    The victors' unjust trial also lacked moral authority. “We cannot even claim moral superiority,” wrote Robert Fisk, for if Saddam's mistakes are to be “the yardstick against which all our iniquities are judged, what does that say about us? We have won. We have inflicted justice upon the man whose country we invaded and eviscerated and caused to break apart.”

    “ Iraq is now swamped with mass murderers, guilty of rape and massacre and throat-slitting and torture in the years since our ‘liberation’ of Iraq . Many of them work for the Iraqi government we are currently supporting, democratically elected, of course. And these war criminals, in some cases, are paid by us, through the ministries we set up under this democratic government. And they will not be tried. Or hanged. That is the extent of our cynicism. And our shame. Have ever justice and hypocrisy been so obscenely joined?” (Robert Fisk, The Independent, Nov. 7, 2006)

    The invasion of 2003 was a war crime; in the subsequent three-and-a-half years, the U.S. occupation was responsible for the deaths of 655,000 Iraqis according to a John Hopkins University study; from 1991 to 2003 the United Nations sanctions imposed under the U.S. pressure claimed the lives of one million Iraqis through malnutrition and disease.

    Refuting Bush’s statement that the trial was “a landmark event in the history of Iraq (and) a milestone in the Iraqi people’s efforts to replace the rule of a tyrant with the rule of law,” which the New York Times described as “overreacting,” Malcolm Smart called the trial an “an opportunity missed” and said it “should have been a major contribution towards establishing justice and the rule of law in Iraq.”

    But it was not! Worse the fallout from the “missed opportunity” could create further obstacles to moving from a one-party-one-leader system into a multi-party western-style democratic one, because the verdict if executed would doom reconciliation efforts and exacerbate the internal Iraqi divide to the point of no return away from a full-fledged civil war to settle it.

    To judge with an obvious overwhelming vengeance the leader of a one-party system that ruled the majority of the non-western world during the cold war era at the hands and from the “liberal” perspective of his enemies and the enemies of the system could not be a fair trial; neither could be to judge him in isolation of the ongoing struggle between what he symbolizes and its antithesis.

    Big deal. We provide lots of people with lots of courtesies. Nothing mysterious about this.
