Regardless of the "laws" passed by the occupation forces, the shooting of those people was cold-blooded murder. Everything the Nazis did was legal by Nazi law, but it made no difference when the world caught up with them. Bush and his cronies should be hanged as war criminals and mass murderers. Considering who has the power, that may not happen, but if the truth survives then I expect history, at least, to condemn them as murdering criminals. They do not, however, have immunity from the sense of justice of many people in the world, or in Iraq -- and there such a thing as retribution. The sanctions killed 1/2 million people; there are 120,000 troops in Iraq. If the situation gets bad enough, might not the tribal sheiks order jihad or blood revenge? (I'm not sure exactly what the cultural values are.) If the majority of Iraqis was willing to sacrifice his life for that of an occupier, one to one, the entire occupation force could be wiped out for little more than one fifth the loss from the sanctions. It seems to me that Bush might be entirely underestimating the danger he is courting. ________________________________________________________________ The best thing to hit the internet in years - Juno SpeedBand!
