They didn't even wait a femto-second.

The Great El-ahrairah just came back from his "vacation" to an undisclosed middle-eastern country and other than being "entertained" on one of my flights by a couple who decided that the on-board entertainment wasn't to their liking so they decided to create their own, it was a pretty "uneventful" flight if uneventful means lost luggage, flight delays and coming down with the flu. But, I digress.

Anyway, I see that Saddam will swing from the gallows in 30 days and of course, all the assorted "human rights" organizations are coming out of the woodwork to criticize the verdict. The Great El-ahrairah always finds it interesting in a hypocritical way when human rights organizations want to protect the rights of despots like Saddam but are no where to be found when Saddam killed so many of his country men. As far as the Great El-ahrairah is concerned, human rights organizations are like the UN, the world would be better off without both of them since all they do is create an environment where despots like Saddam can thrive.

Anyway, if we are lucky, the hanging will be televised so that we can all see Saddam swing. It will really be a TiVo "popcorn" event.

P.S. If any of the readers of the Warren are of the "I'm against capital punishment" persuasion, you can save your comments. I'm in no mood to waste my time explaining to someone who has no concept of the value of human life why someone like Saddam should die for his actions.
