How about some Styx?

Kiss Your Ass Goodbye

Here we go again
Hands making circles
That you can't turn back again
Sky turning purple
At the funeral of a friend
Who wasn't ready for the ending yet

He made a giant mess
Sloppy disaster
And he left it for the rest
To clean up after
Now the lawyers do their best
To try to divie up
What's ever left

In the ending you can bet
Everyone feels cheated

Kiss your ass good-bye
Boy you're out of time
You didn't choose life
It's just your luck
You got your turn now
Give it up and
Kiss your ass good-bye

What's left to say
When it's over everyone but you remains
Little children will
Still go out and play
Just like it's any other sunny day
Oh yeah

In the ending you can bet
Everyone's an equal

Kiss your ass good-bye
Dude you're past your prime
First you loose your looks
Then you loose your luck
Take the hit now
Pony up and
Kiss your ass good-bye

Everybody gets to go around one time
(And they said it wouldn't last)
After that baby gonna go bye-bye
(Before you know it you're the past)
Everybody got to check out sometime
You go first
I'll catch up right behind

In the ending you can bet
Everyone's a loser

Kiss your ass good-bye
Man it's closing time
It never seems fair
It's never enough
Take a bow, pucker up and
Kiss your ass good-bye
(Nothing left to say, now that it's over you can)
Kiss your ass good-bye Good-bye

Maybe now that Bush finally has his revenge he will let the rest of us go home.

The sad part of this is that the Arabs will never see this foregone conclusion as legitimate. Instead of trying him in an international court, he was tried by our puppet government in Iraq, just a continuation of our many mistakes in Iraq with the anti-UN agenda of the Bushites blinding them to political necessity.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Saddam's Baath Party Threatens U.S. Over Planned Execution
Wednesday, December 27, 2006

Fox News

Saddam Hussein
AMMAN, Jordan — Saddam Hussein's Baath Party threatened Wednesday to retaliate if the ousted Iraqi leader is executed, warning in an Internet posting it would target U.S. interests anywhere.

The statement appeared on a Web site known to represent the Baath, which was disbanded after U.S.-led forces overthrew Saddam in 2003. The site is believed to be run from Yemen, where a number of exiled members of the party are based.

On Tuesday, Iraq's highest court rejected Saddam's appeal against a conviction and death sentence for the killing of 148 people who were detained after an attempt to assassinate in Dujail, northern Iraq, in 1982. The court said the former president should be hanged within 30 days.

"Our party warns again of the consequences of executing Mr. President and his comrades," the statement said.

"The Baath and the resistance are determined to retaliate, with all means and everywhere, to harm America and its interests if it commits this crime," the statement added, referring to Baath fighters as "the resistance."

"The American Administration will be held responsible for any harm inflicted on the president because the United States is the decision-maker [in Iraq] and not the puppet Iraqi government."

Saddam's Death Sentence The statement said that if the execution takes place, it would be impossible for the Baath to take part in any prospective negotiations with U.S. and Iraqi officials to reduce the violence in Iraq.

Saddam's defense lawyers, who are based in Amman, called on Arab governments and the United Nations to intervene to stop the execution.

"Otherwise, all may be participating in what is going on, either actually or due to their silence in face of the crimes, which are being committed in Iraq in the name of democracy," the lawyers said in a statement in English that was e-mailed to The Associated Press bureau.

The statement, signed by "the Defense Committee for President Saddam Hussein," said the court's rejection of Saddam's appeal was part of the "continued shedding of pure Iraqi blood by the current regime in Iraq, which [is] directly connected with the American occupation."

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Well, FFS, what would YOU do with him?

Oh come on, give me a fu**ing break, you are really over the top this time, what do you do, try him in the European Court of Human Rights, the Hague, fu**king Peru, or on the moon?

He is as guilty as a street pimp and you know it. He's lucky he didn't get stripped naked, covered with honey and laid face down on an ant hill in Sadr City, by now, or pick your own scenario.

The key battleground in the War of Iraq is the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people, our inability to recognize that has cost us victory in this war. Saddam was not unpopular with them, a fact most of those on the right find hard to agree with due to their brainwashing. Saddam's conviction has tremondous impact on the Iraqi people, whether he is guilty or not, they must believe he was found guilty fairly or our enemies in Iraq will reap a propaganda bonanza portraying him as a victim of the American occupation puppet government. Once again, we have played right into their hands, as we have done since the day we let them loot the arsenals. Saddam would have most assuredly been found guilty at the High Court at The Hague. So would Bush. Perhaps that is why he does not wish to make an appearance there. In any case, Saddam judged guilty by the world is much less of a propaganda weapon than Saddam found guilty by what all Sunnis consider American Shiite stooges.

Tell me, how do you think Bush would fare on the ant-hills of Sadr City?

His victims, the shiites and kurds and the marsh arabs (over 60% of the country, a majority) are well satisfied with the outcome of the trial, and they so stated to the reporters yesterday, it's that the Sunnis and those people in tikrit and around, they a little upset about it. They might see it as a puppet government trial, some of them anyway, but it's just one more aspect of the mess that Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld and the rest of the neocon cabal made when they upset the applecart by going in there in the first place. He was a bastard, but in the 1980s Rummy was cozying up to him, as a counterweight to Iran. Sadaam's fatal misatake was over reaching and trying to grab Kuwait and it's oil.

Not smart, he should have understood that this country doesn't give a rat's ass about the middle east, but wants a cheap and steady supply of OIL! F**k with that, and it's like DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS!!!

First last and in the end, in the end
it's Operation Iraqi Liberation and war profiteering too. You got a president with close ties to big oil, and the former chairman of Halliburton, the no-bid war profiteer as VEEP.

I ask you.

It was wayyyyy too late when Sadaam was finally caught, the damage was done, the country rent asunder along religious, competing militia, criminals and street thugs and terrorists.

And I still have to STAY THE COURSE and tell you it was a clustered fvck mistake taking out Saddam, disbanded his government, police and armed forces. None of the violence would not have happened in our everyday evening news. We are the bull in the China shop and we are also the laughing stalk because we no longer have credibilities worldwide.

You don't agree Bush has done the biggest disfavor to this country? As I said many times before, I want him and his cronies face the piper for his crimes. And I think thats what FTL is saying all along. Bush refused to try Saddam in Hague in fear he will be next in line. It is blatantly obvious Bush and his cronies have much to hide. First step, ask Pat Roberts why he is not releasing the pre-war intelligence report and go from there.
