    Saddam's execution is 'expected' within the hour.

    May he (even the evil man that he is) be ready to meet God in His Heaven.

    CNN is reporting right now that he has been executed. It happened a few minutes before 10 PM/ET.

    It's a done deal. I pray God has mercy on his soul. He died as he lived, amungst unfair justice and man's eyes trying to see as God. I am so glad there is a righteous judge who knows the innermost parts of each of us.

    What happens now to our troops in Iraq and Afgan? I predict that region is about to become more unstable.

    He's probably currently discussing the Koran with its author. You know who.

    Had to get it over and done!

    Why so quickly, with only a 'kangeroo court' appeals process?

    Why did not those usually most vocal opponents of any 'capital punishment', especially from Europe, not scream loud enough that they could be heard all the way to Washington, D.C., to be overheard in Congress during one of its own 'shouting sessions'?

    Very simple, actually! Dead men tell no tales!

    No Ol' Sad'm! No embarassing tales!

    Ed

    P.S. That is not to take any 'side' in this, per se, by me.

    Your thinking he may have been wrongly accused. Upon review of the evidence, maybe somebody else done it. :laugh: :laugh:

    This guy got just what he deserved. That has nothing to do with the fact that our fingerprints are all over this due to a lack of leadership and honesty.

    oops...was a bit slow typing reply to other thread and missed deadline by that --><-- much. Sort of close to topic so posting here.


    When Saddam was running amok in the 80s the U.S. unleashed the might of it's "Stretch and Yawn" campaign. "Who cares about a few Iraqis, he's annoying Iran for us". Parallels made between America supporting Saddam against Iran and working with Russia against Germany in WWII fall down because the U.S. could have dealt with both Iraq and Iran at same time (depending on Russian response).

    Saddam wasn't declared a monster until the Kuwait invasion *cough*OIL*cough*.

    Rumsfeld was shaking hands with Saddam in '84, and plenty of others were hand in hand with him through 80s, probably thinking to themselves "One hand washes the other"?

    If it wasn't thought that Saddam Insane had links with Osama he would probably still be Iraq's President today....

    One hand washes the other.

    I guess you could say that we could have taken care of Hittler with out the help of Stalin or wait for Hittler to take out the USSR then take care of him. But both are what ifs and not the choices that were made. Stalin was at least twice the criminal that Sadam was.

    Just as Benito Mussolini was shot and hanged by the Italians and Nicoli Ceausescu was shot by the Romanians, Saddam has been hanged by the Iraqis.

    Due process? I'd say so. Iraqi style.

    On this point I disagree but Osama did become a convieniant excuse to tie Saddam to 9-11. WMD's was the main sale but Osama and Al Qaeda ties sweetened the deal a lot.

    We all deserve the same fate as Saddam and had Jesus not died upon the cross for our sins our fate would be hopless. I take no delight in the way he met his demise. I just pray that God will move the nation of Iraq forward and that this will give many some closure.

    Part of the hesitancy in the Iraqi people is their fear Saddam would regain power once the coalition leaves. Killing him subdues those fears with hopes other capable people in the country will come forward and improve the progression of democracy. Let's face it, you have to be somewhat suicidal to run for office over there.

    The way Saddam was tried had to of sent a message regarding the evil in just loving your own nationality and hating others to the point you can kill them with no remorse. So far it appears the only rioting is in Tikrit which was expected. The rest of the country appears to be happy or un-caring one way or the other.

    We know the Saddam loyalist won't stop fighting but perhaps those citizens with mixed feelings will now support coalition presence which would advance the end of the occupation.

    Good post LeBuick.
    Had there not been lessons to be learned from this ordeal then Saddams execution would have been pointless.

    Nicolae Ceausescu and Benito Mussolini simply got lynched. Saddam at least got a real trial.
