Saddam’s Hanging

The Americans are very annoyed at the way Saddam was executed. Most of all, they seem to be upset that some of his guards shouted abuse and threats at him as he stood on the gallows. Threats? What threats could you possibly shout at a man with a rope around his neck – We’ll fuckin kill you?

Anyway, isn’t the hypocrisy simply astounding? They can claim with a straight face that it had nothing to do with them. The Iraqis did it. There’s Bush in his toga gesturing to a slave. Bring me a bowl of water for my hands. I am innocent of this man’s blood.

It’s ridiculous. They don’t like the screaming at the hanging. They didn’t mind the fact that his trial was a set-up and they didn’t mind keeping him prisoner until the Iraqis were ready to hang him, but they sure don’t want no shoutin’ at no hangin’.

Even Saddam himself would find this ludicrous. There you are standing on a scaffold. The rope is already around your neck. Your hands and feet are bound. Any second now, that flap will open and you’ll fall to your death. What are you thinking to yourself?

I hope they don’t shout at me.

kick it on

    Nice reworking of the old Tom Paxton gag, Bock.


    Thanks. I’m glad somebody appreciated it.


    As an American, I know it had everything to do wit hus. I hate this war, and I wish it hadn’t have happened.

    If Rummy, Cheney, and Bush I couldn’t go with him, than there was no justice (I’m not for the death penalty anyway).


    Americans are angry about the video because upon seeing Saddam die they realized that they feel bad about seeing another human being killed, and if they feel bad about it then it must be wrong, but the preznit says its right so they become confused and being confused become angry then they waddle off to McDonalds and eat a cheeseburger and feel better.


    The threats were probably that they’d kill his sons…
