A trivia question comes to mind as Besigye starts playing the ICC politics. What did Saddam use for Kurdish Genocide? Chanel #5 or WMD? The answer is, let me give you a hint…..Saddam Hussein carried out mass killings on the scale of Holocaust which took the lives of more than 2,150,000 mostly women, children, and elders as most of these areas were only inhabited by civilians. He destroyed 4,000 villages. Halabja and the surrounding cities were bombarded with chemical agents such as: mustard gas; nerve agents sarin, tabun, and VX as well as blood agent hydrogen cyanide; or more commonly known as Weapons of Mass Destruction. But what did the west do then when he was still their friend as Museveni is?
We are not stupid? We know Saddam used “a” Chemical weapon against Kurds supplied by the WEST – Bush and Blair his lapdog – Gave out lies about massive hoards of WMD that would threaten WEST and their allies Saudis. Evidence was manufactured including Plagiarizing thesis of an Iraqi – Phd – Lies and lies – Because they wanted to take over control of Oil fields – BUSH, BLAIR and Saddam Hussain Should have been hauled over to ICC. But it did not happen and the west found a way to kill Saddam before he presents any evidence of anything to the international courts.
If you are going to have Bush face charges, please also include the entire US Congress and United Nation for the unanimous(almost) vote as an accomplice. Saddam Hussein repeatedly violated sixteen United Nations Security Council Resolutions (UNSCRs) designed to ensure that Iraq did not pose a threat to international peace and security. In addition to these repeated violations, he had tried to circumvent UN economic sanctions against Iraq. These are reflected in a number of other resolutions. As noted in the resolutions, Saddam Hussein was required to fulfill numerous obligations beyond the withdrawal of Iraqi forces from Kuwait.
Specifically, Saddam Hussein was required to, among other things: allow international weapons inspectors to oversee the destruction of his weapons of mass destruction; not develop new weapons of mass destruction; destroy all of his ballistic missiles with a range greater than 150 kilometers; stop support for terrorism and prevent terrorist organizations from operating within Iraq; help account for missing Kuwaitis and other individuals; return stolen Kuwaiti property and bear financial liability for damage from the Gulf War; and he was required to end his repression of the Iraqi people. Does this remind you of someone named Assad.
Assad has repeatedly violated each of the following resolutions. ….UNSCR 6686, 687, 688, 707, 715, 949, 1051, 1060, 1115, 1137, 1154, 1194, 1205, and 1284.
The other trivia question is, if you own a gun, does it give you a right to shoot and kill innocent people? Does it not matter who the supplier is……………..? Do you only charge the shooter and leave out the supplier? Why can’t Ugandans sue Russia, China and other countries that supply these deadly weapons to M7 to use them to kill others?
ICC is funded by European Governments – Its primary aim is to serve the interest of its founders and funder’s – Western Countries. It has failed to haul Bush, Blair, Saddam Hussain, Idi Amin, Pol Pot, Assad ( so far 60,000 dead). In case of Saddam – politically it would not have been expedient as dirty deals of Western countries with him would have been laid bare. Check out the article below:
ICC will cause considerable damage in Kenya – Uhuru has the Kikuyu vote and now purportedly Klengin vote via Ruto. Both have to appear before ICC – If he wins and refuses to attend( so he should) then these western nations will impose sanctions and hurt the common man.
As the Telegraph article shows, Britain is meddling in the politics of Kenya through the witness protection program of the ICC and what’s more they are supporting the wrong man – Raila Odinga instead of Uhuru who is very popular in Kenya and will act as conciliatory figure in a country where conciliation is much needed. The irony of all this is that Raila had recommended Uhuru to succeed him during the days of the Orange alliance and Kanu politics. ICC will cause immense damage in Kenya. ICC is a political court. Uhuru is immensely popular in Kenya. He has the majority vote in Kenya.
