Saddam just got hanged for signing 148 death warrants - Bush signed 152 death warrants
http://www.khaleejtimes.ae/DisplayArticleNew.asp?xfile=...

<snip>Saddam and others were convicted of murder in the killings of 148 Shia Muslims from an Iraqi town where assassins tried to kill Saddam in 1982.

Death warrants Saddam 148, Bush 152

The difference between Saddam Hussein and George Bush is that both signed death warrants but only one of them is in the dock. Let us draw some parallels between these two men and reach some conclusions.

Saddam Hussein, we now hear, signed the death warrants of 148 Shiite villagers who had risen up against him in Dujail in 1982, for which Saddam Hussein sits in the dock and could face the death penalty. George Bush, in his six-year tenure as Governor of Texas, signed 152 death warrants, a record for any governor of any state in the history of the USA. An example of what George Bush is capable of is provided by the signing of the death warrant of Terry Washington, a mentally retarded man of 33 with the brain of a seven-year-old. Pleas of clemency were denied after a hearing which lasted barely half an hour.

Saddam Hussein was derided because he invaded a sovereign nation in the event, Kuwait, which was stealing Iraqs oil by cross-drilling, and which had been warned against this practice. George Bush invaded a sovereign nation Iraq, based on lies and deception.

George Bush accused Saddam Hussein of lying when he claimed he did not have Weapons of Mass Destruction. This man stiffed the world, he said. We know where they are, the Bush regime said. Rumsfeld said they were In Baghdad and Tikrit and north, south, east and west of there. Powell said, They are being driven around the desert, in vehicles.

But the one who was telling the truth was Saddam Hussein and the one who stiffed the world was George Bush. Where are the WMD?

4. Bush sealed the fate of 655,000 Iraqis and 3000 Americans -- and untold
numbers of injured and maimed.

5. Oh please no death penalty for Boy George
No matter how vile a person he is, I would like to see him live a long life in a prison cell...it is the only way to punish such crimes.

10. The only time bush granted clemency was for a serial killer, Henry Lee Lucas.
Bizarre, but absolutely true. bush has a real love/hate relationship with death. Deep down, he admires people who kill with impunity.

The only reason he pushed for Saddam's death is for political gain. I bet he's fondling Saddam's revolver right now.

13. Could you clarify that?

Saddam Hussein, we now hear, signed the death warrants of 148 Shiite villagers who had risen up against him in Dujail in 1982 (...)

Do we now hear that every one of those 148 Shiite villagers had "risen up against" Saddam Hussein in Dujail? Also, why no comment on the mental capacity of each of those 148 villagers? You raised the issue of mental capacity when you spoke of someone whose death warrant was signed by GWB.
