Kardox - The Kurdish View

The Kurdish view of Middle Eastern politics

Location: Kurdistan - NOT IRAQ!, Kurdistan - NOT IRAQ!, Iraq

I am a 30 year old businessman in Hawler (Arbil, north Iraq). I have lived in Europe for almost 15 years, but now I work for a family investment company. Surely I would like to let know you people more, but I want to stay in once peace. I love bloging because it gives me the satisfaction to write about my thoughts.

Kurdish leader doesn’t want death penalty for Saddam

Yes, the one and only PUK leader. Jalal Talabani speaks. I really don’t know why he still has his job. The funniest part is that Kurds in south Kurdistan didn’t even know about this.

Trying to save Saddam’s life, to win some “western” points is political suicide. The funniest part is that on his political party TV they talked about this. Jalal Talabani is a lawyer and this making it more wired.

“A lawyer should not talk about what sentence Saddam should receive” said one person on the studio. Yes, it is not in place for lawyer-leader-Kurdish to talk about “not sentencing Saddam to death”.

Get a grip Jalal Talabani. If you are one of his sons, please tell your dad to shut up when he doesn’t know what he is talking about.

If there is one good thing about this, it is that freedom of speech is working.
The KurdSat sattlite channel is owned and driven by PUK party, and still guests criticize the leader.

Go KurdSat Go!

Hi, hope you're not offended by my comments.

I suppose one of the things to consider in executing Saddam is that once he is gone, he cannot answer any more questions. That man grew wealthy by remaining unanswerable to many people for many years. Ideally, a fair trial would allow many questions to be finally answered.

This case is about more then simply trying one man, for that one man is also evidence. As a tyrant he becomes proof of the suffering that many people endured for so long, as a former leader of a tyranical regime he holds many dark secrets. In a sense, to execute Saddam is to burn evidence.

In order to move forward clearly, one needs to examine the past. To understand how one got where one is today is to understand how one may avoid repeating unpleasant histories. Ideally, a fair trial allows the examination and resolution of past events.

You raise some interesting issues in your last few posts and i couldn't help commenting, i will try not to annoy you in your comments any more.

hey kardox...i think your blog is wonderful, although im not quite as positive on american politics(dont get me wrong though, i am grateful). but i dont think saddam should get the death penalty either. i think thats mercy killing and he deserves something much worse than that; i would like nothing more than to watch him have to face the families of all the victims that he effected and have them all say something to him. plus, by not executing him and giving him a fair trial it proves that iraq can be a democratic country, even to those we hate most.
