They don't want you to hear, but we have the Internet. We can decide what we want to hear.

Long story short, major news media is not being allowed to give you coverage of Saddam Hussein's trial. Moreover, the government is taking control of what you get to hear about it.

Unacceptable. We bombed the crap out of a country for this trial, and I want to know what transpires goddammit.

I was actually quite amused by the questions of the court's legitimacy that Hussein raised. In fact, his questions have merit. The government that's taking form certainly doesn't have public support. Unless you count suicide bombings a form of support. I strongly doubt that after we leave, the government will be able to stand on its own. Call me crazy.

However, by what right does this court try Hussein? Nominally, this is an Iraqi court. This court represents who? The Iraqi people? While they certainly want to try this man for his crimes, I don't think the majority of them have agreed to allow this court to do it for them.

Personally, I want to know what happened to a good old fashioned UN War Crimes Tribunal. If it was good enough at Nuremberg, it's good enough here.
  • Actually, I would love to Hussein & Bush both before a UN Tribunal and see which one gets locked up ... and which one gets hung.
  • actually the tria is on and has coverage i watched the whole begginng . they havent actually started the trial yet its the hearings that are going on now . and saddam wanted to know if the judge was acting on orders from the occupation and he was told no i represent the interim govt. they will be the ones in charge of the trial. saddam also stated that the real criminal was g.w. bush. get cable man lol
