    I'm not surprised he didn't commit suicide since he is a huge coward. And I too think it's very appropriate for him to be tried under Iraqi law. He's lucky he isn't going to be tried the same way that he has "tried" other Iraqis or he would have been shot and killed on the spot. Saddam is an evil, evil man and has killed millions. Iraq and the world will be a better place when he's gone for good.

    I said exactly the same thing this morning...

    This evening at dinner, my folks brought up an interesting point about that I hadn't thought about... If he is simply executed on sight, he becomes a martyr. Thats the last thing we want. In enough Arab eyes we are nothing more than 'evil Western infadels who bring murder and destruction to the Arab world' We already have his followers running suicide bombs into our troops (I believe the death toll for U.S. troops since the end of active warfare is 190+), we certainly dont want to add to the fire. Let him be tried in Iraq, right in front of the entire population and let THEM decide what to do with him.. If they decide to execute him then nobody can blame us.

    When interrogating people like Saddam and not letting him sleep for endless hours that could be a form of torture. The US has there ways...tee hee

    Let us not forget that americans STILL run the School of the Americas, as well as provide training for 160+ foriegn nations around the world in military, intelligence, and insurgency as well as groups that aren't even recognized nations. Many of the problems that are in Iraq were caused by American funding and training. To think that our government is above torture is to simply ignore that we teach people how to do it. And just last year Bush reinstated the CIAs black ops program. That's the one that allows our government to assasinate people that aren't overly helpful to American interests. I would recommend watching "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" for a hint at the great things that our military and intellegencce communities are up to when they're not invading foriegn countries.

    It's great that Saddam's been caught, but not because he's a jerk. It's great because it allows the Iraqi people to move forward in establishing a new government with the confidance that he won't just come back from hiding with some kind of coup. It allows them to live with less fear and get on with their lives.

    Life is a little thing when all we're concerned about is revenge rather than living.

    Good news for the unstable region, the Iraq and its people.

    But the USA have supported Saddam a long time, so they solved a problem they built up before. See this link, it is not a fake: http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/NSAEBB/NSAEBB82/
