SADDAM HANGED FOR BUSH’S CRIMES

Image ‘Copyleft’ by Carlos Latuff

Below you will find enough evidence  that George W. Bush is the enemy of the Iraqi people, not Saddam Hussein as he would like us to believe…

While the majority of Iraqis know that the current Sunni-Shiites tension did not exist before 2003, no one can deny that after five years of U.S. occupation, sectarian tension is now a reality. Sectarianism is another disaster that was brought to Iraq by the war and occupation of Iraq.


The U.S.-led invasion did not only destroy the Baath political regime, it also annihilated the entire public sector including education, health care, food rations, social security, and the armed forces. The Iraqi public sector was a great example of how millions of Iraqis: Arabs and Kurds, Sunnis and Shiites, Muslims and Christians, religious and secular, all worked together in running the country. The myth that the former Iraqi government was a “Sunni-led dictatorship” was created by the U.S. government. Even the Iraqi political regime was not “Sunni-led,” let alone the rest of the public sector. A good way to debunk this fairy tale is through a close look at the famous deck of cards of the 55 most wanted Iraqi leaders. The cards had the pictures of Saddam, his two sons, and the rest of the political leadership which most Iraqis would recognize as the heads of the political regime. What is noteworthy is that 36 of the 55 were Shiites. In fact, the two vice presidents were a Christian and a Shiites Kurd.


The above is an excerpt from THIS article…


Tens of thousands of Iraqi civilians also have been killed since the U.S.-led invasion on March 20, 2003, although estimates of a specific figure vary widely because of the difficulty in collecting accurate information.


One widely respected tally by Iraq Body Count, which collects figures based mostly on media reports, estimates that 82,349 to 89,867 Iraqi civilians have lost their lives in the conflict.


That excerpt is from THIS report…


And in the following video, one can see the continuing harassment and murder of those civilians by the American troops…One can’t help but wonder if perhaps the wrong man stood on those gallows pictured above.

    I’m fairly certain the last part of this video is not even in Iraq. Nor is it a convincing shot of a rape murder scene, not to mention the house looks totally Western. However, having said that, I’m not so naive as to think that type atrocity doesn’t go on. War is a license to commit all sorts of dehumanizing acts, for that you are right, it should be George W. Bush and everyone who voted for this war. For they are all war criminals.

    “We can choose to use our growing knowledge to enslave people in ways never dreamed of before, depersonalizing them, controlling them by means so carefully selected that they will perhaps never be aware of their loss of personhood.”

    So the ‘good witch of the West’ said, “the surge is working and peace and domestic tranquility have arrived in Iraq! However, don’t look behind the green curtain cause that’s where we keep the bodies. Horribly mutilated tortured bodies! Abu Ghraib is a dream and any/or all rumors to the contrary are strictly that, rumors! The Iraqi people LOVE what we have done for them and don’t think otherwise. Don’t listen to the Iraqi people themselves as, they seem to think they’re still living in the Baath stone age. Yeah! So for now and the IMMEDIATE future, death is good. Torture is good! Civil war is good! The utter destruction of the ‘cradle of civilization’ is good and ANYONE that might conjecture differently is an uncivil unpatriotic butt-wipe and simply can’t see the forest for the fires!”
    Saddam Hussein was HUNG for being not nearly as war criminal as George Bush. We should also include Tony ‘lap doggie’ Blair and John ‘the roo’ Howard.
    It is written, “thou shall NOT kill.” However it is painfully obvious that God was sorely mistaken.

    I’m totally and utterly disgusted and to think my own Prime Minister, Tony Blair, helped to authourise this savagery.

    He and George Bush should be tried for war crimes.

    My heart goes out to the poor Iraqi people with whom I’ve only friendship for.

    Hi Steve.

    Of course on whole i fully agree with you, but from the initiation of war in Iraq MORE THAN ONE MILLION Iraqis have been killed (and not 89,000)

    The survey undertaken by the UK Opinion Business Research (ORB) found more than one million dead as a result of violence through August 2007

    http://www.opinion.co.uk/Newsroom_details.aspx?NewsId=88

    http://psychoanalystsopposewar.org/blog/2008/01/28/orb-polling-firm-reissues-iraq-mortality-estimate-of-one-million-dead/

    The results of this ORB poll are consistent with the results of a study published in the British medical journal the Lancet. (October 2006: 655,000 excess deaths, and about 601,000 of them were due to violent causes )

    http://www.medialens.org/alerts/06/061018_democracy_and_debate.php

    ( Juan Cole, who surely isn’t an extremist, commented, “The combination of the two, however, makes the Lancet study’s conclusions seem unassailable and if anything conservative.”)

    Even the World Health Organization-Iraqi government study- that grossly underestimated the death toll in Iraq – found an estimated 151,000 excess violent deaths from the U.S-led invasion in March 2003 through June 2006 , when compared to violent deaths in the prewar period. http://www.counterpunch.org/andrew01122008.html

    The Iraq Body count figures aren’t an estimate, but a simple count based on English-language news media. IBC doesn’t monitor Iraqi deaths, but only English-language news media media reports of Iraqi civilian deaths as a result of violence.

