Ali al-Majid: another Ba'ath official murdered while the world watched
One-by-one, the legitimate government of Iraq is being murdered by the quisling Iraqi war crimes court and the U.S. Many organizations that delve into legal matters, as well as the United Nations, have called the court a travesty of justice.
Soon, Ali al-Majid will hang. (He may already have been killed by the time you read this.)
I can not recall any time in modern history where such a program was allowed to exist while the world watched.
Where is Amnesty International? Where is Human Rights Watch? Where is the United Nations? Where are the myriad "peace" and "anti-war" groups? Where are the anti-death penalty activists who assemble at U.S. prisons on the eve of an execution? Where are the mainstream media? Where are the left and "progressive" media? Where are the members of the U.S. government who oppose the death penalty?
All the above are laying low. It is not in good form or politically correct for anyone in the West to defend someone from the Ba’ath regime. Al-Majid does not count.
In realty, all these groups and individuals are hypocrites of the highest order. If one is against the death penalty, he/she does not get to choose who is defendable and who is not.
In addition to being hypocrites, these groups and individuals are also complicit in first degree murder for not speaking up.
My conscience is clear.Archives
