Saddam's sentence: another letter to the President

Another small exercise in futility, at least in so far as Mr. Bush is concerned. It sure made me feel better for a few moments, however.

Dear Mr. President:

To adapt a Biblical phrase, "Saddam has slain his thousands, and Bush his ten thousands." (1 Samuel 18: 7)

(Okay, your death toll is only about twice what his was [300,000 according to your statement], but he took 24 years to accumulate that number. Directly and indirectly, you've doubled his tally in only 3 and a half years!)

When will justice be done to his enablers and abettors in the US government at the time Saddam committed his crimes?

What will be the verdict on you for making life for Iraqis even more dangerous than it was under their own dictator?

If hanging is appropriate for Saddam Hussein, I hate to think what would be considered appropriate for George W. Bush.

As for me, I'm opposed to the death penalty in all cases. I'm content with "'Vengeance is mine', says the Lord." Neither do I support torturing anyone. Let's hope that the rest of the world, and history, is as kind to you.

As always, it's repentance time,
