Saddam Files Suit Againt Bush, Blair

-- by Dave Johnson

United Press International�-�The Washington Times, America's Newspaper,

Defence lawyers for Saddam Hussein Wednesday distributed copies of a lawsuit against President Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair for destroying Iraq.
The suit accuses Bush and Blair of committing war crimes by using weapons of mass destruction and internationally-banned weapons including enriched uranium and phosphoric and cluster bombs against unarmed Iraqi civilians, notably in Baghdad, Fallujah, Ramadi, al-Kaem and Anbar.

The Amman-based legal team had said Sunday that the ousted president intended to start legal action against the two leaders of the Iraq war in the International Criminal Court in the Hague, but the text of the suit was made available Wednesday. The suit also accuses the U.S. president and British prime minister of torturing Iraqi prisoners, destroying Iraq's cultural heritage with the aim of eliminating an ancient civilization, and inciting internal strife. Bush and Blair were also accused of polluting Iraq's air, waters and environment. The lawsuit demanded that Bush and Blair appear before court to answer the charges filed against them and requested the harshest punishment in line with Dutch legislation and the rules of international and humanitarian laws. It also requested compensation for all material and moral damage inflicted on the Iraqi people.

I loved that article. It would be great if he can pull it off, not for his sake, but for all the innocent Iraq citizens.

This is a joke, right? Or is there any reporting or discussion of this anywhere besides the Washington Times?

Beware of the new Rove/Bush strategy, which of course intends to turn the truth on its head as usual. Being opposed to Bush ignoring legal requirements before spying on the public equates to being "soft on terrorism" and that's how they intend to spin it. The Democrats are weak and won't defend the country, and he will. They intend to use this during both the 06 and 08 elections, and they expect to win. The article about Saddam filing a lawsuit based on our outrages in Iraq is so much what SHOULD happen that I'm willing to bet that discussing it at all will be spun into those who dare even talk about this being defined as traitors.
