Saddam Hussein Execution
We all can agree that Sadam was a bad man but we cannot deny that the reason why he was removed from power and put to death by the US makes no sense.
He was charged for the death with crimes against humanity for the killing of 148 Shi'ite men after a 1982 after an alleged botched assassination attempt. “1982”, if he was that bad then why did the Reagan Administration removed Iraq from the State terrorism sponsorship list in 1982. Despite the evidence that he did support terrorism abroad, the removal made Iraq eligible for U.S. dual-use and military technology.
Iraq began using chemical weapons against Iranian troops in 1982, and significantly increased chemical weapon use in 1983. Reagan’s Secretary of State, George Shultz, reported Iraq using chemical weapons on Iranian military personnel "drifted in" at the year’s end. A declassified CIA report, possibly written in late 1987, notes Iraq's use of mustard gas in August 1983, giving further suggestion that the SD and/or National Security Council (NSC) was well aware of Iraq's use of CW at this time.
The truth is that Hussein and the United States were bed fellows and interestingly no one from the Reagan administration have not been brought to stand alongside Sadam on the same charges. Instead the US and the new Iraqi puppet regime have buried the truth of America being a willing assistant at the madness of Hussein’s reign in the eighties. The execution of Sadam is clear evidence that this government has lulled the masses to sleep.
It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out if Sadam was incarnate of evil and Donald Rumsfield was over there during the “reign of terror” shaking hands with the former leader. I agree that the man was evil but he had help from the US. I believe Donald should be brought to trial along with any living member of the Regan administration and have them explain their actions towards Hussein’s regime back in the eighties. Unfortunately justice will go unrewarded and the truth will never be told and the true perpetrators escaped the gallows.
