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.

Isn't all this hanging mullarkey a bit barbaric?

I mean, what did Saddam actually do wrong? He's not the messiah I'd admit, but perhaps he's just a naughty boy.

Ted Bundy had to be dragged from his cell to Old Sparky and it was reported he cried like a little girl.Yeah, he delayed his day for quite a while.

I remember the Fla folks and the "mandatory seat belt law" that was just beginnng to be enforced about this time.

Favorite bumper sticker back then, I'll buckle up when Ted buckles up.

Watches picturing Iraq's former president Saddam Hussein stand on a shelf in a watch repair shop in Tikrit, Iraq, Friday, Dec. 29, 2006. As an Iraqi appeals court upheld Saddam's death sentence on Tuesday, speculation continues about when the sentence would be carried out within the 30 day time frame set by the court.

From DU:

Mortos (1000+ posts) Fri Dec-29-06 08:30 PM
Original message
Who has caused more people to be killed; Saddam or Bush?
Saddam was found guilty of ordering troops to kill 184 people, a truly disgusting inhumane criminal thing to do and it is for that action he has been sentenced to death. Saddam is suspected of causing to be killed (not personally killing) by means of military actions, false imprisonment, kidnapping by secret police, and war within his own country of what, 100,000 - 200,000 human beings? These numbers are all estimates and no one knows how many people died as a direct result of Saddams orders. Saddam committed these acts over a 30 year period during which he was the President of Iraq he was also an ally of the United States for most of his tenure.


In only six short years, George W. Bush has caused, by his direct actions and orders, the deaths of 3,000 U.S. troops, somewhere between 50,000 (by his own estimate) and 600,000 (estimate of "The Lancet" by interviewing people in Iraq) Iraqi civilians and uncounted injuries. He has also allegedly encouraged some of the same acts Saddam has been rightfully villified for; kidnappings, torture, rendition, imprisonment without trial, and retaliatory destruction of entire Iraqi towns.

How do we justify killing one leader who caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands and let another continue his killing spree unabated?

I wonder how Bush would fare in a trial in Iraq?

The Left is horrified because the public is getting a small glimpse of how our own justice system once operated -- before 40 years of liberal deconstruction. They are of course deathly afraid of even a small amount of common sense creeping back into the public conscience.
