The end of tyrants

For me, the worst thing on earth is the existence of dictators. The existence of dictators and unfree regimes is the cause of all war, all genocide, all famine, and almost all poverty on earth.

For me, the best thing on earth is the toppling of dictators. Those rare, glorious moments when good triumphs, and evil is humiliated, just like in the movies.

In real life, evil normally wins. Evil normally stays in power for years, sits at the UN, is never punished, grows fat and rich, and retires to the South of France. But sometimes - all too rarely - evil loses, and is forced to face justice on earth.

The killing of Ceausescu in 1989 was one such moment. The capture of Saddam in 2003 is another. Would that all tyrants end up hiding in a dirt hole from the armies of free men.



The greatest moment in world events since 1989 - "a moment when some kind of cosmic justice breaks through the clouds"
See hi-res version.

The killing of Uday and Qusay Hussein, July 2003



The capture of Saddam Hussein, Dec 2003


Rejoice, rejoice

The capture of Saddam is a time for pure joy. For everyone who cares about human rights, this is a glorious day, the best day in the world since that fantastic day the Berlin Wall came down. This is a day for laughing at tyranny and laughing at all the enemies of human rights who are gutted today.




"We got him!"
As Andrew Sullivan says, this is "a moment when some kind of cosmic justice breaks through the clouds".
There is no God to bring justice on this earth. But there is America, and the U.S. military.



The trial of Saddam, 2004 to 2006



The execution of Saddam, Dec 2006

The execution of Saddam was disturbing. This should have been a moment for universal justice. Justice at last for the hundreds of thousands of innocents he had callously put in mass graves. For the children he raped, tortured, set on fire, mutilated and gassed. The execution of this monster should have been a great day for the world.

And yet the execution was attended by al-Sadrist scum, chanting the name of the new torturer, the heir to Saddam, the man who by all rights should be executed next: Muqtada al-Sadr. Shame on the Iraqi government for this fiasco, for turning this noble event (the killing - at last! - of a dictator) into a seedy, sordid Shia Islamist sectarian killing.




)

The disrespect that should be shown to all dictators:
A rare sight in Hollywood: Slagging off a real life butcher while he is still alive.
Saddam has sex with Satan in hell in the movie South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999).
And search for copies.

See script:
"Satan: Behold. The first signs of my reign have all come true: the fall of an empire, the coming of a comet. And now, when the blood of these Canadians touches American soil, it will be our time to rise!
Saddam: [arousing himself] Yeah! Yeah! Man, I'm gettin' so hot! Let's fuck!
Satan: [insulted] Do you always think about sex? I'm talkin' about very important stuff here!
Saddam: Ah, I'm just excited about taking over the world! Come on!
Satan: [slips back into bed] Is sex the only thing that matters to you?
Saddam: I love you.
Satan: I want to believe that.
Saddam: So whaddaya say we shut off that light and get close, huh?
Satan: [having sex] Uh!
Saddam: Yeah, you like that, don't you, bitch?"




The death of Abu Abbas, Mar 2004




The killing of Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, Mar 2004

In March 2004, justice finally came calling for the evil mass murderer of innocents, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, when an IDF helicopter gunship fired air-to-surface missiles at his wheelchair.





Killing Wheelchair-Bound People With Missiles Is Awesome, The Onion, May 12, 2004.
"I heard about the Israeli rocket attack on that old handicapped Hamas guy, and I'm sure a lot of people had the same reaction I did: Whatever reason the army had for doing it, blowing up a guy in a wheelchair with a missile is unbelievably, absolutely fucking awesome! .... The point is they totally fucking launched a missile at the guy's wheelchair from a helicopter! That's some grade-A Bam Margera video-game shit, and I for one am fucking stoked that they did it. ... Even if it doesn't become standard procedure, it's awesome that it happened once."





The killing of Abdul Aziz Rantissi, Apr 2004




The death of Arafat, Nov 2004

  

The claim that Arafat was "elected"

Supporters of the Palestinians sometimes claim that Arafat was "elected".


The claim that Napoleon was "elected":
  • I have since discovered to my surprise that many people admire the French dictator Napoleon and even claim he was "elected". The logic is similar to the logic that approves of Arafat's and Castro's "elections".
  • Napoleon got into power (shared) in 1799, pretty much became a dictator in 1800, and was Emperor from 1804 to 1814. He was forced out but returned again briefly in 1815.
  • No election with an actual choice of opposition was ever held under Napoleon. There was no election between 1798 and after Napoleon in 1815.
  • There were instead four coercive communist-style "referenda" in which there was no choice of opposition to the dictator but you could merely approve or disapprove of his plans. These fraud votes were in 1800 and 1802 and 1804 and 1815. All four returned over 99 percent "yes". Albania and North Korea would be proud. And he didn't even bother with these fraud votes after 1804.
  • Martin Kettle, The Guardian, 17 June 2015, says that Napoleon, under whom no one had a vote, would have "liberated" the UK, where about 300,000 people had a vote. Right.
  • Ronan McGreevy, Irish Times, 18 June 2015, says modern Ireland follows the values not of Wellington but of Napoleon, who "was committed to republican values of equality and freedom under the law." Delusional. He complains about Wellington raising the property threshold for voting in Ireland to 10, while praising Napoleon, who did not allow voting at all!


