Well, was it justified? Should he have been hung? Theres been a debate for a couple of weeks now.

Well, would be hard to believe that he did not order murder(and possably much worse) on relatively innocent people, so yeah even if he is executed he kinda deserves it.

But thats not the point...

I don't think his execution would do anything good to the current situation though.

I'm just going to censor myself before I get into trouble.

censor????? yeh i suppose he deserves it but i don't want to shout out insults and stuff. All i'm going to say is he was a very bad man.

I had a link to a video of the execution, but the mods don't like that, so I edited it out.

Well I don't like it either. Watching a man get hanged is not on my wish list.

There are a lot of bad people in the world. Wanna go execute them too?

Anyway, no one has said anything like it in this thread, but I'm sick of the "Saddam is dead" gloating. We actually had no right to decide the fate of Iraq, or kill Saddam. He had done absolutely nothing to us.

Maybe if you weren't so easily offended.

Don't assume that I'm easily offended simply because I don't take pleasure in watching a man die.

Don't assume that I enjoyed watching him die, he was evil, he's dead, end of story.

Iraq is one thing, but
Saddam was tried, convicted, and sentenced by an Iraqui jury - shia, kurds, AND suni's.

Wow, some people on this forum are cold-blooded. What does killing Saddam do? Do we have world peace? Is world hunger solved? He was killed, therefore, he never had the opportunity to realize what he did was wrong.

I aggree. Killing him was not the way to solve anything. Infact I know he was mean but 2 wrongs dont make a right.

Death sentence never solved anything, for the ones who defend that idea, and think that "evil" people should be executed, I pose a question: "Isnt death the definitve flee? The easiest way to escape justice? Because this is no justice."

Well, but eliminating a really dangerous evil person so he will never do evil again is good to the world none the less. Well, not every country have the resources to lock up evil people on the grim hope that they will know their own fault. AND at least we know he will never have an insurrection ever.

Well, I think think the whole "capital punishment" is the topic here. By the laws of the country he is in he is to be executed, and telling them to do otherwise is quite intrusive to their autonomy(if that actually exist) really. Then again we have lots of things to complain about the often violent punishment they use in some countries, but that would be another topic alltogether.

He deserved to be executed. Now he can do no more damage in the world. I stayed awake so many nights wondering if his lackeys would come and free him so he could carry out his plan of world domination.....

Really dangerous? To the world? Uhm...

I was all for lifelong prison, 23 hours a day spend alone in a cell. It's just not right to judge over a person's life or death, no matter what the crimes, and then call it justice. Better call it revenge.

Hussein was certainly not a threat to the world. He was a threat to his political enemies at home, and that's it.
