Yes, sorry. That's what comes of only posting in JC when it's 6 in the morning and I'm still awake. That whole post made absolutely no sense addressed to Mikefule.

Neither is in the least bit legal. Or were you referring to embryos and fetuses? A common mistake made by the anti-choice crowd.

But you seem to be saying you don't understand what it means to be liberal in terms of not being conservative. In American terms, being liberal simply means you're to the left of the so-called center (wherever *that* is), while being conservative means you're to the right. You can be a little bit liberal, a lot liberal, or over-the-top liberal. Same thing for being conservative. Neither is inherently good or evil, or better than the other.

I wish to thank you all for educating spazdude222 about this most important matter, without which we may not be able to converse intelligently.

Saddam Hussein was NOT a liberal.

Last night on TV I saw a documentary wich made me think immediately about this thread.
It was about people who searched for war criminal nazis after WWII. Some of them were found about 15 years ago.
The documentary shows that many nazis (officers, doctors, guardians...) were hung by the US like a few days/hours after they were judged.
America was considered as a civilized nation at that time, just like now.
So I can't understand some people speaking about hanging people in a "more respectful way" (hellooooooooo Georges ).
This only shows that the real matter is "the good old death penalty question". The way people are sentenced to death is just a "detail" used by some people to feel less guilty about the real issue.
As Catwood (if I remember well) said earlier it's not either about why the person is sentenced to death it's about being pro or anti death penalty.
Killing Sadam (and his 2 "friends") was a great mistake, but Irak should not be tought how to behave by nations who also execute people.

Note: This is not meant to be an anti-american post. We french also carry our loads of torture and death during Algeria war... My father fought during that war and I wouldn't be proud to know what happened at that time (if only he could speak about it)

The 60s radicals would be insulted by the term liberal, because radicals created change, while liberals accomplished nothing. Imagine if Thomas Jefferson and those attempting to found this nation were only "liberal"--we'd still be a British colony.


You can be a little bit liberal=liberal
a lot liberal=progressive
or over-the-top liberal=radical

Funny that peopel like Bugman think the USA won the war.

Even conservatives like charles krauthammer are against the "surge" of troops in Iraq.

USA installed a hopelessly sectarian Maliki govt. It protects Sadr, as we saw when Maliki ordered the lifting of US barricades set up around Sadr City in search of a notorious death squad leader.

It is enmeshed with Iran, as we saw when the Maliki govt forced the USA to release Iranian agents found in the compound of one of his coalition partners.

The Saddam hanging illuminated the sectarian nature of his govt.

Will the next Bush installed govt hang Maliki for his support of death squads???
