Bye, Saddaam

As was suspected a few days ago, we now have our November Surprise.

Saddaam has been sentenced to death.

Oh, and be sure to vote Republican! :::groan:::

    Isn’t it something that we are the ones who put Saddam in power, gave him his biological and chemical weapons, supported him in his war of aggression against Iran (while at the same time supplying arms to Iran, see Iran Contra Scandal). We even gave the thumbs up to attack Kuwait for slant drilling and a dispute over territory. We double crossed him like we do all the dictators we place in power. Manuel Noriega, and others are prime examples.

    And don’t forget that Saddam had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks. That was an inside job.

    For those that haven’t yet heard, the appeals court upheld the ruling to hang Saddam.

    Of course they would. Imagine what would have happened if they didn’t uphold the ruling. This court was a sham from the beginning.

    Note the timing though. Politics is all about timing. Saddam was sentenced quite quickly back in October, conveniently just a few weeks before the November election. Now he will be executed just moments before Bush’s State of the Union address in January, the surge Bush will implement (against his military advisers’s best advice), all to take away the spotlight from the Democrats taking control of Congress, the agenda, and most importantly, as this is the key to politics, taking control of media attention.

    Dan,

    Reminds me of what FDR once said:

    In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, it was planned that way. (Unseen Hand, p. 7)
