We Need More Hitchy's

Saddam's chief apologist - Los Angeles Times: "Far from denying that any such horror had occurred � and it is one of the smaller elements in the bill of indictment � Clark asserted that it was justifiable. He has now twice said in public that, given the war with the Shiite republic of Iran, Hussein was entitled to take stern measures. 'He had this huge war going on, and you have to act firmly when you have an assassination attempt,' he told the BBC.
To this he calmly added that he himself had more than once been shoved aside by Secret Service agents eager to defend the president of the United States (and of course one remembers the mass arrests, beatings and executions that followed the assassination attempts on presidents Ford and Reagan). It is as if Hussein had not started, by his illegal, blood-soaked invasion of Iran, the 'huge war' that Clark cites as the excuse for Hussein then turning his guns on Iraqis.
I wonder, does the former absolute owner of Iraq quite realize that one on his team of attorneys is proudly trumpeting his guilt?"

He shouldn't be the only one who makes this much sense. There should be others that can say it as well. There aren't. Let's face it. Ramsey and others like him enjoy a bit of oppressive power in their friends. Be it Saddam or Castro, they want to be friends with people who don't need charisma to maintain power. The same people that want gun control take pleasure in leaders who lead by the gun, and in this case, by the meat grinder and noose. Whatever works, I suppose, they justify.
