    Yeah no shit, same people who want to put Bush on trial for war crimes, but are crying about Saddam Hussein's impending death b/c his trial wasn't "fair" or something.

    I'm not aware of any of those people. Generally people who are against crimes against humanity are against the death penalty in general. I certainly don't think its a matter of supporting saddam over bush!



    I find it funny though, that you guys are all for the US policing the world and putting other countries leaders on trial for crimes and yet don't hold the US to the same standards. That doesn't really make a lot of sense, it's ok to hold other world leaders accountable but it's not ok to hold US leaders accountable? If he hasn't done anything wrong then what is there to worry about? At the very least it shows the world that we play by the same set of rules we expect everyone one else to play by.

    I think it's funny too, but for a different reason. There's nothing fair about the current US domination of the world. I think it's funny that ANYBODY believes there is justice or equality! It's all about power and wealth and quality of life. Of course we're not held to the same standards. The victors write the history books!

    As an American, we're obviously better than anyone else in the world. After all, we are The Light and The Way to true Freedom, Equality and Happiness. :roll:

    The only thing the US in #1 in, is in power, military power.

    Richest Countries in the World
    The World In 2005
    (out of date but I doubt anyone has over taken us)
    What country has the largest military spending? - Do You Know at GovSpot.com


    And if that doesn't tell you anything about our government then we are doomed to fall just like the Romans and other great civilizations!
