Bush Deserves Better than Hussein

By Circles Robinson

While many of his detractors would like to see him receive the same fate as former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, I personally believe that the US president deserves a fairer trial than a kangaroo court and a lethal injection if found guilty of crimes against humanity.

There are those that will argue, and not without reason, that his direct responsibility in the killing of an estimated 100,000 Iraqis and the squandering of the lives of over 3,000 US soldiers merits the most cruel treatment that lovers of blood, guts and revenge could hope for.

Many may even hope the final moments of the man responsible for the nightmare that began in March 2003, be shown on primetime television with a rating allowing 10-year-olds to learn the lesson.

And yes, why not let him sweat it out with five minutes of commercials at a couple million dollars a crack before his lights go out.

CNN could run the following story that would be quite similar to the one they ran at 4:44 a.m. EST on Saturday December 30, 2006.

WASHINGTON, USA (CNN)— George W. Bush, the former US ruler who spent his last years after his ruthless regime relaxing under house arrest at his Crawford, Texas ranch, was put to death by lethal injection before dawn Saturday for crimes committed in a genocidal war against the people of Iraq during his 2001-2008 reign.

The execution actually took place shortly after 6 a.m. but will be rebroadcast on evening primetime television, a spokesperson for an End to US War Crimes told CNN.

“This dark page has been turned over,” the spokesperson said. “Bush is gone. Today the US is a US for US citizens and Iraq for the Iraqis… The Bush era has gone forever.”

CNN announced it will air the videotape of Bush’s last moments for several hours after the execution.

The video showed Bush, dressed in a cowboy outfit, being led into a room by three masked guards.

The broadcast only showed the execution to the point where the needle was jabbed into Bush’s vein. The audio was not heard. (Note, when you cut the sound in horror films only the best ones are actually scary.)

An eye witness, obviously not a Bush follower, said the former leader was “strangely submissive” to the process.

“He was a broken man,” he said. “He was afraid. You could see the fear of God in his face.”

The witness said that Bush carried with him a copy of the Bible and asked that it be given to “a certain person.” He did not identify that person.

In another network TV interview, the witness said Bush refused to wear a black hood over his head before execution.

For those that somehow missed the execution-day coverage and will now have to wait for the pay-for-view version on HBO, stay tuned because a second chance is coming in the next few days when Bush’s father George H. will get his just deserts for his crimes in Iraq and Central America and brother Jeb will get his for supporting Miami, Florida-based terrorism against an alligator shaped Caribbean island.

You are a fool for posting those comments. Just because Bush had the courage to act doesn't give cowards the right to say he deserves death. He was not perfect, but he was a leader with a spine and that is what we needed after 9/11. You and the rest of Bush's celebrity critics would be wise to heed the words of Theodore Roosevelt:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt
