Saddam Hussein Hanging LIVE Thread

Posted on 12/29/2006 9:11:00 AM PST by AVNevis

Since it now seems very imminent, I decided that it was an appropriate time to start this up. Links to information and pictures (if we get them) can be posted here.

Swingin by John Anderson

There's a little girl in our neighborhood,
her name is Charlotte Johnson and she's really lookin' good.
I had to go and see her, so I called her on the phone.
I walked over to her house and this was going on:

Her brother was on the sofa, eatin' chocolate pie,
her Mama was in the kitchen cuttin' chicken up to fry.
Her daddy was in the backyard rollin' up a garden hose,
I was on the porch with Charlotte, feelin' love down to my toes...
and we were Swingin', yes we were Swingin'...
Little Charlotte she's as pretty as the angels when they sing,
I can't believe I'm out here on her front porch in this swing,
just-a-swingin,

Yeah, and we'll be swingin, yes, we'll be swinging.
Little Charlotte she's as pretty as the angels when they sang,
I can't believe I'm out here on the front porch in the swang,
just-a-swangin.

Now Charlotte she's the darlin', she's the apple of my eye,
and when I'm on the swang with her it makes me almost high.
And Charlotte is my lover and she has been since the sprang,
I just can't believe it started on her front porch in this swang.

Just a swangin, well just a swangin,
Little Charlotte she's as pretty as the angels when they sang,
I can't believe I'm out here on the front porch in the swang,
just-a-swangin.

I said, Little Charlotte she's as pretty as the angels when they sang,
I can't believe I'm out here on her front porch in the swang,
just-a-swangin.

"There is no shortage of execution songs:"

Shortly beforae he died, Johnny Cash released perhaps his best song (in my view) and it is quite appropriate here: "When the Man Comes Around".

The next thing Saddam will see after that trap door opens is a Great White Throne, and that won't go very well for him either. No appeal from that judgment.

From the NYSE broadtape:


Saddam May Hang Within Hours - Senior Iraqi Source [EXCERPTED]

BAGHDAD, Dec 29 (Reuters) - Saddam Hussein could be hanged
within hours, a senior Iraqi source told Reuters on Friday after
Saddam's lawyer said U.S. forces had handed over the former
president to Iraqi authorities for execution.

"Things have changed in the past three hours. There were
some issues ... and now that is resolved so it seems it's
possible he may be hanged tonight," the source, who is in a
senior position of authority, said after a day of confusion.

However, the start of the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha on
Saturday raised the possibility of a delay until after the
week-long holiday is over, he added: "It's not certain," he
said.

Yup, I remembered that after I posted. Been quite a while since I heard it played. I was just about to post the lyrics but you got there first. Thanks. With a few word changes it would be perfect, don't you think?

I have been discussing with some friends what President Bush will say when the execution finally happens.

We all agree that the President will include the words May God have mercy on his soul.

Dubya is that kind of man.

This is Saddam's cent jours moment.

All of his planning has been focused on today.

Will he die, or be President of Iraq?

I say, 65-35 he dies - but his chances of being Presidnet have never been better.

We'll see.

The day is Friday....

Friday is the Muslim sqabbath. They will wait till the first day of the week and that is Saturday 12 29. It is ir nearly is the last day of the Arab month as well. very soon perhaps sundaor or monday the new month begins. That is the Hajj month so I think it means Saddam dies on Saturday.

" CNN's coverage right now is absolutely hysterical. They're in an absolute panic."

Last night, CNN had on a pathologist to discuss the mechanics of hanging-complete with a plastic cervical spine.
The anchor was very concerned with the potential suffering involved in a hanging.
The pathologist said there probably isn't much, but, the anchor was not placated.
I expect that tonight Brian Williams will give the mother of all send offs to Saddam .
He'll probably do the maudlin hat trick and tie in Ford, James Brown and Saddam in one roiling, overwrought soliloquy.
