If we could have assassinated Hitler, would we have? Did we try? Did we simply not have people good enough to do it?
Saddam…What would the political fallout be if he suddenly showed up stiff?
And finally, could a political assassination be carried out with no apparent blame placed on any one nation?
There are conflicts around the world that could and would be lessened if certain leaders were not in power. Why is political assassination not considered a valid form of warfare? Mean nasty dictator shot between the eyes, his people now live better lives, happier economy etc…etc…Why not?
Bush, apparently said he wants Saddam dead. If Assassination is internationally illegal…how can he say this? Who wouldn’t want Saddam dead? I am not familiar with the international treaties that prohibit assassinations, but I seem to remember there being some kind of treaty forbidding such acts…
