"He who lives by the sword shall die by the sword", which is a semi-quote... only one letter's difference between "word" and "sword".

It would require the utmost self-control, in my case, to refuse NOT being personally and with malice aforethought gratefully assigned the duty to aim America's biggest baddest weapon right straight into the heart of "Sodom Who Sane" (or Hitler, or Amin, or Pol Pot et al). I'd walk away from that duty being able to shave in the mirror and kiss my dog every day. Men who have burdened their people with horror deserve horror in return... which is why, of course, Hitler took not only his own life, but the lives of his mistress and his dog.

However, as so many say, "We are a nation of laws, not of men." On that grounds therefore, it would not bother me one bit if the man were to be relegated to a very deep spider hole in a place such as, e.g. Antarctica, without clothing... lots of Irish food though, and plenty of paper and pencil for him write out his "thoughts" upon, solely for the sake of future generations, of course. I say, pardon me brothers and friends, "We are a nation of men."

That man is the contemporary manifestation of Adolph Hitler & Co., without any shadow of doubt.

I am NOT ever going to advocate the "Maximum", or the "Death" penalty... for it is said in the commandments, "Thou shalt not kill." I guess The Lord was meaning, "Thou shalt not kill on purpose nor by sleight-of-hand, nor by simple meanness nor by government edict." NO killing, works for me. Dying is another thing. Revenge is another one of those things. States have amply demonstrated their complete INability to fairly judge the right of a person to live or die.

No, he should be let to live, without torture, without human contact, and FAR beyond anything ever dealt out from Nuremberg. Let us make a true lesson... to ALL who dream of or wish for maximum control.

So "Sodom Who Sane" must live, he must be FORCED to live, and that shall be his ultimate penalty. I would like to live long enough to see how that criminal man dies, and where HIS remains (vis a vis Idi Amin!) might dwell in the hereafter.

We must never think he would be gone merely by killing him... if that were to have ever been so, then there could never have been an American revolution against tyrannical Brits (who STILLLLLLL wrongly occupy Ireland).

Now, I am truly in deep trouble... but this is what my heart says back to the poll.

Think back...think back

Bluehawk,

The word kill in the Hebrew text is thou shall do no murder. Justice is a far cry from murder.

Next thing you know, murder for justice gets justified and innocent ones die.

Blue,

If murder for justice gets justified and innoncent ones die it is not justice it is a crime that requires justice.

Where does it say, where is it written, why MUST it be that to serve "Justice" means to kill?

Use the spider hole he came out of since he's used to living in the lap of luxury and that hole made him feel OK. Put him in that hole after it's been updated and BinLaden has been captured. Put UBL and Saddam in the hole together. The updates should include an electric oven and stove, pots and pans, a sharp butcher knife, dinnerware and silverware and a table set for one. Don't feed either UBL or Sadam.
Reopen the hole after a couple of months and assassinate whoever comes out of it.

No idea were or if what you asked is written but it is written in the Bible "an eye for an eye".

He should have the same things done to him that he and his ilk did to the people of IRAQ, but it should be done with a greater result.

No where is it written that Justice is always served by taking of life. Jusitce can be served in many ways. Old testament law called at times for the restitution of property. There were cities of refuge established for men to run to that had taken the life of another in a struggle to determine if it was self-defense or murder. Justice was served in allowing them safety until the matter was determined. In the case of atrocities such as the ones committed by Saddam Hussein many times the Almighty ordered whole nations to be done away with. We may accuse the Lord God Almighty of being evil or we consider the possibility that he knows something more than we know. I will stake my life on the latter. There is a principal of good and evil that must be admitted to before one understands the principal of Justice being administered in the form of an eye for an eye. In a perfect world we would not have to have this discussion. There would be no Saddam Hussein. We are not as we all know in a perfect world. That world collapsed when the first man and woman determined that they could and would be wiser than the their Creator.

Well, unless someone supplies him with a receiver I do believe he IS out of the gene pool already.

You never know Blue stranger things have happened. We might just get a new administration that feels this poor man needs rehabilitating. No shock on my part. I lived way to long to believe that it couldn't happen. Nuff said.

I would like to see an accounting for all the millions of dollars that has been found all over Iraq and the billions skimmed by this criminal crew. I would then like to see it used for some good humanitarian purposes for the people of Iraq who have suffered so much. Of course, I know this is not going to happen, but that would be the best punishment for Saddam and his henchmen. Executing these folks is really not punishment. Most of them would probably welcome it. Putting them in a maximum security prison, in isolation, for the rest of their natural lives, in my opinion, would be a much better punishment..Having to deal with themselves and their thoughts every day.....and no one else....

LOL, yup you are surely hittin' it right on the head... I suppose it COULD happen. I just have SO much faith and trust in our people who are guarding that lunatic (if he passed gas in the wrong direction from his present place of abode, I do believe the executor would receive nothing more than a, "Well done soldier." ... I guess you are saying "Better safe than sorry"?

Zoomie don't like killing people for "justice" Little Sparrow, don't like it all... tends to lead to some mighty sorrowful errors nobody yet has been able to prevent. I believe we can prevent those...

I understand. And I'm aware that death sentences have been carried out against innocent people. On the other hand we have ample proof this is not an innocent man. My thinking really is that death is the more humane thing to do rather than sinking to the depths of depravity thinking of all sorts of mental torture and physical deprivation. Let the man go to the Judge of all the earth and see what is in store for the his eternal soul. Each of us has our world view and we will probably hold to it until the day we die because of our different backgrounds. We can part in peace on this subject though and just agree to disagree.

Peace on your path,

Perhaps a trial would be a good first step. Then, it's up to the court.
