Saddam Reportedly forced to watch South Park the Movie

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/28082006/34...on-capers.html

Quote:

Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein is being made to watch his appearance in cult cartoon South Park while he is behind bars.

The deposed leader on trial in Iraq was featured in the movie spin-off as the lover of the devil. South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut featured Hussein and Satan attempting to take over the world together.

Speaking at the Edinburgh International Television Festival, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone said US Marines guarding the former dictator during his trial for genocide were making him watch the movie "repeatedly".

"I have it on pretty good information from the Marines on detail in Iraq that they showed him the movie last year. That's really adding insult to injury. I bet that made him really happy," Stone said.
If so I wonder if he thought they portrayed him correctly with him and Satan and all. LOL

I think this was unnecessary humilliation and an abuse of authority but that´s just me.

No one can have fun anymore. They weren't torturing him, maybe they wanted to lift his spirit, even though he knows he will probably be executed.

You can have fun as long as it´s not on someone else´s expense.

The man murdered hundreds of thousands of his own people, and turned his sons loose to rape women in the streets. There is no humiliation too great for him.

I knew someone would come up with this argument. You´re basically saying that "two wrongs make a right".

The reason why is because it is humilliating. You reall think all they did was play it for him? They laughed and demeaned the guy. That´s what I disagree with. Unnecessary humilliation isn`t fair or right.

I have nothing but contempt for this guy but I want him to be punished with the law and not by some idiot soldier who felt like acting like a high school kid. I´m sure that the law does not include watching a movie that mocks you as punishment.

Awwww geeeeee Pooorr Saddam!! Give me a break.



Two wrongs don't make a right. Are genocide and a movie equated as wrongs?

Or how about the trial? If he's gonna get executed a movie is small beans. By the way, did you know that Saddam reportedly likes Doritos?

Let me ask you this then, what law allows you to do this? Or to decide how you will humilliate someone?

Basically, who gave you the right to humilliate someone? Because no matter who you are and who is on the receiving end you have no right to decide how to humilliate someone. Who gave these soldiers the right to humilliate the man? Who decides this?
