Saddam is Dead

They hanged him today. I feel mixed emotions. I have no doubts he did messed up things. Crimes against humanity and what not. I just have this thing in my gut that tells me this is barbaric. Why not life in prison? Or something like that? Did he get a fair trial? Oh well. Better people have been executed before.

You completely hit it on the head with one sentence.

"Better people have been executed before."

I had a similar conversation with a friend. It probably comes down to a mixed feeling about capital punishment in general more than Saadam specifically. JMO, though.

You are right, Loralee, it probably has more to do with Capital Punishment.

Michael: Thanks.
