Saddam’s Fate Is Not The Real Issue
Saddam’s Fate Is Not The Real Issue
Whether Saddam’s lives or dies is something that the Iraqi people could care less for at this time. The people of Iraq should not be distracted or become even more divided over Saddam’s fate. They should rather be focusing on bringing their country together in order to put an end to the bloodshed, which is claiming more innocent lives, more than those who were killed at the hands of Saddam. The country is in ruins and on the verge of sectarian war, thanks to the American taste of freedom. Saddam was removed to be replaced by a puppet and ineffective regime that is not able even to secure itself, let alone securing and protecting an embattled nation torn apart by sectarian violence.

Whether Saddam’s lives or dies is something that the Iraqi people could care less for at this time. The people of Iraq should not be distracted or become even more divided over Saddam’s fate. They should rather be focusing on bringing their country together in order to put an end to the bloodshed, which is claiming more innocent lives, more than those who were killed at the hands of Saddam. The country is in ruins and on the verge of sectarian war, thanks to the American taste of freedom. Saddam was removed to be replaced by a puppet and ineffective regime that is not able even to secure itself, let alone securing and protecting an embattled nation torn apart by sectarian violence.

Saddam Hussein was a dictator who led a brutal regime, which oppressed and killed its own people, like many other regimes still in power across the Middle East. It does not really matter whether a U.S- coerced court, that lacks the very basic legal standards, to order him to die or spends the rest of his life behind bars. Saddam was found guilty of crimes against humanity in the people’s court long before when was still even in bed with the US administration. Overall, I believe Saddam Hussein should be retried before a real and impartial court that follows the international legal standards, not that kind of mockery trial the world witnessed.
