Sydney Morning Herald readers haven’t been this outraged since Saddam received his humiliating dental inspection:
Saddam Hussein is a tarnished US trophy. His depraved executioners symbolise all that sickens the majority opposing the Iraq nightmare …
Ron Sinclair Bathurst
Excuse me; Saddam’s executioners are depraved? Lord knows what Ron might make of someone (hint: initials SH) who murdered and tortured many thousands without trial.
We cannot condone these events without recognising that some part of our own freedoms has now been violated and threatened.
Kathy Bradley Wollstonecraft
Damn; our freedom to run violent dictatorships is now threatened. Kurds will overrun the place.
At the end of his article, your paper had the legend “Bob Ellis is a writer”. Bob Ellis is much much more than that – he is a profound writer. His words are truly magical and so pertinent at a time when the world seems to be going completely insane.
Merv Bartlett Pallara (Qld)
Can’t disagree with that; Bob’s writing would only be pertinent in an insane world.
A great deal of ghoulishness was exhibited by the media in the way the death of Saddam Hussein was reported at the weekend. The images of the noose around his neck, one TV station advertising a phone video of his death, it all seemed determined to portray how he went to his death and how he behaved.
Surely the time to be concerned about his “behaviour” was when he was still in power and had control over the Iraqi people. How did we behave then?
Brenton Mcgeachie Queanbeyan
How did we behave? We invaded Iraq, liberated the country, dragged Saddam out of a spider hole, and handed him over to the Iraqis, who put him on trial and hanged him. A win/win/win/win/win/win, so far as I can tell. Give it a few years, emails We Are Lumberjacks, and Saddamite sobsters will have constructed a new cultural icon:
Kenneth Williams was on to these clowns back in 1981.
