We hung Saddam: Don't we all feel great?
I challenge anyone who believes in capital punishment to explain to me why the execution of Saddam Hussein is morally correct or helpful to the country.

And I don't buy the argument that we get to "move on" now. End the trials and stick him in a jail where he'll never be on television again, and you can move on equally well.

What a modern society we do live in, where we punish the murderer by murdering him.

We're in societal kindergarten.

    I don't buy that arguement either, but for the sake of reality, it was not "we" who had Saddam hung, it was the govt of Iraq.

    They do not subscribe to the niceties of modern society and to them (at least several tens of thousands) Saddam's death brings closure.

    For the record, I only beleive in capital punishment for the gravest of crimes, genocide being high among them.
