I think SH had to be executed as a symbol to end the past and to help the country and region move forward. If he was to remain alive he would always be there with what he stood for and giving hope to his followers.
 
The main point of the trial was to execute him, that is why they choose that particular case.

To have a slightly retrospective view and play devils advocate. With the war on Iraq that was approved by the US Congress and British Parliament. Innocent civilians have been killed in Iraq from the allied invasion. Do the Heads of State from these country's also go on trial for war crimes?

I am not against the death penalty for certain crimes.

There will always be a certain amount of collateral damage in war-you go into it not being naive and thinking anything else-that isn't a war crime-but the cost of war.

Saddam Hussein was a murdering thug.he allowed his two psychopathic sons to shredder people in a giant wood chipper-feet first if they were really feeling annoyed at you.There are plenty of videos on the net showing his people cutting out peoples tongues,breaking arms for missions not carried out,amputations etc. (UTUBE) Not to mention all the recorded atrocities.
George Bush and his administration may be wrong,and dickheads to boot.....but that does not put them in the same league as that pig.

As an American,with members in my family having served,I can say with absolute conviction,no matter what the politics are,99% of our military ,to their best ability,  cause no harm to innocent people,they try to protect them if they can,and sometimes die doing it.

God Gives life, let God take it away.

But the bible also says to the affect that if one man kills another man then he shall be put to death for his offense.

No.  Despite what many think, this war was indeed conducted and allowed to proceed by International Law and because of UN resolutions. 

Only if the military was directed to specifically go out and kill innocent civilians on purpose can potential war crimes be charged.  Collateral damage is not a war crime offense.

They are reporting one of the witnesses told him "See you in hell" as they hung him.  There will be a full investigation.

God Gives life, let God take it away.

An "Eye for an Eye"? Think about it for a second.
According to the bible, the very first murder when Cain killed Able, God sent Cain to wander the rest of his life. Eye for an Eye, was again mans decision, not Gods.

But this was Old Testament, before a position of deeper compassion and more intricate thinking was established.

I really am wrestling with the hanging thing:  I think God gives life, so only He should take it away -- but while I feel guilty about it, I'm so relieved Saddam is gone!  I think that's because at least this way, it seems settled.  But I think the real victory was in seeing him in court, a miserable, helpless, powerless, pathetic little man.  And I have no big problem with the death sentences that were given to Nazi leaders, either, although I think the greater cautionary tale was told by the guys who spent the rest of their lives in prison, isolated from the humanity they had chosen not to belong to anyway.  I think such a punishment for Saddam would have been more effective overall, because he could have served a long time as an "audio-visual aid" for other power-mad lunatics, and suffered more while he was at it!

Regardless that I am against death penalty, hanging is a brutal, medieval way of doing it...almost as medieval as dialysis  >:D

 ;D >:D

But seriously, I agree it is a brutal way of putting someone to death, however have you seen some of the ways he tortured people? In my opinion he got of very, very, lucky. I would have suggested at the very least "STONING". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoning

I think Ghandi said an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.

gulf war and now my little brother is fighting in mosul. iraq. I served as well. There is nothing you could have done to him to pay
for everything he did. So lock and load and shoot at the targets downrange!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He did get off easy. 

They should have first tortured him the exact same way as what he did to the people of Iraq before executing him.

I think he should have been forced to serve those he committed crimes against.  Paving roads, weeding gardens, cleaning toilets.  Backbreaking labor for years.

Aside from the moral pros or cons, I think the real goof is that by having a hanging, with taunting, etc., he was made to look like a victim, which never should have happened.  The guy was pure evil, and he managed to look like he was being picked on.

I used to be against the death penalty, but then Ted Bundy killed one of my friends.  I saw what her family went through, and still goes through, because of what he did.  I saw what happened to the families of the other girls here in Utah that Bundy killed.  One mother still leaves her porch light on every night because they never found her daughter's body and she wants the light on in case she comes home, even though she knows Bundy admitting to killing her over thirty years ago.

I've come to believe that while the death penalty is barbaric, it's the only option we have to deal with particularly heinous offenders.  I know that I, and all my friends, were terrified when Bundy had been captured and then he escaped.  We knew what had happened to our friend and we thought he could come back and it could happen to us.  I know I breathed a sigh of relief the day he was executed, even though I had thought that I didn't believe in the death penalty.

I've read that many, many people in Iraq will feel the same way.  That they are so afraid of Hussein that they will only feel safe with him dead.  If it gives them peace after what they've been through, it seems like a small price to pay to have executed him.
