Wow! When Did CNN Become The Execution Countdown Channel?
This is thoroughly disgusting and a shame on America. I switched to MSNBC and low and behold Tweety was actually a breath of fresh air!

"Count Down To Saddam's Execution"! :puke:

3. No integrity left, whatsoever.
How much do you want to bet that they'll be the first to air video of the hanging?

I figure they've got cash offers circulating for a 'bootleg' copy as I type this.

Fucking death-groupies. I spit on them.

4. When my brother in law switched from CNN
to MSNBC I knew it was all over. They are shameless -calling CNN news is a fugging farce.

8. Send them a Nastygram and let them know you wont tolerate it
You are shutting them off for good, and will be contacting your DEMOCRATIC representative to let them know something must be done to STOP the barbaric obscenity ....

11. this is going to be a disaster,
Saddams hanging on television, replayed in slow motion every thirty seconds for weeks, I guess they just don't think the Arab street is enflamed enough yet.

And for all the posturing about the Iraqi government, this hanging is going to take place in a US prison camp at the Baghdad airport.

Israel figured out a VERY long time ago that making high-profile martyrs doesn't really help their situation.

Oh well, it is just dead arabs and soldiers, nothing to worry our little white heads about.

18. Maybe they're prepping the audience for more deaths--
--of US troops.

CNN is a FAUX wannabe.

23. Not yet, but I'll give it an hour
after they announce the execution has taken place.

The aftermath of this is not gonna be pretty. Not in the least.
