Saddam Guilty: Death By Hanging in "Off Topic" Posts Posted November 8, 2006 breaking news not yet updated on Internet, but saw it live on CNN. will update..... This was the first post, so yes 9/11 is off topic. Now before you go jumping all over me, I never said you could not express you opinions, but the reality is that the death of Saddam is taking a back seat to many of the later posts. What about another thread titled Saddam's sentence, is the timing a coincidence? I liked the direction that the thread was heading in regard to whether the death penalty was justified in Saddam's case, etc... (a very interesting path the thread was heading in) Now that is moreso on topic. However, I will step aside as the original topic starter is Ledanek, and if he does not have a problem with the direction it is heading then, so be it. Terrible man, but I think life in prison would be a more fitting sentence. Just the opinion of a humble pascifist. I always find it interesting when someone's brother's cousin's girlfriend's best friend's brother's third ex-wife's uncle's insurance agent's lawyer's partner knows a guy who lived in Iraq and was tortured by Saddam. And suddenly everyone is an expert. The fact is that many US servicemen were tortured etc... during captivity in the first Gulf War. I don't know about so and so's mother's son's, brother's cousin, but who cares right? We already know of US servicemen that WERE tortured. I agree that there are too many "side stories" that crop up in times like this, but why talk about them when there are many leginitmate cases we already know about right? I'm not attacking you, I'm just saying forget about the tall tale tellers, as we don't really need their stories. We have legitimate incidents that should have our attention.
