Posted: 13 years ago

I was just wondering if you guys agree on the execution of Saddam Hussain?Confused, the thing is that i felt that the hang system was not worth it, i mean i felt he should have been tortured more, not that i am not kind-hearted but just that he deserved much more, as much as i know and to tell you i don't know much about him, but just wanted your opinions and suggestionsBig smile, and a few Q's for you-

If not hanged, what else could have been the punishment for him, if you were the judge?

The things he did to other ppl, do you think him being hanged is the same as what he did to others?

Do you think they should have waited a little longer before excuting him, atlest till Eid?Confused

What would you have felt if a victim who had been killed by Saddam was your relative or somewhere related to you?

and atlast: Was Saddam in any way a good leader to the Iraqi's?

Feel free to add your own Q'sBig smileEmbarrassed

i agree with Saddam's execution..he was a dictator and killed so many people in his own country Angry and that too, in a crucial way Ouch but stll, i think maybe his punishment was a little too harsh...i dont think that punishment should be given to anyone...

If not hanged, what else could have been the punishment for him, if you were the judge?

I think maybe....well....being hung kinda matches his punishment..he kinda deserves it, no offense....but maybe life inprisonment Ouch

The things he did to other ppl, do you think him being hanged is the same as what he did to others?

I think being hung is a less of punishment, looking at what he did to others but i think its wrong to do it...i mean, i know he did many wrong things,,,but i dont think this punishment was right

Do you think they should have waited a little longer before excuting him, atlest till Eid?

Well....yes, i think that would have been nice....after Eid, after he prayed, atleast. It would have been nice and more rewarding

What would you have felt if a victim who had been killed by Saddam was your relative or somewhere related to you?

I would be VERY mad Angry I would hate Saddam even more than anyone! Ouch Its horrible just hearing about all that he's done to strangers to me...but if it was a family member... Ouch Ouch Ouch

and atlast: Was Saddam in any way a good leader to the Iraqi's?

No, i dont believe so...he ruined his country and pu all the citizens into a total darkness when they couldnt even be sure if their home was safe for them Ouch

I don't know - when he was first captured I was all for the death penalty; after all, the man was a murderer. But watching the news in the last few days and seeing the images of him being led to the gallows brought out the human in me - he may be a bad man, but did he deserve to die like that? Would it have been a better punishment for him to remain in jail all his life? This way, for some and possibly himself, he is a martyr...I feel like the death penalty should NOT be be given to anyone - if Saddam was a murderer, this execution also makes *us* murderers. As Gandhiji said, "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind". Edited by psawyer - 13 years ago

This is exactly how I feel !!!!!

I tried to say it in the "There is something i just have to say" thread but not in so many words.

I was quite saddened by his execution ? Confused even though I know he was a cruel and cold man !

But I too feel he should have remained in a dark prison cell.... to suffer for the rest of his life or if he was to die - then they should have just shot him dead.

I don't think anyone should be hanged.

Hmm,

1. I am not for death penalty.
2. I didn't have the gut to watch 'all' on tv.
3. Sadaam did do those wrong deeds; US brought him to trial. But I feel that his trial should have taken place in an international/crimes against humantiy court. At least, then the punishment that gets decided on is somewhat mutual.
4. Indeed sad to see a man get punished rather than reformed (general opinion/ not only for saddaam)
