Saddam has been hanged!

Postby Shazzam » Sat Dec 30, 2006 11:14 am

This isn't a political or reglious post it is just a fact 3.00 est Saddam was hanged. His daughters have requested that his body be returned to them until such time as he can be buried in Iraq. I hope they aren't holding their breath.

Anyway that is the news!!

I wanted to start this thread but I thought everybody would think it was political :D Anyway I heard the news last night that he was about to be hanged and I thought oh my dog! We are still hanging people in the 21st century! Everybody here already knows I'm against death penalty, I think that acting like he did means not only to low ourselves to his own level but also to become monsters like him. As far as I'm concerned, he could have rotten in prison.

Yes the death penalty does seem a bit messy doesn't it. I think they should have just done something like lock Saddam in a cell with a grizzly bear. If the grizzly wanted to eat him, well that would be his business, not ours, right?
