The Death of a Dictator

Saddam Hussein, the dictator of Iraq for 30+ years, the "Butcher of Baghdad" is now dead.

This is a man directly responsible for the torture and murder of countless people both in and out of his country. He will go down in history with such names as Hitler, Stalin, and countless others who prided themselves on the number of people they killed.

He intended this legacy to go on through his sons and grandson. Even his 14 year-old grandson was being trained to torture women and children so he would be ready to run Iraq when his time came around.

No one on this planet can truly deny his guilt of these crimes against humanity. The most liberal of liberals agree this man was one of, if not the most brutal head of state in our time.

Some claim that his trial was unfair. They point to the safety of defense representation for Hussein, access to evidence, and other issues. People who hold the view that this trial was unfair draw the reasonable conclusion that the execution was invalid (I say reasonable because if a trial is truly unfair, then the sentence is logically unfair).

But I ask this of those that hold this view. Would full and perfect access to the evidence make any difference in the outcome of guilt? Would perfect safety and protection that rivals that of the US President's Secret Service protection make any difference in a death sentence?

Question asked and answered: No, it would have not made any difference. The whole world knows that this man was guilty of the murder and torture of countless men, women, and children. The whole world knows that this man did it with all deliberate intentions. This is a fact that he did it, and did it intentionally.

And it is also a fact that he will never be able to do it again. We, the people of the world, will enter the year 2007 with one less brutal dictator. And with one less obstacle to peace.

The Unvarnished Truth

Drumwaster and I don't always agree on things, but he is dead on here.

Once Again...

Kim du Toit is absolutely brilliant! I think his analysis is dead on. Why are guys like Che and Castro revered by the left, but ones like Pinochet and Franco are reviled as barbarous? Sometimes necessity trumps morality.

Does this mean I approve? No. Does this mean they weren't monsters? Absolutely not. But they saved their countries from worse fates. In the end, Spain and Chile are better off with Franco and Pinochet than they would have been under Communist rule.

Not saying it is right, just saying it IS.

Change of Pace

Ok folks, let's do something different for a bit. I want to lighten things up a little, so everyone tell me your best story involving public nudity! Yes, it is a bit crass, but we have to laugh now and then. I will tell you one of mine in a bit.

Just Sick

This is why everyone should own a gun and use it against intruders. It just makes me sick. Why would you ever just cave into some thug in your own damn home? You cannot negotiate with scum, you cannot reason with them, because they are evil and will not respect you or your position. Deadly force is all they will respect.

Why did this guy just meekly let someone ransack his house and murder his wife? Has the West (I realize it is Africa, but South Africa is still very Anglicized) bred such a generation of weaklings and girlie-men that this is what the future holds? I pray not.

Your Thoughts?

On another blog today, a commenter posted that the West was in the same boat as the Roman Empire in the last days before the fall of Rome and the beginning of the Dark Ages. They said the West had lost the will to defend themselves and would keep trying to appease the Islamo-fascist scum. I have my own thoughs on this, but want to hear yours. What do YOU think about it?

Inconvenient Truth #213

I appologize folks for taking such a long vacation from posting, but I want to give ya'll a bit of an update. As Johnny said, I've been working long hours on finishing up a major contract for my company. But, now I'm back and my schedule is settling back down (somewhat) and I'm going to be able to post much more.

So I decided to come out swinging and yelling at the liberals. Inconvenient truth #213, the liberals are still loosing! They lost the election, are they are loosing ground up on the Hill. Take a look at this folks:

  1. The only thing the Dems could do to win the majority in the House and Senate was to move to the middle and emphasize more conservative ideas while keeping their liberal views (free abortion, increased taxes, extreme business regulation, etc.) on the back burner.
  2. The moonbat/netroots/anti-war golden boy, Ned Lamont, LOST against Lieberman!
  3. Nancy Palosi's endorsment of anti-war John Murtha for House Majority Leader failed miserably. Right out of the gate, the liberal Palosi couldn't lead crap.
  4. Palosi's first pick for the House Intel committee failed. And who knows how this new one will turn out.
Now, I'm not saying the Republicans won here. In fact my view is that the Republicans tried too much to look like liberals and got too greedy on their power as the majority. But the liberal, anti-war, moonbats have nothing to celebrate here.

So, to the liberals out there reading our blog, kiss my pro business, red state ass. I'm back.
