Duraid: Five Minutes Alone...George Galloway
Children Assasinated by Saddam Hussein, Karbala, Iraq. The drawing of the children are by Hannah, my dear friend / 4 years old, 7.5' x 6', DC
So, what would you do Duraid, just you and Saddam alone in his cell? Would you kill him?
Scream at him? Ask him why he acted the way he
did? Seek him to admit his sins? Film him in
his desperation? What would you do?
Thanks very much.
Tough question to answer.
But in the end, it's irrelevant, as irrelevant as if you chose Hitler, Pol Pot, Gengis Khan, or any other human monster.
What is sad about all this is that it is merely a distraction to the ultimate tragedy going on in
Iraq right now.
It seems more civilians are being killed per month than when Saddam was in power.
How incredibly sad.
Sorry if this reply dissapoints.
We have more important issues to deal with, like
the threat of permanentloss to our culture,
depleted uranium, reconstruction, rights of Iraqi
prisoners (a mojority of whom are detained without charges), etc.
By asking this question, you are playing into the hands of occupation forces, who have stolen and continue to steal from Iraqi wealth (for
more on this, just listen to Galloway's U.S.
Senate hearing. Whatever you think of
him, just listen to the facts).
My best wishes,
