(It is hard to comprehend that Saddam Hussein has been dead for six months. His voice still reverberates in the hearts and minds of many. Unfortunately, the results of the removal of the Bath regime are blatantly evident everywhere in Iraq today. In time, however, Saddams legacy will rebound and Iraq will once again be a proud nation. We all know this will take a considerable number of years to accomplish, but it is a foregone fact. Lets go back to the hours of December 30, 2006 in which a bunch of Iraqi traitors and criminals thought they had rid the Iraqi psych of Saddam Hussein. They were wrong.)

For the past hour, I have been fidgeting and going from website-to-website to see when the inevitable words would appear on the screen. About five minutes ago, they did. Aljazeera News had a moving banner at the top of its site that read: Unconfirmed reports say that Saddam Hussein has been hanged in Baghdad.

At least the anxiety of those who admired Saddam is over. Soon, headlines will herald the violence that emanates from his hanging.

Vilified by western analysts, politicians, and journalists for years, it is nothing short of miraculous that Saddam lasted as long as he did. Many of the left are just as responsible for his demise as are the neocons they lambaste. Scribe-after-scribe has demeaned Saddam Hussein since 1990, most of the time relaying lies and myths about the man and his Baath Party. No lie was too big if it was sensational enough to acquire headlines. I wont go into them now because, in the past three years, I have chronicled all the nonsense that authors on the left have levied against Saddam. Their writing made in unnecessary for the right to denigrate Saddam because they outdid the preposterous stories that had preceded their articles.

Many people should be held as murderers for the presidents hanging. Not just the hangman, but everyone who fueled the fire of hatred against him, including members of the “progressive” press who helped pass on the lies.

It is preposterous to see how the eventual hanging of Saddam unfolded. A bunch one-time Iraqis who had not lived in the country for decades were flown into Iraq by U.S. to run the country. A bible-toting imbecile (Paul Bremer) changed the countrys laws and constitution, as well as took away state ownership of crucial industries. A fiction writer would not be able to write such an unlikely scenario.

Many ironies are involved in this debacle. For one, many of those Iraqis who opposed Saddam but never left the country and who are now cheering his death, benefited greatly from the programs instituted in Saddams time, such as the excellent education system and the finest healthcare system in the Middle East, as well as an economy (pre-1991) that ensured most Iraqis a comfortable living. They have short memories.

Before Saddam Hussein and the Baath Party came to power in Iraq, the country was indistinguishable from most other Arab countries. Sure, it had oil, but in those days, the world did not have the thirst for the commodity that it has today. In the 1970s, the government introduced many revolutionary aspects to Iraqi life: the equality of women; universal education; universal health care; much-improved public transportation; emphasis on science; etc.

By the 1980s, Iraq was thriving and was the crown jewel of the Middle East. But, along with the improvements came jealousy and greed. The U.S., because of its no-questions-asked affinity to Israel, had to take Iraq back a few notches. And, oil was now becoming a symbol of political world power, not just something to buy to keep a countrys power requirements in place.

In other words, Iraq was now worth fighting for. It no longer was the antiquated nation of a few decades ago. Saddam Hussein was the driving force behind the transformation of Iraq.

Gradually, the U.S., with other western powers, wanted some of Iraqs action. Little-by-little, the country was degraded, beginning on January 17, 1991. Twelve years of an embargo weakened it further, but it did not kill Iraq. It took a disgusting invasion in March 2003 to finish the country off.

Today, Iraq has been totally destroyed, not just physically, but emotionally. All of Saddams enemies hold equal responsibility in the destruction. They not only murdered Saddam, but Iraq as well. But, they are not jubilant. Because of the tenacity of Saddam and much of the Iraqi population, they had to destroy everything before they took it over. Shortly after March 2003, some people and institutions, like Ahmed Chalabi and Haliburton, made a quick financial klling. Those days are gone. Todays thieves in the stooge government can only count on small change to steal. The Iraqi people have already had everything they own, physically and emotionally, stolen.

Malaki may be happy today that he pushed Saddams execution by, along with U.S. collaboration, forming phony courts for mock trials. Soon, that mirth will give way to panic. Saddam Hussein made Iraq worth fighting for. The outsiders and the traitors dismantled his Iraq. However, there are many Iraqis (the resistance) who will now, a little at a time, rid the country of the stooges and the occupiers. Then, Iraq will again worth be fighting for, but the discredited purveyors of destruction will have been discredited and will not represent a threat. This will be Saddam Husseins legacy. The “mother of all battles” is far from over.

In conclusion, I would like to relay a story published by Iraq Screen a few days ago. The author interviewed an Iraqi officer of the Republican Guard who participated in the battle for the airport in Baghdad in April 2003. The officer recalled:

While I was busy shooting with my colleagues, all of a sudden, we found Saddam Hussein with a number of his assistants inside the airport, we were really surprised because we did not expect such a thing, but Saddam went forward and took an RPG and put it on his shoulder and began to shoot by himself. We gathered around him and begged him to stay aside and leave us fighting because if we would be killed, we are common officers, but if he is killed, we would lose our leader. Saddam turned to us and said, “Look, I am no better than any one of you and this is the high time to defend our great Iraq and it would be great to be killed as a martyr for the sake of Iraq.”

Saddam is now a martyr, even more so than if he was killed in the airport battle. Those who hanged him are sellout stooges and confronted him as cowards, not warriors.
