A Little Reminder

6_21_103003_fnl_iraqtorture2.jpgDue to the “outrage” over the video of Saddam being hanged, I thought a little reminder was in order. It was Saddam who pioneered the snuff video. Saddam liked to watch the executions he was unable to attend and kept a personal library of murders he had committed in his name.

One thing that struck me is how similar some of these images are to the snuff videos that the enemy produces. Saddam used terror to hold onto power. The terrorists use the same methods.

Our original post on this matter is here.

The original videos are available here.

Quote from Newsmax via Free Republic:

* Video tapes of two beheadings, with one featuring the executioners singing "Happy Birthday, Saddam" in Arabic as they carry out the grisly murder.

* More video of a detainee whose hand his tied to a board while his fingers are cut off one by one.

* People being thrown off four-story buildings, including one who was forced to wear a Superman costume.

* A man scourged ninety-nine times.

* Videos of babies being gassed to death.

Actually I feld bad for Saddam. His last statement from via his Lawyers was touching. However, it lacked one thing. Saddam could have asked for and end to the fighting that claims so many Iraq lives. But he did not, that shows more than anything how much he "cared" about the lives of his people. So my moment of sympathy for him was short lived.

More from Prarie Pundit.

The AP's own count taken from news reports put the total at 13,738. The story fails to mention that the enemy's deliberate targeting of non combatants is a war crime. It is an aspect of the story the media has avoided since the war began. Yet, the same media gets all excited when US forces accidentally kill civilians while searching for enemy troops who are camouflaged as civilians. It is an extraordinary double standard that they adhere to shamelessly.

Hmm looks just like the "resistance/terrorist/murderers vids doesn't it. Credit Saddam for the idea.
