3. Execution Could Have Been More Dignified

But any execution is by its very nature, an ugly job. But lack of decorum does not take away from the inherent justice of his execution. I'm sure the British would have done a nicer job although I recall reading descriptions of executions in 17th & 18th century England that were really very barbaric. Anyway, Mr. Brown is just making a political statement to get support from British Muslims. Brown-nosing, as it were.

6. I agree with you Terry..
who are the ,   winners here?   (01.07.07)
this is a last minute attempt to do some lickin before he runs for elections. For all of Saddams atrocities nothing was gained by his complain after the fact is kind of lame considering there was plenty of time, for the powers that be to intervene should they have so chosen but they didnt and this is the outcome.
7. yes, saddam needed respect that he gave to no one he killed
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (01.07.07)
they should be glad saddam wasn't put to death the same way he himself killed thousands of others.
8. A nice hanging
mark ,   raanana   (01.07.07)
This would have been a nice hanging had it been done 25 years ago. Think of all the lives that would have been saved

William E. Weible ,   Lake Havasu City, AZ   (01.08.07)
All this up roar over the killing of a killer...NONSENSE..He deserved what he got which was handed downby a legal court under the new govt. constitution.
12. Taunting Saddam
Lois ,   Jacksonville,FL   (01.08.07)
WOW, no- wonder people all around the world are so sick and tired of the Political Correctness to all that happens in the world. Where were ANY of you when this murdered did what he did to his people. YOU ALL should be ashamed and resign IMMEDIATELY. We in civilized countries of the world need to get people in office who will govern and rule by law NOT by their back pockets. ALSO< have yous topped to think of how Saddam would have conducted the same justice if he was in charge and hanging say - one of our politicians?
13. European political coerrectness...
DR ,   Florida, USA   (01.08.07)
will cost this world many lives. I guess as long as no one is offended it's ok. When will people start realizing how dumb this is???
14. execution
Sandra ,   Dunedin, USA   (01.08.07)
Why do we care how sudam was hung, treated... he is not important. Maybe we should have let the Iraqi people stone him to death and then like his son's did to women have the dogs attach and eat him up. He deserved no merci.
