While everyone is focusing on Saddam's murder
I think it's time to consult the Osama Clock:

As of this post, Osama has been missing 1934 days, 18 hours, 15 minutes, 34 seconds.

Full disclosure: I'm against the death penalty for all people, regardless of the nature of the crime. I've never wavered from my position and never will.

2. Call it what you want but it's still murder
no matter who executes it.

9. And I'm fine with that.
I also swat flies and step on cockroaches.

Glad to know I'm not alone though, judging from the various threads.

3. when the state or government executes one of its own citizens...
..then yes, it's murder. State-sanctioned murder.

Saddam is scum and no one should mourn his passing, but let's not pretend that killing him is in any form of justice.

6. To make it all seem like the Iraq invasion was legitimate and terrorism will be magically gone...

As BushCo (and the talking-heads) tell us it was all worth it...Where were they in 1985...when they were Saddam's allies selling him weapons to create a neutral with Iran...now he's disposable...what bullshit...And now Iraq is ten times worst off...but don't tell anyone...it was and is ALL about profits and image...and stealing oil.

Now onto prolonging the wars for profit...And it will give them more time for more profits as we scream amongst ourselves!

7. It's called Bait and Switch
Oldest trick in the book.

And with Saddam, goeth all the dirty little secrets of the Bush & Rumsfeld, Cheney dynasty. How fucking convenient.

Hey dudes, what's the rush? Let him ROT in a jail cell.

8. That's whats so dissapointing about this.
I was looking forward to a long trial where Saddam was going to sing like a bird in heat about all the neat weapons and help he got from the US.

10. Yep
Murder: kill intentionally and with premeditation.

The fact that the govenment adds a qualifier ("unlawfully") merely means that they say it's okay for them to do it.
