Saddam Hussein is dead! Let the war games begin!

How many young American soldiers will be killed in retaliation? :cry:

5. This is sick
Saddam was not a good man but, this was all for Bush's ego and we have 3000 kids dead and untold Iraqis dead. Somehow Saddam's crimes just don't seem as horrific compared to Bush's

8. Saddam killed a lot of people, particularly Iranians.
He did kill more than Bush, but that's kind of a worthless pissing match.

19. Saddam had his two sons-in-law butchered after they returned to Iraq. He
was an evil S.O.B.

17. No they were already worth it!
Wasn't this whole war worth it and justified the day we captured Saddam rather then the day we executed him! :sarcasm:

22. No, I remember.
It was the statue that made it all worth it. And the flight suit.

12. hanged
I was surprised they hanged him. Its amazing how our mission was supposedly accomplished after we captured him, yet we are still there!

We should have imprisoned him for life and let him die by "accidental poisoning/heart attack" like Milosovic.

15. This is bad and no good shall come of it.
Bush is happy about it, but it does nothing to solve the failed Iraq adventure. Al Sadr and Sistani have more say so in Iraq and American soldiers were put in harm's way for the most ignoble of rationales and hubris of warmongers, neocons and chickenhawks.

:( Home just became a much less safe place!

Now that He's dead, we have finally, finally won the war. We can now send the troops home - yay, this is all part of Bush's new Crawford Ranch plan

21. Experts on Iraq react to the execution of Saddam Hussein
To these experts' opinions I will add the macabre spectacle of the Saddam death watch that the cable news networks indulged in tonight.

'It will be taken as an American decision'

Experts on Iraq react to the execution of Saddam Hussein

Saturday December 30, 2006
The Guardian

Rosemary Hollis, director of research at Chatham House, London


It's tawdry. It's not going to achieve anything because of the way the trial was conducted and the way the occupation was conducted. Life in Iraq has become so precarious that many people are saying it was safer under Saddam Hussein - it makes the whole thing look like a poke in the eye as opposed to closure or some kind of contribution to the future of Iraq. The purpose should have been to see justice done in a transparent manner ... the trial was gruesome, occasionally farcical, and failed to fulfill its promise of giving satisfaction.

Mishkat al-Moumin, former environment minister in transitional Iraqi government, now at the Middle East Institute in Washington

Ordinary people who were abused by him will be relieved. His opponents will be relieved when he is finally gone. He abused people severely and his abuses were on a nationwide scale. He killed so many people. At the political level, those who support him might try to take revenge but on the people's side they will feel they have seen justice done.

Kamil Mahdi, Iraqi expatriate, Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies, Exeter university

Quite honestly, I don't think much of it any more, given what's happening in Iraq. It will be taken as an American decision. The worst thing is that it's an issue which, in an ideal situation, should have unified Iraq but the Americans have succeeded in dividing the Iraqis.
