Saddam to be hanged by Sunday


SaddamThis is good news for the Iraqi people. There are many Bathist loyalists who are participating in the insurrections thinking that they will help Saddam get out of prison and resume a leadership position. By a swift execution of the tyrant, it will cause their will to fight to deteriorate and take a level of pressure off of the newly formed Iraqi Security Forces and US troops.

Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, sentenced to death for his role in 148 killings in 1982, will have his sentence carried out by Sunday, NBC News reported Thursday. According to a U.S. military officer who spoke on condition of anonymity, Saddam will be hanged before the start of the Eid religious holiday, which begins at sundown Saturday.  via

To use crunchy talk, the Iraqi people need closure that Saddam can not come back. A good hanging  will bring that closure and remove another obstacle to peace in Iraq.

UPDATE: Fox News Television is reporting that Saddam has been handed over to the Iraqi Government today, leading to speculation that his demise is imminent. (hat tip Klaasend)

      The taking of the life of any human being is a very grave and somber thing, a tragedy in and of its own self, an admission of the total failure of a human being who is a member of our own humanity.

      When the acts of individuals are so heinous that justice demands that they pay with their own life, the purpose of taking that life is many fold. Justice for the victims, prevention of it ever happening again, deterrence of others from doing the same crimes and on it goes.

      I pray this will bring some semblance of order and peace within Iraq and closure to the many victims of this man, not just the ones whose murder he was tried for but all his victims. I pray daily for peace in Iraq and may this be a step toward achieving that.

      All of the posters and visitors of this board who believe in prayer, please pray for our soldiers and the innocent citizens in Iraq. I imagine this will be a very difficult time there.

      He will be abducted by his followers and vanish. It has
      been planned. I hope I am wrong, but I can’t see him hanged.

      Just to clarify: difficult in the sense, I think the terrorist will go wild, pray for our soldiers and the innocent citizens safety.

      The way the cable networks are covering this, it might as well be called “Celebrity Hanging”.

      Although we jest, society is not far from feeding the christians to the lions. With all the reality TV shows out there we have become calloused.

      This is a horrible person, who should pay for his crimes. He and his sons did terrible things to humanity, albeit half way around the world. A message has to be sent that if you do the crime, you will do the time, or you will pay the price.

      But the way it is being played out in the media, just tasteless crap.

      Sounds like he will be on his way to the other side by 10pm EST.

      If so, let this be a message to all world wide criminals and mad people in leadership. If you commit crimes against humanity, you murder innocents, you pillage your own land, there will be retribution.

      There is no question how much this mad man did. More evil people should meet a similar fate.

      Pray for our troops, that the Almighty keep them safe tonight and forever, but me thinks there will be an immediate rising of violence, but that it will be fall off quickly. The people over there are human too and they need this to begin to get closure over what this evil man did.

      God Bless the troops, God bless the USA. In the words of the song writer, Freedom’s just another word, for nothing left to lose.

      May God protect our FREEDOMS here and abroad.
