Tom Delay And Saddam Hussein Get Their Day In Court
Today, two of the world's most ruthless politicians got their day in court. Both were the perfect portrait of total arrogance when faced with serious charges. For Delay, it was more of the samesmiling and smirking while facing felony charges. In the case of Saddam Hussein, it was a futher display of more arrogance when victims testified about the terrible human rights abuses of this ruthless dictator.
Regardless of the validity of the specific charges against both, the testimony of the witnesses, or other specifics, the lesson should still be clear. Both are arrogant men who abused the privilege to rule only to behave above the law, rather than respect the law, to destroy political opponents rather than gain their respect. This is not the very first time either has been accused of ruthless political dealings. Both have been the subject of concerns again, again and again.
Far more decent men gain the respect of others, including those who sometimes disagree with them on some matters. But men who behave in a awful manner and abuse the privilege to rule end up having a day in court.
