Last night I learned that Saddam was hung. I was saddened by the news.

The friend that told me what happened was also saddened by the news and asked when will they hang President Bush for all the people he is responsible for killing? All the U.S. soldiers who have died because of his orders and the tens of thousands of innocent people in the world who have died because of Bush deserve justice, right?

I wonder if they will one day hang Kocharian for all the suffering and death he has caused? The recently adopted constitution of Armenia forgives the President of anything he has done during his time in office. Didn’t Iraq have a similar constitution before it was invaded by the Americans? I guess once your overthrown by America, all bets are off and the only laws that apply are those dictated by Washington.

The hanging of Saddam was wrong. I’m not going to defend him for what he did to his people, but if such a punishment can be handed down to him, then all the world leaders should be accountable of what they have done during their time in power and given equal sentences. Why isn’t Mikhail Gobachev on trial for all of the crimes he committed instead of being paid exorbitant fees to lecture at universities all over the world?
