Doomed if you do, Doomed if you dont...
As Im watching the news now, the Breaking News said Saddam's Lawyer is being told to collect Saddam's and Barzan's personal effects, then a few minutes later we were told that Saddam has been transferred to Iraqi Custody. So any time now, any time, he will face his death. Z was right after all.
Oh, wait just now, Sky news is saying that an Iraqi Official is denying the handover to the Iraqis. I think this is just a ploy. A ploy to hide the handover. They are scared from what might transpire. The Iraqi government without the American forces are nothing. They are a bunch of cowardly characters that rely on the Americans to secure them. So imagine if all of a sudden news travels and everyone finds out that Saddam is with them, the Baathists will not relent. They will hold on to their empty dream of brining him back and so things will become nasty. Im not sure how the Iraqis are reacting to this. Today is Friday, no one is gonna be at work, tomorrow and Sunday is gonna be Eid so again my colleagues will be stuck home, and ofcourse Monday is the New Years.
I think it will be very convenient for the Iraqi govt, to carry out the death penalty in the coming days since its Eid, and so people are already gonna be in their homes, and the Govt can extend the curfew and get it all over and done with before the new years. In my opinion, I dont think this should happen right now. For once, just once, let the Iraqis feel its Eid, feel some joy. Dont they deserve to have some peace??? Why instigate bombings and explosions. Why cant the damn government think of the people just for once. Hanging Saddam now will only make matters worse and not better.
Saddam's death will definitely not help the situation in Iraq. If the Govt thinks that his death will bring peace, then I think they should think again. I dunno, I myself dont really know what should happen. They should wait a few more days, let the people have some peace and quiet during Eid, then Hang him!!! Saddam's farewell letter just makes things even worse. He writes as a martyr who is going to meet his God in peace. Please spare me the BS. Saddam as well as the new govt are as bad as each other. The people who are now controlling the ministires are nothing but murderers. Especially the Defense and Interior ministries. The new govt are but a replica of Saddam. But instead of one person there are now hundreds. What a joke.
The same people you see cheering for his death, are the same people that gave him the power. M, another colleague who is a Shia said, you know, I think I will be the first person to cheer Saddam's comeback. That just stung me. How can you say that M? Did you forget what he has done? Did you forget the fear you guys lived in? M smiled, He said nothing compares to our fear now. NOTHING. Saddam is the only person who can get rid of those rogues. He is the only one who knows how to deal with them. M, I said, lets assume what you say is true, and Saddam somehow gets away and takes power, do you really think he will survive one second with all those militias? M laughed, what militias? Neurotica, the minute Saddam comes out, these militias will go back and hide in their holes, they will go back to where they came from. Everyone fears Saddam. Till now everyone fears him.
I dunno what to make out of this situation. I thought everyone hated Saddam and couldnt wait to be freed from his tyranny, now he is gone, everyone wants him back. It is but a confusing world. Thats what it is. Im gonna leave it at that as I need to get ready for work. Many people will see him as a martyr, especially his supporters and those Arab countries that thrived in his existence, I wander what will Azrael, the Angel of death, do when he comes to take Saddam away... Saddam's death which I know many people said will bring joy, is now overshadowed by the daily violence and bombings. The joy that the majority was waiting for, 2 years back, has now evaporated and become nothing but regret. I guess we are doomed. Doomed if you do, doomed if you dont....
Update 8:50 PM: Theres a large number of helicopters hovering around. Their noise is getting on my nerves, is that a sign that Saddam's execution is really gonna be before the day is over. I guess we will just have to wait and see...
