Well since he is sentenced to hang all he has to do to stay alive is Eat A LOT, because legally if you way over about I think 295 pounds or something they can't hang you because your head would pop off.... and that's inhumane

I'm not sure if it's true for Iraq, but in some Middle Eastern countries they hang people by tieing the noose around the victim's neck and then lifting them slowly off the ground. Apparently it is a much slower death than the if the victim is dropped, because the neck doesn't break so they just choke to death.

(What a pleasant post.)

Excuse me? "other VICTIM?" Comparing him to JC? Are you saying that hussein is a "Victim?" You MUST be either joking or didn't realize what you wrote.

Perhaps you do not know what it means to be a victim of capital punishment, but all victims of capital punishment are victims of capital punishment.

If Jesus Christ were born today, you'd be wearing an electric chair around your neck.

Instead of a crucifix.

You dodged my question, or didn't answer it directly. First, hussein is STILL alive; the same cannot be said for his HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF REAL VICTIMS who he MURDERED! Do you consider Hussein to be a "victim?" Yes or no?

Victim: 1. a person who suffers from a destructive or injurious action or agency

Assuming Saddam gets whacked, he would then technically be a victim of capital punishment. The institution of capital punishment, through an injurious action, made him suffer. Doesn't mean that he is THE victim, though.

Based on all those all-caps words you use, and our previous public discussions of your proneness to addiction, I suggest you go to a Rage-a-holics Anonymous Meeting forthwith!

Bottom line is that I don't consider Hussein to be a "victim" as you seem to. I'll let it go at that.

And I too hate to see Jesus as "victim." Jesus was never one to whine about how he was viewed, even when things weren't going so well.

Perhaps this is not the thread for me to chime in, but if I let this go, GOD knows how things will get. Personally, the number of errors in the current fora posts has frankly overwhelmed me. I just can't keep up.

Error-to-word ratios above 25% are exhausting. If I stray from reality to grab an analogy, they affect me like kryponite affects Clark Kent.

Thanks for chiming in, Ms. A. We ALL appreciate it.

[QUOTE=brendan]bah, whats the point in killing him? and hanging is definately a method that'll make the americans seem very middle ages.
QUOTE]

The U.S. is not hanging him. He's been tried under Iraqi law and found guilty.
He'll be punished for his crimes under Iraqi law, which happens to be hanging.


How many of the Judges' family members have been murdered during the trial by Saddam's followers? And you want to keep him around into his old age so his guards families will be murdered also?
