I think it's expected I will write on Saddam's execution, the fact that all media and blogs are talking about surely will not allow me to say something new, anyway I have to state five important points:
1. I do not know if Saddam was guilty or not, but for sure I can doubt the court's legality, the only fact it was established under a military occupation, the political pressure and the predetermined condemn, let the trial nearer to a miserable mise-en-scene than a good start for the new Iraqi jurisprudence.
2. Only Israel and Iran were really 'happy' of the killing of Saddam. Arab people must be aware of their plans, and what the US (unconsciously) do in favor or Iranian Ayatollahs.
3. The hanging today, the day of sacrifice, a religious festivity was an obvious taunt of Muslims around the world.
4. Today, there was a good lesson for third world leaders (especially Arabs); your good relations with Americans will not be so enduring, the time US administration will have bored of yours presence, they will probably hang you. I remember our political science professor used to say: In politics, there are no friends and no enemies forever.
5. Saddam trial and execution were not on International Standards as a Mr. Rubaie said, they were not reflecting the dreadfully advertised human rights, which US tried to export in Iraq, so was Saddam recorded at the moment of death? Will his corpse be threw somewhere far from his parents? Such things are minimal as compared with the heinous acts of America in Iraq. I ask who will sentence to death the responsible of more than 700000 Iraqi victims in this war. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
