[quote]US-led investigators have located nine trenches in Hatra containing hundreds of bodies believed to be Kurds killed during the repression of the 1980s.
The skeletons of unborn babies and toddlers clutching toys are being unearthed, the investigators said.
They are seeking evidence to try Saddam Hussein for crimes against humanity.[/quote]
And you [deleted by moderator] are claiming that the U.S. shouldn’t have bothered?
[quote]Mr Kehoe said that work to uncover graves around Iraq, where about 300,000 people are thought to have been killed during Saddam Hussein’s regime, was slow as experienced European investigators were not taking part.
The Europeans, he said, were staying away as the evidence might be used eventually to put Saddam Hussein to death. [/quote]
Ah, I see. Saddam killed 300,000 so it was wrong to depose him and it would be even wronger to put him to death. Better to give him a palace in exile and a stipend from the French government.
