Do you think Saddam Hissein is receiving a fair trial?
I'm about to write a political feature article for a news-site and it will be on Husseins trial.
I just wanted to see what do you guys think of this trial he is receiving is it fair or not?
I was surprised to read that the UN Human Rights Watch were actually defending Saddam and I got this impression that the UN assumes Hussein is the victim or something.
I mean has the world gone mad - this man delivered a brutal brand of justice to Iraqis during his 24-year reign, he should be glad he's getting any day in court and didn't wind up like his two sons when cornered, dead on a mortuary slab.
He carried out a massive massacre at Dujail - killing so many innocent ppl - and the fact that these bodies were actually found - i have no doubt that he and his men did it. Besides the witness testemonies are extremly powerfull.
So anyway what do you guys think of all this - your opinions will really be usefull.
btw, another small thing that really annoys me abput Saddam and this trial is the fact that he is being so rude to the judges.
I know this is kinda of topic but the way he ALWAYS complains about smething - like about having to walk up the stairs in chains because the elevator was broken, the way he prays in court when he's acting moody, the way he calls the judge names and points his finger in the air in a threatening
motion - and then you have these Judges that are like totally appeasing his wishes - I think he is receiving more then a fair trial.
