Let the Trials Begin
The Saddam Regime Trials will begin with Saddam’s cousin Chemical Ali.
The evidence against Ali include tapes of bloodthirsty speeches he gave to Baath Party groups.
The tapes are apparently very damning; Ali threatens to cut the regime’s opponents open “like cucumbers” and bulldoze their bodies into mass graves.
(more than just a threat, we now know…)
Excerpts from the Chemical Ali tapes include when Ali reacts to a suggestion that he would be criticized or using chemical weapons: “Who is going to say anything? The international community? F— them!”
Let’s hope the trials are run better than the Milosevic Trial by the World Court.