    IBC collects records of violent civilian deaths reported by two different English-language news media sources operating in Iraq (and it doesn’t even collect all of them). Epidemiologists report that this type of study typically captures around 5 per cent of deaths during high levels of violence, such as exists in Iraq. The mainstream media are continuing to use figures provided by the website Iraq Body Count (IBC) to sell the public a number for total post-invasion deaths of Iraqis that is perhaps 5-10% of the true death toll.

    And IBC does nothing to correct misuse of their figures by public officials or media organizations. Moreover, Iraq Body Count Co-Founder John Sloboda ( a professor of psychology of music) tried tirelessly to smear the Lancet studies . The amateurs that run IBC went on and on and on discreding the studies by the some of best professional epidemiologists of the world.

    IBC serves only the purpose of providing and underestimation of iraqi deaths to media-government propaganda campaign aimed to minimize the iraqi genocide. For this reason, Iraq Body Count is quoted and endorsed by the worst pro-war and neocon media:

    http://www.thecatsdream.com/blog/2007/09/action-alert-propaganda-train-called.htm

    http://www.thecatsdream.com/blog/2007/10/business-as-usual-iraq-body-count-human.htm

    IBC and its figures are the main instrument used by the mainstream media to hide the real human cost of the iraqi war.

    Unfortunately, also many people in good faith uses IBC, because they believe that it is a reliable source. Instead, IBC is a counterproductive – if not fraudulent – enterprise, that just plays into the hand of supporters of the war by producing a gross understatement of the true number of casualties.

    Hi
    I see the article is still using the discredited IBC figures which woefully underreport the number of Iraqi dead. Media lens and others have long criticised IBC figures. Back in 2006:

    ‘A heated debate is being conducted between Iraq Body Count, a website which claims to keep track of civilian deaths in Iraq, and Media Lens, an unofficial, independent media watchdog.
    Media Lens accuses Iraq Body Count of underestimating the number of civilian deaths in Iraq. IBC accuses Media Lens of bullying tactics.

    Newsnight invited the two sides to give their versions of the debate. First, in a BBC interview the man behind Iraq Body Count, John Sloboda outlined his case.

    Read the interview here.
    The following text is an unedited copy of Media Lens’ response.

    ——————————————————————————–

    Iraq Body Count (IBC) is the most commonly cited source for civilian deaths in Iraq since the March 2003 invasion. Politicians and journalists, particularly of the pro-war variety, have leapt on IBC’s figures precisely to downplay the tragedy of the civilian death toll.

    They are using the lowest number they can find to suggest, for example, that the results of the invasion have been less severe than the consequences of leaving Saddam Hussein in power. But as Stephen Soldz, Director of the Center for Research, Evaluation, and Program Development at the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis, has noted:

    [T]here is simply no reason to believe that even a large fraction of Iraqi civilian combat-related deaths are ever reported in the Western media, much less, have the two independent reports necessary to be recorded in the IBC database. Do these few agencies really have enough Iraqi reporters on retainer to cover the country? Are these reporters really able comprehensively to cover deaths in insurgent-held parts of Iraq? How likely is it that two reporters from distinct media outlets are going to be present at a given site where deaths occur? How many of the thousands of US bombings have been investigated by any reporter, Western or Iraqi? Simply to state these questions is to emphasize the fragmentary nature of the reporting that occurs and thus the limitations of the IBC database.”

    The sad part of the whole matter though, – the ongoing rape of Iraq, by the owners of the Federal Reserve – is, that virtually all of the world’s leaders… including the pope of course… seem to be members of the same bloody society of Zionist perverts. They all seem to enjoy what is going on in Iraq, Palestine, Tibet, Afghanistan, Somalia, etc… and some European political leaders have even participate actively OVER YEARS!

    To that sad part though, comes the fact that US voters are about to elect still another “useful political pervert” as their leader… this time named Obama, Cane or Clinton… showing clearly that the madness is not only a question about reprobate leaders.

    But!… writing about the insanity in a Blog like this however, will not change anything. It only serves the same purpose as screaming to a tree deep in the woods… you get rid of some frustration for a short while… and that’s it.
    -“Never underestimate the power of stupidity,” some guy wrote, and another one wrote about “Bread and Circus”… I think a quick look at the newspapers being sold, tells it all. :-)

    Personally, I feel so sad and disappointed to see and watch over the television the secular conflict in Iraq. I am miles away from Iraq and the Iraqi people, but my heart sores because I stand the same belief with them, Islam. Divide and rule is an effective tactic for the enemy to win. It is being used everywhere. Even here in Mindanao. I pray to Allah that we would not fall into that trap or if we have fallen into that trap, I pray harder He’ll guide us to the right path for justice and prosperity. For in this world, we ought to live for justice.

    The people that need to be arrested for war crimes are the international bankers based in London, Paris, Berlin and New York. Arrest the Rothschilds. Oppenheimers, Warburgs, Schiffs, Goldmans, Rockefellars and every other criminal banking family responsible for the murder of more than 100 millions people in the 20th century.

