Let the world now find out what was really behind all the torture,
murder, and mass graves in Iraq for the past 25 years and another reason for
deposing the tyrant of Bagdad.

BAGHDAD, July 15 (Reuters) - A new Iraqi war crimes court will try ousted
President Saddam Hussein and his top associates, a party in Iraq's Governing
Council said on Tuesday.

The U.S.-backed Council agreed to set up a commission charged with laying
down laws, local or international, that would allow it to put suspected war
criminals on trial, said Entifadh Qanbar, spokesman for the Iraqi National
Congress

"The Council decided to form a judicial high commission to look into the
various types of crimes...and to try war criminals," he told Reuters.

"The United States has not declared until now what it's going to do with the
55 (most wanted members of Saddam's government). The Governing Council will
take it upon itself to try them and to punish them according to law," said
Qanbar.

"That includes Saddam Hussein, the biggest criminal."

The 25-member Council was formed on Sunday, the first Iraqi national
political body since a U.S.-led invasion toppled Saddam on April 9.

Qanbar said the Council also decided to form a commission to look into ways
to "uproot" Saddam's once all-powerful Baath Party from Iraqi society.

The U.S.-led administration of Iraq had banned Saddam's ruling party and
launched a de-Baathification process, sacking all senior party members from
government jobs.

Qanbar said the Council would start with reviewing bylaws for a government
before considering naming ministers.

The Council has some executive powers, like nominating ministers, changing
laws, helping in naming a committee to draft a new constitution and prepare
for free elections. But the final say remains in the hands of U.S.
administrator Paul Bremer.

And what about all the breaches in International law by Bush ?
Gantanamo is a shame, not the behaviour of a democracy.

Violation of what laws? Specifically, which ones? Can you name them?
War is not illegal.


Considering that illegal combatants in WW2 were executed on the spot many
times, they are not doing too bad at Gitmo.
Capture Germans dressed as American MP's? Can you say "firing squad"? And no
its not a war crime.

So, you think it is the right way to behave for a country respectful of
human right ?

Now you are blaming the victim instead of the perpetrator. Saddam was told
to abdicate peacefully or by force. He chose poorly.
