Did anybody else see the videos of the pre execution. It's nothing gruesome, you just see them put the noos on him and see the execution chamber, I was surprised they'd even shown that much. I didn't think in the common day they would hang anybody, but now he's gone. If you're looking for the video, go to google, and type in Saddam Hussein Execution under videos, can't post anythint here though, I don't think.
that sick bastard! That is someone I had no sympathy on and I will be cold hearted when it comes to him both him and his sons were sick minded ill people!!!!I think they should have done more torteous things than hanging.Of course he shows no sorrow......he killed at least 300,000 people in sick ways,sorrow is far from his mind.
Im glad they do hangings over there.They dont do it in the US......no we just laze around and dont execute anyone hardly.no matter how awful the crime.Atleast they tak care of the problem.If he wasin our hands he still would be alive!
And it's true. People in Iraq have such little trust in the government and how things are done there, that they really have to see it, to believe it. That's why Hussein's execution was not only filmed, but done in still photo as well, and it remains to be seen exactly what portions will continue to be released.
I've read that he wanted to actually go before a firing squad, I think his idea was that he was too good to die like a common criminal by hanging.

i don't know, man...i am skeptical. it all seems to have gone too smoothly to me. they made lots of money off his court-TV like trial, took him back to baghdad where there are many look-alikes/stand-ins, his brother controls the media, and he has powerful ties to shiite leaders. there weren't but 15 witnesses...i hope it's true.
Hello guys: I saw the news(It was on all over the news until dawn actually!(grin) FINALLY! He's actually Gone!Did you read the article in Time Magazine about the Iraqi Attorney who for years would get thrown in Jail,multiply raped and sodomized and then thrown in the Mental hospital? She is a basket case now and even unable to care for herself.Her Crime?:She defended a man who flirted with(unbeknownst to him)a girlfriend of one of Saddam's sons(who was married at the time)they threw him in jail for that "horrendous" crime. The Saddam regime proceeded to do the abovementioned things to her for over a decade, and that is just one of the many horrendous things he has done and so many other people(including many muslims say we have no reason to try or kill him? maybe this will empower the Iraqi people to assist us with the insurgency and get our guys home faster! I hope so
PuppyLove:Due to so many people being against "such a CRUEL and UNUSUAL" way of punishing peopleStates have ceased to hang people(There was an article in a newspaper that said it wasn't as efficient as lethal injection anyway.I wish they would do the firing squad thing again. the killer Gary Gilmore(Utah) requested a firing squad and the state actually Granted his request!tons of lawyers actually acrambled to object and put in papers to abate that action though Gary himself would not sign any papers mocking the lawyers for doing such an idiotic thing since He himself had requested it. Those in the State Board were actually questioning his sanity andbrought him before them to explain his request. He was totally reasonable giving intelligent responses and there was nothing they could argue with about his request so they granted it!
currently there is 6 states that carry capital punishment by hanging. I think that instead of saddam being hung in the iraq that he should have been hung here. I don't know that's just my opinion. I think that he is absolutly peer evil. I also thought that it's weird that he didn't show any remorse for all what he has done!!! I don't understand why we didn't hang him sooner. and I'm a Bush fan but I don't understand what we are still doing in iraq. could someone please tell me why!!
and do any of you guys think that we will have more bombings due to his hanging or what?

"currently there is 6 states that carry capital punishment by hanging."
I'm not sure how this is possible as Washington state is the only remaining state with facilities for hanging.
And as far as having him executed here, I don't see the reasoning for that.
His execution means far more to the people of his country who were affected by or lost family due to his hand, his execution should be done on their soil by their own people, otherwise it would mean nothing to them, really, aside from thinking the dirty Americans had even more to do with it.
well I asked my daddy and that's what he told me was that there was 6 states that currently do capital punishment but he could also be wrong. and I didn't think of that (when your were talking about saddam being exicuted by his own people) thanks for telling me about that. I see what your saying and it's true.
do you think that there will be more bombings in the u.s.a because of his hanging or do you think that we proved our piont that if you bomb us then we will find you and bring you to justice.
and rescuepup, I would just like to say that I like bush I think that he would have don't a better job then that kerry would have done. but I don't agree with some things that bush has done. adn I also think that the troops should be brought back to the u.s. so that there is no more blood shed then there has already been
why would you guy think that it is all fake about the hanging?