    This ultra wealthy human scum needs to be held accountable.

    Who financed then turned on Napoleon ? Who financed Hitler ? Who is financing the military in Myanmar ? Who financed Pol Pot in Cambodia ? Who financed Mao in China ? The bankers and Israel are enemies to all non-zionist hunankind.. They have the mental sickness that anything that makes money is okay. War makes massive amounts of money for the banks so it is okay. These criminals need to undergo a people’s arrest and the same treatment the French Monarchy endured in the 1700s and the Tsar in Russia endured in the 20th century.

    barbarians! seriously, that scene where they body searched those two little girls!!! a man would be thrown in jail faster than he could blink if he tried something like that in either the UK and I would imagine the US too!!!! i couldnt watch anymore… it was too traumatic.

    but to point out a little detail. Iraq was kept under control under Saddam, the cohesive society was not necessarily natural or accepted by everyone. Remember that the Kurds rebelled, and so did the Shia of the south. But yes, none of this mayhem existed. Certainly women were safe! they were not at constant risk of being raped, kidnapped to be sold into prostitution, or being killed for dressing contrary to what some groups consider appropriate.

    - Well spoken “Prophet”… well spoken!
    – The only three things needed to start and wage war is; money, money and money. And, money (profit) is also the sole name of the game… war being the biggest racket of them all.
    – An yes… a good start would be to eradicate the finance scumbags, before rounding up their willing pervert conscripts, giving room at last, for an honest captain at the helm. However, “Prohpet”, that shall forever remain nothing but wishful thinking I’m afraid.
    – Bush-Bush-Clinton-Clinton-Bush-Bush… and the possibility of a new Clinton-Clinton!… and men like Ralph Nader have been (and are!) on hand all the time?!
    – Naahhh!… there are far to few of you and me “Prophet”. And, let’s face it… even good old Zimmerman (four days older than me :-) put on “pinstriped suits” after a while, when the money really started rolling in. His poetry and music changed too. To me he sort of faded away… along with the hippies and flower people… who also started using pistriped suits.

    – By the way, have you looked into the European version of the US Fed. Reserve? After screwing USA and the rest of the world (for the better part of a century) with their counterfeit green back, the same criminals did it again- They created still another fiat money, the Euro. :-)
    (Look up http://www.ecb.int/ecb/orga/independence/html/index.en.html)

    – Within a few months from now, the Zionist bankers will have brought their fiat dollar tumbleing down to a level, thru their financing of China and other low cost labour countries, the creation of the Euro and the ongoing rape of Iraq etc.- Then the time has come for them to start buying up the rest of the US… i.e. the small part they do not possess already that is. (A process much like what they created in the big depression, only this time they have a new powerful fiat currency ready for their slaughter.;-)

    – Well “Prophet”, the same bankers who owns the right to produce USD out of nothing, owns the right to produce the Euro out of nothing. And if that is not virtual absolute control of the world… nothing is.

    – Now as through this world I ramble,
    I see lots of funny men.
    Some will rob you with a six-gun,
    and some with a fountain pen.
    – Woody Guthrie wrote that… got any ideas about how to round up an eradicate the criminals who rob all of us with their fountain pens?

    It’s a movie with two tripod mounted cameras, professional boom boys capturing the audio (good job -not an ounce of flare from the obvious wind) -Plus the camera from inside the car (again with perfect audio overlaid and uncut when edited together with the two tripod mounted cams) Those soldiers must have exchanged addresses to get that car tape??? This is nothing more than amature Hollywood… Unfortunately, I believe a SCENES like the one portrayed do happen… But when it’s put out as an actual occurrence (with no notation that it’s a reenactment) it only serves to discredit the very plight they’re trying to bring awareness to. I hate the media because they fabricate stories. -Please don’t stoop to their level.

    I think this video only really shows a glimpse of the true reality of the genocide taking place in Iraq. The American’s in Iraq are in fact children of evil sent to secure oil. What is America really thinking? Do they think that they will always remain a world super-power, just like the Roman’s did, or the Egyptians, or the Ottomans? These scenes that show degrading of a nation for pleasure will remain long after the total decline of US power, and if the power in ME increases then only god knows what type of torment will descend upon US. Today this video is showing Iraqs on the receiving end in some Iraqi town or city, but tomorrow it could be Chinese, Russians or Irani forces in Washington, New York or Virginia where the US citizens are on the receiving end. This is a case of US digging its own grave, where it’s making such video’s to show how evil it really is to the rest of the world, and if a nation watching this would surly put themselves in the Iraqi position and feel for them thus automatically hating US.

    What goes around comes around, God true will not bless America.

    Just imagine if this is possible for some of you wise guys what the Palestinian Arab people have been going through since the settlers moved into Palestine in 1948.
    The same brutality and tactics are used against helpless civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan but the mass media is pushing it all under the rug. Bush and Cheney must stand trial for war crimes and if an attack against Iran is unleashed they must be taken to the gallows. Let us all see if these two cowards can act as bravely as Saddam Hussein did.
