One of the United States’ more corrupt partners of the past few decades was hanged in a U.S. run prison on the banks of the Tigris on December 30. Saddam Hussein learned too late the lesson discovered by other’s who have aligned themselves with the United States in the nefarious ritual of “foreign policy” as practiced by the CIA and other shadow diplomats and government officials. As well, George Bush eliminated a very important witness who was privy to many secrets the U.S. would rather keep hush-hush.

From our “guy in Iraq” to the end of a noose in a his forty plus year alliance with Amerika, Saddam at least held no small measure of longevity over some of our other despicable ‘partners in crime’ which we, without fail, always leave “hanging in the wind” as it were. One can’t help but think that these tinhorn wannabes would learn that when the United States whispers “sweet nothings” in your ear, you’d best reach for the KYtm jelly and also place a down payment on a burial plot.
A bit of history for the above paragraph, Saddam was involved with the CIA as early as 1959. This was right after the British installed monarchy was overthrown by military coup headed up by one Abdul Karim Qasim. This threw the U.S. and Britain into a tizzy as they – up to this point – had been successful in reaping the benefit of Iraq’s oil exports while keeping said exports out of the hands of the Russians. It’s always been about oil, n’est pas?
So Saddam was “recruited,” set up in an apartment in Baghdad on al-Rashid Street directly across from Qasim’s office. He was supposed to carry out an assassination. Saddam failed, got shot in the leg for his troubles and soon hightailed it to Cairo where he had a CIA “minder” for years. And, the rest as they say, “is history,” a long sordid saga of the CIA, and the shadow government of assassinations and financial payoffs.
The media driven frenzy – “ding-dong, the witch is dead” – is truly a sight to behold. I fully expect to see clips of Saddam dropping along with the ubiquitous Times Square ball as Amerika’s oldest teenager regales us once again to “count down.” “Let’s count one for the Black Bull of Baghdad.”
Of course, none of that will be spoken about, or analyzed as the talking heads of propaganda and political spin dissect, chew up and regurgitate all that is Saddam Hussein for Amerika’s listening and viewing pleasure over the next few weeks. “Ding-dong, the witch is dead, the wicked witch is dead.”
Also absent from these agit-prop discourses – of course – will be any mention of “unindicted (or, unhanged) co-conspirators.” Co-conspirators like Rumsfeld, Cheney, Bush #1, Allen Dulles, and many others up to and including Bush #2. If Saddam had to hang for killing “thousands” why should not George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Tony Blair, Don Rumsfeld and others hang for killing over 655,000 Iraqis? Why should not the butchers of Israel hang for killing thousands of innocent Palestinians? Why? Why?
All of these people, Presidents, Primes Ministers, leaders all, have brutalized and murdered the innocent with bullets, bombs, poisons, sanctions, depleted uranium, white phosphorus - and suffer the little children. It’s all about oil, n’est pas? Ding-dong, the witch is dead, the wicked witch is dead.
The United States and by extension its corrupt allies have murdered, brutalized and killed the innocent. The United States and its corrupt allies have made refugees of millions of people. And the propaganda meisters ask us to forget these appalling crimes against humanity as we rally around an undulating corpse. Ding-dong the witch is dead.
The true criminals however, are not dead. Bush still breathes the air of the living. His unindicted co-conspirators are still walking in the sunshine of freedom with no fear of retribution. Justice will not be served until – and when – these vile perpetrators of genocide and other crimes against humanity swing from the same rope as Saddam Hussein. Ding-dong the witch is dead, the wicked witch is dead. But this writer will never feel comfortable – or guilt free – living in these United States until all of the criminals hang.
