Fox News is disgusting.

It's called catering to the lowest common denominator.

Everyone scrambling to get the most dramatic pic/still allowed on TV.
Madness. not watching any longer.

What did this man turn out to be this man?

It is sad because I think the nature vs nurture comes into play here.

Oh, this just in: In his written statement, Bush said that Saddam's execution "will not end the violence in Iraq".

How do you say...NO SHIT SHERLOCK!

Do me a favor Mr. President; don't talk about 'the violence in Iraq' as though it's a reality external to your own actions that you bare no responsibility in creating.

Although I don't support the sentence at all, and feel the trial was merely a show trial (the appeals court ordered the death within a month - so let's do it the VERY NEXT DAY ), I must admit that the world does seem a little better without Saddam Hussein in it.

While I don't celebrate his death, I don't mourn for his life.

The absolute barbarity of some of the posts in this thread absolutely disgusts me, and really is starting to make me want to put a few people on my ignore list...

ETA: This hanging was illegal. It is Eid in Iraq as of midnight (Iraq time) yesterday, and it is also illegal by Iraqi law for someone to be executed on an Islamic holiday. Saddam was killed at just before 6 am on the first day of Eid - just goes to show how bloodthirsty GWB actually is.

I wonder how likely it is that an American President can be brought up on war crimes trials? Lord knows Dubya deserves it.

For me it's because you can see the fear and defeat on his face. It's no longer about what he did, whether or not he got the trial any individual deserves, but just one man scared to die.

He was a despicable leader, I don't think that even needs to be said, but I feel like all this media hype makes this really no different than a mob at the center of town shouting to hang the witch.

I'm not going to excuse him or try to justify anything because I do think he was a sorry excuse for a human being, but he was a human being just the same. How do I know I wouldn't have turned out the same in his situation? And there's something about hanging especially that makes me feel sick.

Can't wait to see footage of this on YouTube...

Not. I just know it's going to show up on there anyway.

Oh, well that's just typical.

Are those in favour of "eye for an eye" barbarian punishments such as hanging now going to demand those who broke this law also be hung on a holiday as equal retribution? Or, as I suspect, is this desire to hang Saddam just irrational bloodlust?

Saddams execution was not murder, it was just.

Justin, I am continuely shocked by your cold, callous statements involving the death of people. You freak me out.

CTU2fan its not a matter of feeling "sorry" for Saddam, i don't feel sorry for him, he was a dispicable man, but does that mean he deserves to die? No. I am against the death penalty in ALL CASES.

But I also respect other countries laws, and seeing this is what happens under the law, so be it. I don't agree with it, but i also don't agree with going into someelse country and telling them what to do.

OH well, we'll see what consequences happen with this, I hope nothing will come of it, the last thing is to see more innocent civilians suffer.
Well I am sorry you feel that way. But If your a religious person, then God gave us a right to seek punishment towards individuals as I see.

Plus this is how I feel, that execution is a correct form of punishment for murderers. I am (as of right now) not going about calling anyone tree huggers. If you feel it is wrong then in your eyes your right.
