Thank me later

Europe's struggle to define itself in recent years has moved me to lend a hand.

SARDONIC sâr'dânik adj.

Lack of European experts has held up the excavation of mass graves in Iraq, according to an American human rights lawyer working on the investigation.

Greg Kehoe said the experts were not joining in because evidence might be used to sentence Saddam Hussein to death.

Europe: useless to the crust mantle core.

Mr Kehoe, who spent five years investigating mass graves in Bosnia for the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, said he wanted to have collected far more evidence by now, and cited the delay as one reason why the IST has yet to issue formal charges against Saddam and 11 other former regime leaders.

If you don't hear the shrill wailing of Amnesty International, they're probably hyperventilating.

More of the same from the international community. Like your lasertag post, how can the European legal establishment keep a straight face?

Let the record show that they seem to be more concerned with the life of murderous thug, Saddam, than of the innocent lives he's taken (i.e. all that's left of them: their memory). True justice for the crime of their mass murder is the only way to honor such atrocity now.

Maybe they are stonewalling in order to give themselves time to cover-up more oil-for-food/money/WMDs deals that are yet to be discovered. I doubt France was the only country dealing with Saddam, and this could come out in his trial. So, it's in the EUs best interest to delay the trial as long as possible. Eh?

Good point.

I know its very nationally centered of me, but I'm curious if there may be a delay till after the US elections? If a majority of the Europeans are truly rooting for Kerry (as I'm pretty sure they are though I admit I don't keep up on their polls), more info uncovered=more to report=more reminders of Bush accomplisments pre-election.

Greg Kehoe said the experts were not joining in because evidence might be used to sentence Saddam Hussein to deathOr help Bush. And we can't have that, now can we.

If it's anti-Bush, then they didn't learn anything from the Guardian. They should help with the sites, and then scream furiously that all their work is being corrupted by the demonic Americans to fry the cherubic little despot.
