SEND IN THE CLOWNS
"Send in the clowns, don't bother their here". Judy Collins could have been singing about the circus trial of Saddam Hussein, he is to be hanged and the yanks, who helped him into power are cheering and some Republicans are salivating at the prospect, and the boost their electoral prospects will get. Is that a coincidence, am I being cynical ? We in Britain do not allow capital punishment and, consequently there should be no problem in distancing ourselves from the decision to execute Saddam. Capital Punishment is barbaric and uncivilised, that's why it's so popular in backward societies like the USA, leave them to it, no capital punishment means exactly that with no exceptions, that's how we can describe ourselves as a decent country.
