Has the video of Saddam’s execution changed your view of capital punishment?

    He should have been hanged. He committed crimes, was found guilty of those crimes in a court of law, and the prescribed punishment for those crimes in that country is death. Therefore, he got the rightful penalty for his actions.

    Should he have been hanged in the MANNER in which he perished? I suppose that’s debatable, there did seem to be quite a bit of “jeering”, if you will, going on, but that is just human nature. Could have been conducted with a little more dignity, but the correct result was nonetheless carried out.

    Doesn’t mean we are to hate him – in fact, we are supposed to LOVE him, as Christ loved him and died for him just as He died for you and me. But he was still subject to the penalties for his sins here on Earth. Question is, was he ready to accept the penalty for his sins after death?

    We turned Saddam over to a Shia lynch mob. What is there to be proud of?

    Justice? We have invaded the middle east to secure the oil resources exactly like the Japanese did in the south Pacific during WW2.

    Is there anything about this war that makes you proud to be a U.S. citizen?

    I hope the new Congress will investigate the current president and his crew and let the chips fall where they may.

    Done. Have a nice day.

    “We turned Saddam over to a Shia lynch mob. What is there to be proud of?”

    We turned him over to people of his own country that he brutally dictated for many years. He was tried in a court of law in his country, by a judge of his people, and found guilty, and rightly so. I agree, for Saddam, there’s not much to be proud of, but we did the right thing by capturing him, and turning him over to have justice served.

    “Justice? We have invaded the middle east to secure the oil resources exactly like the Japanese did in the south Pacific during WW2.”

    Would you please tell me where you buy your gas? Is your gas cheaper, or more expensive, since this whole thing started? Have you heard of any oil being “secured” and brought back over here? Me neither.

    “Is there anything about this war that makes you proud to be a U.S. citizen?”

    Absolutely. The fact that we live in a free society where we can say and do what we please, and most importantly worship whom we please, without fear of retribution. I’m also proud of the fact that we as a nation recognized that another nation who doesn’t have that freedom due to a tyrannical dictator needed some help, and we gave it to them.

    “I hope the new Congress will investigate the current president and his crew and let the chips fall where they may.”

    Investigate them for what? For entering a war you don’t agree with? Is that a crime, now?

    Saddam was under our guard every minute up until we turned over to the Shia mob that hung him. As soon as he was hung he was given back.

    Does that sound like something you’d like to see happen here in the U.S.?

    Yeah, right. The middle east oil resources had nothing to do with our invading? Want to buy a bridge?

    OK, so we got rid of their dictator. When they are free to establish yet another Islamic republic in Iraq will that make it better for them? For us? Get a grip, those folks didn’t ask us to be their saviors. They want Iran to be their saviors. At least Kurdistan may come out of this thing in a good way.

    Bush has had a free ride for six years. It’s time to pay up. If he hasn’t done anything criminal then he’s got nothing to worry about.

    I’ll quit – you can’t reason with someone who doesn’t want to even try to be reasonable.

    No. He should have died in one of the same torturous fashions in which he killed hundreds of thousands of others.

    Has the video of Saddam’s execution changed your view of capital punishment?

    Yes. Too quick. Too easy. Less pain than stubbing your toe. Not near the agony suffered by those innocent folks we’ve seen Saddam’s followers hack the heads off of on web videos. It’s ridiculous. Can’t something be developed to attempt justice? I dunno … maybe a meat grinder or something?

    Yes, he had a chance to receive Christ and his eternal forgiveness. It doesn’t seem he accepted that. I’m not talking about that anyway. I’m talking about justice.

    Ah, there is a Christian thought.
