Why is it when we read of all the murders he commandeered, of all the people he had tortured, of the gassing of the Kurds and the financial rape of his own country that led people to starve we wanted him dead yet when it comes to pulling the trapdoor lever most of us feel inhuman for doing it?

Cold blooded killing is still extremely unpleasant to most people with any feelings at all and yet I know he deserves it.

Maybe I'm too soft.

Ooooo, the death penalty debate, this could get heated!! ;-) Its always a good one to start in the pub with your mates. I guess after this one is done, it will be discussed in a lot of pubs around the land.

Im for it. Only for extreme crimes and where there is NO doubt and there is no chance of rehabilitation. Why keep someone in jail at tax payers expense for 50 years when you could do the world a favour?

Mind you, i do think there should be an underground city where criminals could be made to work for the good of the country. None of this xbox and holiday malarky, get them building things!! Make it unpleasant so people dont want to go back!!

Maybe im too hard.

For him? death is the easy way out, and he knows it.

I think he should be locked up in a cell, given 2 (rubbish) meals a day, not allowed to excersise outside of the cell and not allowed any TV, Books, Games, Cellmates or human interaction.

That has to be a less favourable option for him.

& I guess I'm too hard.
Normally I don't favour the death penalty.
But in this case there is no doubt.
& when there is no doubt, I'm afraid I'm not inclined to get all warm & fuzzy.
&, of course, that big moral question... would you pull the trigger yourself?
It is no different than if he had murdered MY children.
& I would kill to avenge them.
If there was no doubt.
So yes. I would pull that trigger myself.

Like I said,
In some respects,
perhaps I am too hard.

My only concerns would be...

Do we want to risk making a Martyr of this man?
He still has a very 'dedicated' following.

&, of course,
There is always the
"let him who is without sin...."
factor.
Not many governments can stand up to that one.
A big disadvantage of Tyranny really,
Makes it so much harder to hide the evidence in layers of beuraucracy.

ًWhy not start a poll about what people think about the hanging of Saddam Hussain.

I can't create new posts in the poll section for some reason???
