the true timeline of Saddam

A short, accurate film of the CIA's real relationship with Saddam Hussien:

The US government put this man in power, armed him deadly weapons, and used him to their short-sighted advantages. It is not a coincidence that at this point in 2006, this all time low in troop moral and public faith in the president, Saddam is executed. A cellphone video of the hanging is "leaked" onto the internet. All these actions of US propaganda are designed to justify the unjustifiable war on Iraq.

Well, no one cares anymore because we can see through these loosely knit lies. Even if it actually was Saddam being executed in that video (remember, he had countless body doubles) it doesn't matter. There are so many other leaders/generals/psychopaths alive who have committed even greater war crimes and crimes against humanity. Let's even the playing field and kill them all.

Or what if we confront murderers with compassion, instead of sinking to their own cruel levels. Is it possible we could create a better world if we replace the tactics of hate and fear with understanding and love? This mode of thought has worked in the past: In Iroquois culture, capital punishment and prison were never installed; instead, violators were reintegrated into society, with serious offenders sentenced to community service. This method of living worked for centuries, until the arrival of the Europeans and their backwards ways. Unfortunately, we have been stuck in that cycle ever since.

So it is up to people like you and me to change this pattern and develop a more civilized, thoughtful and caring way of life. Start right at home with how you treat your neighbors, friends and family. Take time to talk with the people who bag your groceries, sweep your floors and pump your gas. The world will start to change the moment we begin treating each other like human beings.
