Death to Saddam

By Michael J.W. Stickings

It looks like Saddam will be executed by Sunday and perhaps even tomorrow, NBC reports. Like Grace, who posted on this a couple of days ago, I am against the death penalty. Indeed, my opposition to it is absolute, and this case -- the case of a genocidal tyrant -- is no exception. I have no compassion for Saddam, but a suitable and just punishment for his many crimes against humanity would be for him to spend the rest of his life in prison. Another death -- another killing -- is not the answer.

  • Of course I agree, but beyond the moral question I think that the only way Saddam can ever become dangerous again is if we kill him.

  • I feel the same. Actually, Bush's policies have led to the death of more Iraqis than Saddam ever did.
