In my opinion, this execution today was a reprehensible crime on the part of the puppet Iraqi government and its master the USA. Enlightened countries long ago abolished the death penalty.

I wonder how many innocent Iraqis and Westerners alike will pay for this crime with their lives.

i have no problem with saddam's death. only with the manner of it. premeditated murder in the name of a nation-state can never be morally justified. they should just have dumped him in a kurd or shiite area and let the local populations deal with him.

What happened to my post?

so it wasn't my imagination ... i think there were also 1 or 2 other posts on this topic that have disappeared. was not a moderator delete. i noticed a few mySQL errors in the admin log; i can only speculate that it was a system fault.

XSBIR, I fully and wholeheartedly agree with you. Not because of the undoubted carnage that will now follow, and not because I am anti death penalty.

I object because Saddam did what he though best for his country. And to be honest, based upon the current situation, although he was a brutal dictator, he knew how to hold Iraq together.

I am saddened and disappointed at his execution. Notihng has been achieved for the loss of a life.
