2. What is the likelihood of him getting sprung?
Edited on Fri Dec-29-06 11:49 AM by TechBear_Seattle
Militia members got several of their leaders out of US custody a few weeks ago. What are the chances that Hussein will be recovered by his supporters?

And even more interesting: Might such a disappearance be planned by the Administration and used as justification to increase troop levels and tightening control of Iraq? :tinfoilhat:

3. i still detest the death penalty, anywhere, anytime...
yes, even for the most heinous crimes.....it is barbaric.

that said, I doubt they will execute him on a Friday, the holy day of the week in Islam.
but I'm probably wrong.....lots and lots of people want him dead now, including many in our government....

4. Just returned from a long walk with a fellow from Cairo who walks like an Egyptian...
He wishes Bush and Saddam would swing from the same gallows's pole.

8. Bush may be fating himself
There is something massively linked about committing these acts and condemning another. Bush may find the parallel fate approaching at deterministic pace he presumed upon others.

7. Makes me think of Bush and the Tx. killings. Now no fault of his
The whole thing smells to me. It has been a two bit piece of Am. at work and I am sure the rest of the world will pays us back. It looks so Am. even with our own puppet in their religious doing what we call a Christian thing. I see no good at all in it. Was he a bad man? Yes but I just think we have done this so bad.
