A stoning would have been preferable.


No argument from me, but he had much more painful ways to
torture people,
ending in death. One of those would have been appropriate.


Torture is one thing, execution is another. But, wrt stoning,
Goggle a little and find out what this is really like. It is a
slow, extremely painful, agonizing way to die not at all like the
human hanging Saddam really received.


Then the stoning is what he deserved.

Had not the U.S. forced the Iraqis to put Saddam on trial
before the entire world, they would have meted out the
traditional punishment for despots like him - stoning to
death. As to the last paragraph, President Bush probably has
been over zealous in promoting these ideals, but then, we all
know this is about oil, right?


A stoning would have been preferable.


Since we're on the subject of what we think personally vs. what is
prudent for our governments to do, I would have paraded Saddam
through the streets of Baghdad, later turn him over to its
citizens, and let them do what they want, which would have been to
kill him in the most gruesome manner possible. But, I like to think
I live in a civil, compassionate country which values fairness and
which also does not want extreme measures used by our military
people who might get captured. The only way to ensure that the
world believes we practice what we preach is to follow
international law as well as American law and the Constitution.


Fairness to evil dictators. For christ's sake.

It turns out that a several protected, rare birds in Germany have been feeding on a species of protected, rare fish. In response to this dilemma, exasperated German officials have decided to do the only thing that makes sense in this kind of a situation - kill all the environmentalists.

If you mean Iraq, I'd agree that our military hasn't been used
effective. But, the initial war in 2003 was over in only 3
weeks. And, I take great umbrage to foreigners who have no
stake in this disparaging the brave men and women who wear our
uniforms in the defense of freedom everywhere so I don't
appreciate people who say we've gone soft.


The whole world has gone soft. They've forgotten the meaning
of the word "enemy". Giving an evil dictator a fair trial was
just crass stupidity.


The only "crass stupidity" here is you. You and the other
pacifist non-contibutor countries should know better than to
actually follow advise this disingenuous and nonsensical.

I judge by the tone of your reply that you're a foreigner.
Fine. Now, how about discussing your country's recent
successes and failures in the War on Terror.


We're just as soft as you lot. I'd blow up the whole of Iraq.


What Socialist country do you live in? I hardly think the United
States is soft, has gone soft, nor ever been soft, but I can't
say the same for the Canadians, French, Germans, or even the
Brits. And, countries such as Belgium, Norway, Sweden, and the
like never have had a credible military.


Your racist

Now, wrt Iraq, I'd personally have followed a friend's advice -
"turn the desert sand into glass".


and not very smart

I am well past sick and tired of foreigners who do no-thing to
defend freedom and haven't since maybe WWII telling my country
what to do and what not to do, meddling in our internal affairs,
and disparaging the brave men and women who defend her with their
lives. Apparently, you're so ashamed of your country that you
won'd even say which Socialist state it is. Fine, just stay on
your side of the pond.

You're all talk.
