THE DEATH OF A TYRANT – UPDATED WITH LATEST VIDEO

A fan of Hitler and Mussolini, the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein has been executed by hanging. As previously said, I am an opponent of the death penalty and vengeance, but I think there are exceptions when it comes to brutal tyrants who committ war crimes, extermin millions and sow death and destruction on this earth. It’s important to remind that Saddam’s death sentence was carried out only after a long and fair trial where he was granted the right to hire lawyers and defend himself although he couldn’t deny his crimes. The trial was fair and, in his way to execution, he was accompanied by his “spiritural guide”, a Sunni imam. These things were always denied to his victims, who were brutally executed without a due process, let alone being allowed a spiritual guide. Plus, unlike Mussolini, who was hanged in public, Saddam was hanged in a room. Although the majority of Italians said they agreed with the execution of the Iraqi butcher, the political class, above all the governing coalition, seems to forget that they never condemned the public hanging of Mussolini. Yet, today they seethe screaming “horror of horrors!”. One member of the government even went on hunger strike against the execution! And the President of the Chamber of Deputies – a leader of a communist party and a close friend of Castro and the Chinese butchers – said today that “what we saw is horror”. Saddam slaughtered 4 milion people, among which Iraqi Kurds, Shias and Iranians. No matter what our opinion on death penalty is, Saddam’s death  fills us with joy.

UPDATE: Here is the latest video of Saddam’s execution, including the moment when he takes the fall. Watch it here.

Nuovo video rilasciato dalla tv irachena, che mostra saddam sul patibolo ripreso da un’altra angolazione, e nel quale lo si sente pronunciare la tipica frase islamica “dio è grande, maometto è il suo profeta”.

Dichiarazione di un curdo iracheno: la fine di Saddam

I politici italiani, come sempre, danno sempre il peggio di sè quanto a ipocrisia e falsità. Da una parte la sinistra, con i comunisti che per natura hanno la violenza e l’odio nel sangue, sbraitano perchè il loro amico ha pagato per i crimini compiuti (nonostante non era comunista, nonostante abbia massacrato anche numerosi comunisti iracheni, nonostante fosse ammiratore di Hitler e Mussolini); per non  parlare dei vari Panella che, ormai in preda alle classiche demenze da anziano settantenne, non toccano cibo perchè hanno ucciso saddam e se la prende con Bush, come solo i dementi del partito radicale filo-zapateriano sanno fare. Dall’altra, una “destra” che fa finta di essere rammaricata pur di non perdere i voti di coloro che sono contro la pena capitale anche se si tratta dei peggiori tiranni e terroristi. Sappiamo benissimo che la cosidetta ‘destra’ italiana (che di destra non ha nulla), è giustamente compiaciuta dell’eliminazione di uno che ha seminato morte e distruzione in questo pianeta. Solo che non ha le palle per dire ciò che pensa. Ecco la schifezza della classe politica italiana, descritta sopra in poche ma eloquenti parole. Il resto sono solo chiacchiere. Non che l’Europa intera si sia comportata meglio, ma ormai i saggi tra noi sanno di che pasta è fatta quest’Europa.

    I haven’t watched the Fox video you linked. There was another one under Sic Semper Tyranus post in Babalú Blog that had a very grainy video and actually showed the hanging itself. I’m not sure if that helps…
