I mean, come on, we've made it legal to torture our enemies, why aren't we torturing the butcher of Baghdad? That takes all the fun out of it if you ask me, I think Saddam would've at least tortured his enemy before executing him.

If we are going to behave like barbarians and have the guy hanged, why stop there? Why not broadcast his last tortured moments of waterboarding or electrocution on live t.v. for the kiddie's enrichment?

I've heard a lot of repubs suggest a more biblical execution for this evil demon, being fed to the lions for instance, or a drill to the skull, Sunni style.

I'll forever be disappointed if they don't at least make him listen to Britney Spears for a few hours before they stretch him.

1. Drawn and Quartered would get more viewers
as long as were going to murder him we might as well make some money.

2. Perhaps execution a la William Wallace.
This seems so very BushCo:

On 23 August 1305, following the trial, Wallace was taken from the hall, stripped naked and dragged through the city at the heels of a horse to Smithfield Market. He was drawn and quarteredstrangled by hanging but released near death, emasculated, eviscerated and his bowels burnt before him, beheaded, then cut into four parts (the four horrors) at the Elms in Smithfield. His preserved head was placed on a pike atop London Bridge. It was later joined by the heads of his brother, John, and Simon Fraser. His limbs were displayed, separately, in Newcastle, Berwick, Stirling and Aberdeen.
