Milosevic: Dead; Saddam, Taylor: Next?

Conspiracy theorists rejoice!

Imprisoned war criminal and former Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic died on March 11, 2006. According to the official report , there was no foul play – he died naturally by a heart attack.

Some don’t buy it. No matter what the official report says, there will always be a group of people – the conspiracy theorists – who believe there was in fact foul play. According to some, Milosevic was killed because the UN did not have a strong case against him and wanted to get the trail over with. Others say that his own supports killed him to keep him from talking. Yet others believe he was murdered to keep him from blowing the whistle on the “New World Order”.

Now that Milosevic is out of the way, we can all turn our attention to two more high-profile war criminals: Charles Taylor of Liberia, and Saddam Hussein of Iraq.

Charles Taylor was recently arrested in Nigeria while trying to flee to Cameroon. Who knows why anybody would want to assassinate him. With such an evil man, there must be a thousand reasons. When he was arrested, I heard on the radio that he begged to be taken better care of then Milosevic so he too would not end up dead. What a coward.

And of course, who can forget the “War Criminal of the Decade” – Saddam Hussein? Almost every Iraqi I talk to believes that he will be killed any day now. He was the puppet of the United States, they say – and if he talks, the US is in big trouble. Don’t forget about his former Arab allies – if Saddam goes down, they might be next. This is especially apparent by the attempts to muck up the court system through intimidation and the murder of defense team members.

Iraqis are trying desperately to keep Saddam’s trial in Iraq. They fear that if Saddam were allowed to leave the country, he may never be seen or heard from again. Though the vast majority of Iraqis want to see Saddam dead, they also realize that dragging him through a trial is the best way to expose his evilness and injustices. I personally like the idea of putting Saddam in a zoo of sorts and have Iraqis pay to throw their slippers at him until he dies (it’s an Iraqi thing) – the government would make enough money through this to rebuild Iraq.

Of course, like many Iraqi, I wait patiently while the trial drags on. If Saddam and other war criminals do die, it will be a great loss for justice in this world.

Whatever happens, we must not forget that it is God that will serve the Ultimate justice – either in this life or the next.

It was probably the stress and all pain he caused. Sitting in a jail cell reflecting on his choices probably got to him.

((Charles Taylor))

Couldn’t agree more with you. For a man that was feared by many, I found it fitting that he ran like a coward.

Great blog, btw. I found your thoughts interesting.