Tributes to Arafat at his death

Airport security, Arafat's gift to the world.
Millions of people suffer through these checks every day at every airport in the world because of this bastard.

The death of Milosevic, Mar 2006

The European fascist butcher Slobodan Milosevic died not in freedom but rather in custody, awaiting verdict, after 5 years in prison, Mar 2006.



The killing of Al-Zarqawi, June 2006

The religious psychopath and butcher of Iraq Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed by the U.S. Military in June 2006.

He was killed by two 500-pound laser-guided bombs, dropped by two U.S. F-16 jets, laser-guided home by awesomely brave U.S. special forces on the ground.

Aftermath



The death of Pinochet, Dec 2006



The killing of Bin Laden, May 2011




Celebrations at U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis.
Captain Robert E. Clark gives a rousing speech. He says that on 9/11: "I remember getting my crew together. .. I told them, 'I don't know when, I don't know how, but someday we're going to get that son of a bitch.' ... Today we made a statement to the world, that you can hit us, you can knock us down, but we're gonna get up, and when we do we will find you and kick your ass."
The future generation of young jihadi-killers start chanting: "I Believe That We Have Won! I Believe That We Have Won!" Look out Ayman al-Zawahiri and Anwar al-Awlaki, you're next! It is the mission of these young men and their space age technology to kill you. And most of the world supports them and cheers them on.
And search and search.



When Seal Team Six come into your house, you should adopt a posture of total submission if you want to live. You would have to clearly demonstrate no possible threat, no suicide belt or hidden weapon. Bin Laden clearly did not do this. He was more like the bad guy at the end of the movie Taken, with a similar result. "Leon Panetta, the CIA director, said .. he did not believe bin Laden had a chance to speak before he was shot in the head."



Bin Laden is killed in South Park's "Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants" (2001).
And search.



Bin Laden is killed in South Park's "It's a Jersey Thing" (2010).
"Tango is down. Tango is down."
And search.



"A" is the Pakistan Military Academy in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
Just down the road, at "B", is Bin Laden's safe house, where he lived in peace from 2005 to 2011, no doubt protected by the people at "A".
Incredibly, in 2008, US troops were in Abbottabad, training Pakistani troops to hunt jihadists, just up the road from where Osama Bin Laden was living!
British troops were there in 2005.
From Google Maps.
From 2003 to 2005, Bin Laden also lived peacefully in Pakistan, not far away, in the village of Chak Shah Muhammad, near Haripur (see map).



The real story of Bin Laden's Islamic "funeral"!



The comic satire turns out to be true:
In 2011, NMA produced this comic animation of Bin Laden living happily in Pakistan, being stopped for speeding and let go.
In 2013, we found out it was true! Bin Laden lived happily in Pakistan for 9 years, from 2002 to 2011. He lived in Abbottabad from 2005 to 2011.
And he was even stopped for speeding and let go!




All tyrants must be deposed this century

All of the world's dictators must be deposed or killed, if the world is ever to have peace.




"Think of every moment when some poor soul believed he was about to die, every moment spent in hellish prisons, every person tortured beyond imagining, every child dumped in a mass grave, every person of faith treated as an enemy of the state. To watch the perpetrator of this extraordinary evil brought low - into a rat-hole in the ground - is a privilege. It happens rarely. It is a moment when some kind of cosmic justice breaks through the clouds, and all the petty wrangling and mistakes and political jockeying fall away in the face of liberation from inescapable fear and terror and brutality. It was a day of joy. Nothing remains to be said right now. Joy."
- Andrew Sullivan (back when he was good) on the capture of Saddam.

"God bless that fist Samir. That punch was from ALL Iraqis."
- The Iraqi blogger Iraq the Model on the US soldier (an Iraqi exile from Saddam) who captured Saddam and gave the dictator his first (and only - until his execution) physical assault after 30 years of genocide.

"Congratulations, America. Congratulations, Mr. President: You got bin Laden. Good riddance! [Cheers, applause.]"
- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Address to U.S. Congress, May 24, 2011.
