Saddam Could Meet Justice Soon

Saddam lost his appeal to reverse his death sentence in the Iraqi Supreme Court of Appeals. There are many on both sides of the political spectrum who oppose the death penalty. I favor the death penalty for one main reason: justice is not satisfied while murderous monsters are allowed to enjoy life; even if they are deprived of freedom. Justice is often pictured as a set of balanced scales. Justice is like a mathematical equation demanding to be balanced. Consider those innocent of crime who have no home or meals provided for them. They have no voice to be heard. Compare that to the murderer who is provided a place to live with meals prepared for them. When they speak, how often do we see the world hold a microphone to capture their words in their morbid fascination of death. How often do they use that microphone to ridicule what is right. Their victims are long in the dust deprived of life and liberty. To let them live is a mockery of justice. I do not thirst for blood or death, but I will feel that the equation of justice is balanced when Saddam breathes his last. However, I won't believe it until it happens. This will be a test of resolve for the Iraqi Government. I hope they pass.

    Immediate hanging would be just about right; and it would, in my humble opinion, be as close to justice as we can get.

    Hammer,
    And the good thing about hanging is that you can reuse the rope.

    That's what was great about the guillotine. One blade was good for a long, long time - and you didn't even have to wipe off the blood between beheadings.

    Looks like it was sooner than everyone thought. I just hope it doesn't escalate the violence any further, though odds of that not happening are close to none. I think it would happen anyway.
