Well said, indra. I agree with every word.

Life is weaker than death, and death is weaker than love.: Khalil Gibran.

RIP Saddam. Rest your troubled mind and weary heart. What's done is done. Let it go. RIP.

My general reason for opposing the death penalty anywhere - murdering a murderer....how does this make you better than them?

Black day for common sense; red rag to an already pissed off bull.

I usually can agree with this...however since we're on the topic of terrible dictators...

If I had fought through years of mud and trenches in France and found Hitler alive in his bunker, I probably would have shot the fucker. So it is hard for me to chide other forum members on the Saddam execution

of course, of course. that's human.

but the legal system cannot be based on moral outrage. if it is, it is most likely barbaric.

Sometimes we just need to admit that we're not in a postion of judging. It's great to have an opinion on everything, but that doesn't make us brighter or more educated or whatever. Maybe we shouldn't have any opinions (cause it's hard for some people not to have very extreme opinions here) but just feelings.

This happened, and we've got different feelings on it. That's it. I think it's useless to imagine our reaction if we were Saddam Hussein's relative or one of his victims's relative. I mean, what would it change?

We're not God, we're not judges, we're not in Iraq, we are just witnesses of a dictator's execution. I think our feelings about it are extremely personal, and expressing them on this board may be quite ill-considered in regards to the people who really have something to do with this execution.

But that's different mate , that was in the middle of a war , u were a soldier , it's a whole different game

It's not like Saddam without any political power left , able to do nothing ..... that could have spent the rest of life in jail .... And Comes whatever the US or Iraq gov itself comes , and let's give something to news , in answer to the point , and let's hang him

In the end of the day , I can't help but agree with this headline of a newspaper here :

Saddam : Victory of Bush , Defeat of Justice

Saddam's execution serves the interest of the White House of leaving Iraq in a less shameful way

i've tried to come up with messed up shit... but this takes the cake.

this has nothing to do with me being for the death penalty
cause i'm not for it.

this has to do with you

I do feel sorry for any human who has to die to a certain extent. The thought of him suffering does sadden me to a point, but much less than that thought of just about anyone else suffering. Is that wrong? I don't think so. His suffering doesn't make me happy in the slightest, it's the fact that justice has been done that I like. Happy though... ehhh I wouldn't use that word. I think he got what he deserved.

I do think it's silly to make threads like this though. Yes, the dead do deserve respect to a point, but Saddam was an EVIL man. There is no getting around that. The thing that gets to me is that a man who caused pain and suffering for millions of people and familes is getting more respect here today than the millions of other innocent people who live honest lives. It's disturbing. I'd rather see a "RIP old lady down the street from me who died last month" thread than this. It's much more deserved.

To act like Saddam was somehow "misunderstood" is silly. He was purely evil and it was no one's fault but his own. His evil actions weren't forced on him by the devil or unfortunate circumstances or anything of the sort. He was an evil man. I don't feel like I can say that enough because it doesn't seem that anyone here understands the concept of evil. Should I make a RIP Hitler now?

And I also don't understand why you think people like him deserve to be in a "better place".

another ruler left this world , who's next ??
Saddam behaved like a man those last days
is he guilty , yes
but there are other ways
for example , shave his moustache everyday
or work in jail
and we just keep eating massmedia spinach
