The Justice in Executing Saddam Hussein

Saddam Hussein was tried and hanged for his disproportionate actions against the town of Dujail. That alone was the official justification for his execution, without consideration of gassing Kurds, secret police, torture or other acts for which he could have been tried.

It has been argued that Fallujah is Bush's Dujail. But it can also be argued that the accumulated whole of the war crimes in Iraq is Bush's Dujail.

Prime Minister Olmert of Israel has his own Dujail. It's called the disproportionate assault and collective punishment of Lebanon in July 2006.

If Justice is blind and balanced, then we should, someday, witness Bush and Olmert being punished for their Dujails.
