Curtains for Saddam (by guest blogger Peter)

So it looks like Saddam’s appointment with the devil happens tonight. Although I’m personally opposed to the death penalty (including, admittedly, this case), you gotta admit that a hangman’s noose is a luxury when compared to being fed feet first into metal industrial shredders or being forced to drink gasoline prior to facing a barrage of gunshots.

Yeah, I’m generally opposed to the death penalty (the obvious exception is for treason which is clearly spelt out in the Constitution-though never carried out alas these days) though I’m not unhappy about this decision. My concern is that this will accelerate the divide in Iraq and lead to further civil war with our brave men and women in the middle.

Actually, death by hanging is pretty horrible.

At least it’s quick. Usually.
