Doesn't make it more right.

For the record, I'm against capital punishment. You only have one life, and even if you do something as hideous as taking away another person's life, your existence is still "sacred" and should not be done away with. There's also the fact that as long as execution is practiced, innocents will be put to death.

Yes. And when done improperly...

And let's not forget that seeing the executioners' hatred towards Saddam, I perceive the likelyhood of "accidentally" getting certain details wrong to be quite high. I'd much rather Saddam was executed humanely, to the extent you can use that word in the same sentence as "execution".
