Is it really appropriate to show the final moment of a man's life, regardless of his crimes in the past, perhaps it would be better to remove this?

Casual Observer said...

In this case, YES!

So Guido, now we know beyond doubt. We've wondered whether you were a delicious political gossip or perhaps even in your better moments a poltical satirist. Now we know your just another red top sensationalist.

Yes you idiot. Are you a bit slow? We do sensationalism on a good day.

I can't believe the drippy inconsistency... It would be nice if such indignation were shown against the daily wasting of civilians, our soldiers, or some of the more spurious noises from our own politicians.

Saddam's plight is a simple case of - what goes around, comes around. Tough shit.

my dear guido, i fear you do protest too much. Surely no one save perhaps one of his daughters would mourn the passing of Saddam. It is the crass celebration of it that does demean you.

yep, I'm afraid you've lost the plot.

I'm not going to waste my time on your blog ever again.

I suspect neither will M&S or that fancy underwear place very soon either.

Was a bit of a bodge job if you ask me. A good hangman should have his quarry dispatched within seconds of arriving on the gallows. These monkey's left him standing there a whole minute after the rope went on.

Bingo! - another one bites the dust. Good riddance to bad rubbish. Thanks for putting it on here Guido. Ignore the poncey do-gooders who would much rather people like him existed in the world. They all come from Islington and read the Grauniad anyway.

I think it's important that people see the cruelty of execution. We're so quick to want to execute people, but then we refuse to watch the result of our cry for vengeance. A nod of the head for this, Guido. Not because it's right, good, or exciting, but because it exposes the morbid, sub-humanness of execution.

Ah the execution. People should be forced to watch this as, like it or not, we UK taxpayers have bought and paid for it all.

Our money has enabled the war, his capture and showtrial right through to the cheerleading for Al Sadr who's Islamist (pro Iranian) militia our armed forces have been fighting *against*...

While cheering his dispatch, we ought to remember that the bravely masked men who did the deed are not our friends and are in all probability our next foes in that theatre.

Consistency is a beautiful thing ;)
