I can't really see the point of posting that. Quite disgusting really.
The guy's dead. Leave him be .

Pierrepoint himself would have been proud (excepting, of course, the "pre-drop experience").

But practice makes perfect. When they run out of baathists they are welcome to stage a judicial execution, or ten, in the ZaNuLabour "cabinet".

So what is the point of posting this vid?

Quite disgusting Guido, there is no need for it.

So don't click on the link, if it bothers you. He clearly put a "graphic content" warning.

There's actually been some interesting debate on this subject on The Reg, starting from the angle of the cellphone footage and "citizen journalism". For myself, I believe these images - with appropriate warnings - are necessary to counter the propaganda put out that war can be clean and clinical. Any doubts I had about the rights and wrongs of invading Iraq were dispelled when Al Jazeera posted those images of bombed children, which somewhat countered the footage put out by the military of their wonderful precision munitions.

It's a picture of a dead man for goodness sake - you poms ought to ratchet the hype down a tooth.
It seems to me that Saddam is the only guy who has displayed any dignity in this extraordinary pantomime.

"looks like he's sleeping" - yeah apart from the massive fecking hole in his throat.

I was waiting for him to wake up and shout "Boo!" at the camera.

Which is far more important than the innocent people he exterminated isn't it.

No it isn't but I suspect that Guido put the vid up to increase his own viewing numbers. The pictures are guaranteed to bring out the english baying dogs in their hordes - Guido did a sales pitch. It's not about justifucation, it's about decency.

The school kids are passing these things to each other on their mobiles - forward the British culture towards dignity.
