REFERENCE THREAD: SADDAM HUSSEIN VIDEOS
YouTube and Google | 12-30-06 | DFU

Posted on 12/30/2006 3:35:59 PM PST by doug from upland

Because the videos may be lost on other threads, perhaps this thread can be the reference for posting.

The hanging video is on Google, and there are some scenes from the trial. There may be other important historical video footage that we shouldn't miss. Please bring them here. Thanks.

I've got the video all the way up to where the noose is tied around his neck on YouTube, I'm not sure if there's any footage past that out yet. If there is please tell me.

Anyway here's the link:

Drudge Report now has the actual hanging video. Don't expect to see much, though. The photographer wasn't exactly a pro.

Here's the whole thing. This is likely an illicit video, ie., made clandestinely, maybe with a camera phone:

No thank you. After Brgs video I swore I will never watch a death video again. Pictures are OK though.

No worries - I only wanted to add that video to your storehouse - and did the copy/paste thing wrong. Apologies.

I think the storehouse idea is excellent.

Thanks. Those are some of the ones people want to overlook. He did unspeakable things to an enormous number of human beings. Justice took far too long.

While I completely agree that the man deserved to die and the world is a better place for it, I cannot understand the desire to watch him be killed.

Really, people now are no better than the masses who used to come to the town square to watch beheadings, stonings, burnings, evisceration, etc. Very base behavior, if you ask me. Nothing but blood lust.

It is enough to know that he is dead.

This YouTube video is mistakenly entitled "Leaked Footage of Saddam's Execution" but it is actually from a March '06 telephone interview with Saddam from Al-Fayhaa TV(Iraq). Saddam threatens Izzat Al-Duri, believes Iraq is nothing without him, he's still the president, and speeches are his bag.

Sorry to have to respectfully disagree. This is not bloodlust. This thread is for the historical record. Justice was served that was long overdue. He was not tortured. His death was very swift.

There's nothing wrong with letting people see the system at work. Public executions serve a valuable purpose which extends far beyond "blood lust." The execution was far more humane than the treatment the Iraqis received from him.

I don't enjoy watching the video, but it's important that Saddam's millions of victims realize that he's really gone for good.

Why would you expect them to be?

And why would being otherwise be "better"?

I completely agree.

I don't enjoy watching the video, but it's important that Saddam's millions of victims realize that he's really gone for good.

I agree also that for the Iraqis who were victimized for so long, watching this would be a sort of catharsis. But I assume you are not one of his millions of victims.

So if you don't enjoy it, why watch it?

Dunno. Just seems more civilized to look the other way. To me there is just something disturbing about the fact that there are people who get a kick out of watching other human beings die, no matter who or what they have done.

Some people need killin, that is obvious. I'm just kind of disappointed that people seek things like this out, just for a thrill. The Nick Berg video is a perfect case in point. Who wants to watch that kind of thing, and for what possible other purpose than a vicarious thrill?

And if you say, "So that we can see the true evil of the enemy we're up against" or some crap like that, I'll bop you on the noggin.
