Saddam's tribunal judge killed

This pisses me off: Gunmen have killed a judge and a lawyer working for the Iraqi tribunal which will try Saddam Hussein and his senior officials, raising concern that insurgents have infiltrated what is supposed to be a secret court. Barawiz al-Merwani, 59, and his lawyer son Aryan, 26, were ambushed when they left their home in north Baghdad on Tuesday, two days after the tribunal ruled that a first group of defendants must be tried for crimes against humanity. A car with three gunmen opened fire as the two Kurdish men were about to step into their own car, hitting the judge twice and his son 11 times, according to family members. News of the attack emerged only yesterday. Intelligence from insiders has enabled insurgents to kill scores of senior officials, clerics and army and police commanders in recent months. They struck the capital twice yesterday, killing at least 10 Iraqi soldiers and wounding dozens at an army base and checkpoint, compounding a febrile mood in the aftermath of Monday's bomb in the town of Hilla which killed at least 115 people. Ok, are those who are helping Saddam retarded? Do they really view him as a hero? I mean, the man was a tryant and a murderer. So now that the US took him out he is a freakin hero? I..this..grrrrr..aghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...... Sorry, words fail me in front of such stupidity. Sigh

I'd like to help you come up with some words Sam, but I lost all of my good words screaming at those in my country, who support your terrorists.

You know Sandmonkey, if this is what they think is "supporting" Saddam, they really do have their heads on backwards. They are basically putting the final nail in his coffin and in Arab Nationalism.

On a more positive note, it seems the other great menace is now being rounded up. Radical Islamic clerics are being charged, brought to trial and found guilty.

This is why I totally disagree with those assholes who thought the debaathification program was wrong.

It was right. Anyone above the rank of clerk that was a member of the Ba'ath party should have been thrown out of office.

This is why the Nazis were thrown out an only allowed back after the country was completely stable.

Bremer was right.
