Now we know for sure: Ramsey Clark is nuts
Clark: Hanging Saddam Would Cause ChaosClark forgets the reality that there were plenty of Sunnis who were murdered by Saddam's regime. Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds, millions of Iraqis, want nothing less than to see Saddam swinging.
WASHINGTON Oct 5, 2006 (AP)— Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, a member of Saddam Hussein's defense team, predicted on Thursday that a bloodbath would follow should an Iraqi court trying the former president have him executed.
At a news conference, Clark said he feared that should Saddam and the others be hanged, "catastrophic violence" would follow that would lead to "the end of civilization as we know it in the birthplace of civilization, Mesopotamia. Total, unmitigated chaos."
Saddam's Sunni Muslim tribe of 1.5 million would be enraged over what they would consider the revenge killing of the former president by the Shiite-controlled and U.S.-sponsored government, Clark said.
