading of the verdicts.
Never being a particularly religious man, people were surprised to see him praying earlier in the day.

20. Must be hung within 30 days after his appeals are turned down...
There's no limit on the length of time the appellate judges have to review the case file, but the statute states that a death sentence should be carried out within 30 days after all appeals are exhausted.

34. My thoughts, exactly. What a lame dufus this guy is!
As tho this was an example of a proper trial! Cripe, the lawyer was ejected before he even got to say hardly anything! Can't wait to hear Mr. Clark's response to that!

35. Wild West Justice
"We're gonna give ya a fair trial, and THEN we're gonna Hang Ya.."

Bush must be so proud, gee and he tried to kill Saddam ten minutes before he officially graduated from a serial killer to a Mass Murderer with his little Shock and Awe treat for people SO BEAT DOWN, they had NOTHING to lose but their lives.

REMEMBER, when Bush gave the Order for Shock and Awe that 50% of the population of Iraq was 15 years of age or YOUNGER.

Foley only wants to fuck youngsters, Bush LOVES to KILL THEM.

Anyone know if Bush has Killed More people than Saddam ever did? Despite the numbers being bandied about, I'm pretty damn sure he'd FUcking CLOSE to beating Saddam, and now even has HIS OWN TORTURE ROOMS.

HERE is a Work I made in Flash in Feb of 2003 to PROTEST Bush possibly using Shock and Awe on those poor KIDS there:

Pass it around as you see fit.

37. The USA has brought about the deaths of 650,000 Iraqis...
I think it's claimed that Saddam's official tally was 300,000, but that's from the MSM so it may be exaggerated or totally wrong. Neither one of those butchers kept any official record, but I believe W wins the prize.
