Rumsfeld being tried is not out of the realm of possibility. You know that obviously.

1. Being tried where?

2. It would NEVER get that far where ever the trial was being held, Bush/Cheney would not allow it.

I would not wish this on anyone, but here are some examples of Sharia Law as applied in Iran:

Vienna, Va.: Why wasn't the full one-hour documentary shown? The "cut and paste" version failed to show the real horror in Iran. The full version depicts the horrific acts of torture on Iranian citizens followed by further interviews with political activists in Iran, Turkey and several other European countries. Why was all of that cut out? Was this a political decision made by PBS so as to not anger the Iranian leaders? It was not fair to you as a reporter or to the millions of Iranians suffering under this regime to have shown a sanitized version.

Jane Kokan: It wasn't my decision to make the cuts. PBS has a different format, so the film couldn't be more than 25 minutes. The film I made for channel 4 features stoning, having his eye removed for looking at something un-Islamic, amputations -- very gruesome and I could see that people would switch off if they saw these things. The interesting thing is that they issued a moratorium on stoning, but people are still being sentenced to stoning. Hard to prove it, though. People are still being amputated as per amnesty international.

If you look at the Iranian penal code, it is totally barbaric. For example, every time the reformers want to ban torture the guardian counsel, the Ayatollah, can veto a bill that will ban torture. Every time the reformers try to do something, it is vetoed. So, it's tough to implement change. I guess the channel 4 version was distributed around the world and even smuggled back into Iran.

Even in the Iranian penal code, men have to be buried up to their waist in Iran and women up to their breastline, the rocks can't be big enough to kill you too quickly.

I'm not saying the Iranians should implement a Western penal code -- who am I to raise my Canadian wand to say this? But it is pretty barbaric by Western standards.

And women's rights are half that of a man's.
