The Dog’s Bollocks

Truth is like a dog’s bollocks – pretty obvious if you care to look.

Thou shalt not kill

The hasty execution of Saddam Hussein is an obesenity – as is the spectacle of so-called Christian leaders like Bush and Howard welcoming and applauding the event. Whatever happened to the first commandment? Or is that now non-core?

With Hussein’s execution he cannot be tried for far greater crimes such as the gassing of the Kurds. But that’s the whole point – the US didn’t want to be called as witness to confirm that they supplied the chemical WMDs used by Hussein, or that they funded his regime during many of his atrocious crimes against humanity.

Couldn’t have that now, could we? After all, it’s always been about the fact that Iraq has the world’s second largest oil reserves, and the US has always acted to ensure that its government is friendly to US investors and consumers.

The US set up Hussein to secure access to Iraqi oil. When he no longer wanted to play ball, they took him out with the notion of replacing him with a regime/democracy calulated to be more accommodating to US interests.

The rest is spin and deceit.
