Saddam will be doing the rope dance very soon, time to die scumbag.
Yes, sir. I agree completely. It takes a well-balanced individual... such as yourself to rule the world. No, sir. No one knows that you were the third one... Solidus. ...What should I do about the woman? Yes sir. I'll keep her under surveillance. Yes. Thank you. Good-bye...... Mr. President.

He's getting off lightly, but at least we can all hope for a slow death.
Or maybe they should throw mustard gas at him, like he did to the Kurds.

Just a small note to temper the glee. If he doesn't repent before death, this is generally one you put in the loss column, not the win column. Saddam's execution is cutting our losses in anticipation of further negatives, not a genuine victory. It's as necessary as poop scooping and just about as joyous for me.

It's nice to see someone not taking delight in a man's doom and eternal damnation while gleefully fantasizing about his suffering and torment.

Though I do not rejoice at his damnation, I am happy and relieved to see the final end of the reign of an unspeakably wicked man.
<I>
My life goes on in endless song
Above earths lamentations,
I hear the real, though far-off hymn
That hails a new creation.

Through all the tumult and the strife
I hear its music ringing,
It sounds an echo in my soul.
How can I keep from singing?

While though the tempest loudly roars,
I hear the truth, it liveth.
And though the darkness round me close,
Songs in the night it giveth.

No storm can shake my inmost calm,
While to that rock Im clinging.
Since love is lord of heaven and earth
How can I keep from singing?

<B>When tyrants tremble in their fear
And hear their death knell ringing,
When friends rejoice both far and near
How can I keep from singing?

In prison cell and dungeon vile
Our thoughts to them are winging,
When friends by shame are undefiled
How can I keep from singing?</b>

-Enya</I>

And his equally offensive sons before him.

I'm tempted to mention my concept for a slow, agonizing death. Okay, I will. Vivisection by microtome.

And Iraqi state-run television is now confirming the hanging has occured, as has one of Saddam's lawyers.


...now see, my idea would've been to wait for New Year's Eve and do a Baghdad recreation of New York's 'ball drop'. Instead of a big glowing ball, they could drop the dictator on the gallows to mark the new year ;)

And this is one of the nice things about being an unbeliever. I can feel good about a scumbag getting his just desserts without any twinges of guilt whatsoever. The downside is that I don't think he'll have an eternity in hell to ponder his errors.

Meryl Yourish is having a haiku-fest in honor of the occasion.

The man is dead; that is enough and more than enough. I pray that God may have mercy upon his soul.

A salute to the Powers That Be for maintaining in every way the appearance of a fair trial. Considering what he did in Iraq, some bias was inevitable, of course; still, in the end, justice was served. The man is dead.

Rest in peace, Saddam Hussein.

Yours truly,

Amen and amen.

The temptation to glee is strong, to dance around singing "He's gone to where the goblins go, beloooooow..." But, I recognize it for what it is. A temptation to be resisted.

While I agree with this.

I think that it is very sad that a lot of people are cheering at the death of a man that, as far as I can tell, still thought that he was doing what he thought was the right thing for his country, even as he died.

I forgive Saddam the sins he has committed against me and my country.
His body is now without life. It is time to move on.

I'd like to humbly direct anyone who's interested to revver.com, which is hosting an amateur footage on someone's cameraphone, which shows the death unedited.

The video is graphic, but not in a gory or bloody sense. Disturbing may be a better word. Upsetting. Soul-chilling.

I would talk about making calm and levelheaded debate I was... convinced would be more celebratory, but it does me well on a deep, deep level, to know that even here, there is given more credence given to the serene prayer and mourning for the inevitable damnation of another soul, albeit a stained and tainted one.

The video is frightening, on a real level. The video is of a man dying. It is graphic, but, if you can stand it, I recommend it. It will reveal a lot about the entire world and, more importantly, about yourself.

Link, here, to Revver.com. Viewer discretion is advised.
I would have hoped to say something meaninful, or possible inciteful. But, alas.
How goes the world today? From right to left or left to right? Perhaps it runs round mad reels, turning in on itself only at long last to blow away with the leaves and gutter-trash.
How goes the world today? Top to Bottom or Bottom to Top? Perhaps it will rise high enough so that it may see the back of its own head, in a maddening tunnel of infinity.
How goes the world today? Clockwise or Counter? Perhaps it will spin itself mad, curling a spring-from into endlessness.
Or maybe, today, it will just stop.

Saw that video earlier on Google videos. From what I can see, the man looked genuinely afraid.

On one hand, I approve of his death: whosoever sheds man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed. On the other, I wish he had not made the choices that would have set him dancing on a gibbet; and his apparent lack of remorse deeply saddens me. I think the world will be better because of it; Iraq has reminded the world that there is always a price for tyranny. Kim Jong-Il and Amadinejad should benefit from Saddam's example.

Does anyone here actually think he'd qualify as even a "good Muslim"? I'll bet he broke plenty of their rules without repentance.

If he reaches an afterlife, may he discover himself alone in the company of 72 virgins - all of them male, dominant-gay, and diseased, without a drop of lube available anywhere. :twisted:

"BIAS?"

No, Wanderer, that was known as "guilty as ten hells, and everyone but a blind deaf mute knew it."

That was an UNfair trial, in that it wasted months of time as well as tremendous amounts of money, and exposed the innocent and law abiding to retaliation by Saddam's skulking cronies.... so that everyone involved could play Courtroom, so as not to offend the sensibilities of a bunch of worthless, corrupt, criminal air-wasters known as <I>THE UNITED NATIONS.</i> We all had to go through the FARCE of pretending a shameless mass murderer, rapist, and despot was possibly innocent of the hideous crimes he committed in full view of the world. The only BIAS present was the pretentious notion that a courtroom and a lawyer held greater authority than ironclad reality, and that Saddam Hussein had a right to anything more than a shotgun barrel in his mouth and a quick burial in a hog wallow.

"Bias." Sweet God Almighty save us.

I've read the NY Times account of the execution. His last words were a curse on the Americans and the Persians. Damn poor way to enter into eternity, with curses hanging on your lips. I'm not qualified to decide where he goes from here, but if he shows the same attitude before the Righteous Judge that he showed before the temporal one, well, I don't know......
