A few days ago, Saddam Hussein has been hanged. Bush s decision scandalizes me, not only because I do think that the death sentence wasn t entirely justified, but also because I am very much worried about the consequences of Saddam Hussein s hanging.
Of course, Saddam Hussein has been an horrible dictator. Many civilians suffered under his political regime.
My point is: if Saddam had to be judged, it should have been by his own folks. Considering the fact that the Islam hardly dissociates religion, finances and politics, he also should have been granted the right to be judged by a Muslim government.
President Bush never found evidence of chemical weapons in Iraq. But he allowed himself the right to invade the country for his own hegemony benefits.
A few days ago, Bush was spending some comfortable holidays in his Texan ranch. He thought a lot about politics. The thought of a withdrawal of the American troops in Iraq never ever crossed his mind, though.
Young and even underage Americans are killed nearly every day for Bush s wrong policy and I really hate that thought.
Iraqi civilians suffer from atrocities committed by some American soldiers (who act that way to obey orders) too.
I think that politicians should put an end to this stupid Iraqi war instead of encouraging it. It is quite obvious that politicians like Bush and Blair only have their own interests in mind while civilians will have to pay the consequences.
Some Muslim fanatics have sworn vengeance for Saddam s hanging.
Who will pay the consequences? American and other European civilians might pay the highest price.
While airplanes and subways might explode someday soon as the consequences of terrorist acts, George W and his wife Laura will enjoy a safe and comfortable dinner at the White House.
How can those people look at themselves in the mirror and think they are acting in favor of justice?
God, have mercy on the numerous innocent victims of the Iraqi war. Let it come to an end for the world s safety.
